The first week of April over 2500 Texas REALTORS® when Austin for the Realtor Day of the Texas Capitol. This is a record number of attendees participating in the daylong event providing opportunities for lawmakers to meet with local Realtors® from different districts in order to discuss issues critical to Texas real estate.
“Top issues for the 85th Texas Legislature include reforming the property tax process to add honesty and transparency to the local tax rate setting process, maintaining the current title insurance system, and modernizing the home equity lending process in the Texas Constitution.”
Local Realtors® discussed legislation related to rental regulations, transportation companies, eminent domain, election transparency and the Texas Real Estate Commission.
I was proud to be one of the Realtors® attending this event. Lines were long but the benefits were great.
