The second annual NAR Broker Summit will focus on the state of the real estate industry and trends within large brokerage firms.  That is the thrust of  NAR’s second annual “Broker Forum” to be held in Atlanta on August 6-7.  Registration is currently open and is $79 through June 30th.  I have not attended this forum before but last year’s received quite a bit of positive feedback.  If any of you are interested in attending, please let me know.  If the interest is there, we may be able to coordinate a group to travel together, or, at least, plan to meet together to discuss what we hear.  You can get more information at the following web site:

I also wanted to call your attention to our “Strategic Listening” sessions. We are meeting with WSRAR members to try to find out what you value about your membership, what programs and activities interest you, and how we can better meet your needs going forward.  If you would like to set up a “listening session” please email me and we will set it up right away.  As always, if you would like to just give us some feedback, we appreciate that as well.

Have a happy summer!

Joint Government Affairs Director

Thank you to John Stewart from ECS Carolinas for speaking at our May RCA breakfast. The meeting’s sponsor was Linville | Team Partners. 


I entered the profession like a lot of us did, as a building contractor doing remodeling and repair work.   That kind of work background is a pretty good place to start. Contractors learn from experience lots about homes as they age, sag, rot, leak and creak. Remodeling and repair means getting dirty, wet and exposed to the less-than-romantic side of a home with their bad odors, abuse, bugs, mold, etc. Good home inspectors are used to unpleasant, adverse conditions in their daily work, but we work safely and wash our clothes often.

Thank you to everyone who attended the May 13th WSRAR Home Inspection Committee Onsite Seminar! A huge thank you to the home inspectors who participated: John Guy, Jeff Payne, John Woodmansee, Andy Hilton and Bill Dillon. A big thank you to Mary Plybon who hosted the event at her listing, 1859 Underpass Road in Advance.
