2018 Hill Day Series: REALTORS® and Affiliates make their voices heard in Olympia
Last week, over 70 Seattle King County REALTORS® and Affiliates made the trip to Olympia for the Washington REALTORS® Legislative Hill Day. The day was packed with nearly 55 meetings with legislators, during which REALTORS® had the opportunity to share stories about the how their clients are faring in a market with a severe shortage of affordable housing options.
Hill Day is just one of the ways REALTORS® advocate for the real estate industry and help consumers enjoy the benefits of homeownership. Said first-time Hill Day attendee Jason Gibbons, “I’ve been licensed for going on 14 years, but just getting involved with SKCR and WR and NAR has completely opened up a different part of my career. Coming to Hill Day and actually sitting in these rooms, just having very real conversations, it really hits home.”
Thank you to all who showed up and made their voices heard, and to our legislators for taking the time to listen to the issues that are most affecting real estate right now. We’ll see you next year!
