Woods.  Over 130 Realtors® from across Massachusetts participated.

Personal Observation – I just returned from the NAR Mid-Year Conference and Trade Expo which was held in Washington D.C.  My head is spinning with information and a great deal of pride in our organization.  Over the next few weeks we will bring information your way.  Look for it here, on our facebook pages, in the newsletter and DR Digest. 

The rally was a hit! – At the urging of NAR President Moe Veissi, NAR staff and leadership orgainized a massive rally in support of homeownership.  President Moe floated the idea in front NAR staff just 2 months ago and bingo – it happened!  Over 14,000 Realtors® from across the country converged on the grounds of the Washington Monument on May 17.  The 90 minute rally featured comments by Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md) and a host of industry leaders.  

On your behalf – The 980,000 Realtors nationwide were well represented.  The 14,000 members at the rally were there to make their voices heard on behalf of homeowners, real estate investors, and those who aspire to homeownership.
