We all learned in 2009 how important real estate can be, to both communities and the world at large with the onset of the Great Recession. Many hard working real estate professionals today continue to improve and develop the industry, as well as lobby congress on its behalf.
The leading advocate of this is the National Association of Realtors (NAR), which is the largest trade association in the country as well as the central spokesman for the industry. Boasting more than 1 million members country wide the NAR is involved in many areas of commercial and residential real estate.
The driving force of this organization is the protect individual property rights and advocate for the professional elements of the industry. This includes research, information exchange and professional development. The more lofty goal of the organization is ‘preserving the free enterprise system‘.
NAR is holding a must see Mid Year Legislative Meeting and Trade Expo in Washington DC from May 14-15th 2014. This will allow new and professional realtors alike the chance to trade industry secrets, tips and tricks. Not far from our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast. Alot of people spend their whole life, or a good part of it working on their dream house, or the closest they can afford to it – it only makes sense to understand the industry which gives us these dreams.
We hope to see you there!
