2023 Hill Day: The Member Experience
“REALTORS® are changing lives every day. That is who we are.” This was the message from 2023 National Association of REALTORS® President-Elect Tracy Kasper as she rallied up REALTORS® at Hill Day.
Each year, hundreds of REALTORS® from across Washington State gather for Washington REALTORS® Hill Day to discuss housing priorities with legislators.
After two years of meeting virtually, REALTORS® returned to the “Hill” at the State Capitol in Olympia to meet directly with legislators. Over 500 REALTORS® were in attendance this year, including about 75 from Seattle King County REALTORS®.
“Hill Day is the most impactful event we host all year,” said Michele Hunt, 2023 Seattle King County REALTORS® VP of Governmental & Public Affairs. “As REALTORS®, our power is in our numbers and a large turnout of our members at the capitol advocating with one voice takes our legislative agenda to the next level.”
Hill Day is an important event that gives members an opportunity to see the Government Affairs team working hard to ensure that Washington lawmakers understand the challenges that REALTORS® and consumers face in the market. This year, nearly half of the attendees from Seattle King County REALTORS® were attending for the first time.
Several of our members shared about their personal experiences and stories about the impact of Hill Day.
Thank you to Seattle King County REALTOR® Members and Affiliates for joining us for a productive day on the Hill during Legislative Days.
