I’m on the front lines of Advocacy- from Seattle to WA DC.

I am attending the 2015 National Association of REALTORS® Legislative Meetings in Washington DC.

Today we visited Capitol Hill where we talked to Rep. Suzan DelBene and discussed tax issues that help home owners such as MID (Mortgage Interest Deduction) and finance issues such as the FHA home loans that help many first time home Buyers.

I sat one chair away from Rep. Suzan DelBene and gave a firsthand account of one of my recent transactions where a Buyer was able to purchase their first home because of the requirements in an FHA loan that allows for a lower down payment.

Real estate is one of the most widely held assets, with the home ownership rate at approximately 64 percent. Homeownership is an important part of the economy.

Seattle King County Realtors Governmental & Public Affairs advocacy team is one of the most effective in the country among local trade associations. I am so proud to participate with Young Professionals from Seattle and all around the Nation here in WA DC for Hill Week and Legislative meetings.
