You may have heard that NAR launched a major national campaign in conjunction with realtor.com®. The “Real People” initiative is part of an advertising effort that is running concurrently with the realtor.com® Accuracy Matters ads. The campaign is important for the industry as NAR and realtor.com® unite under the shared goal of providing the most accurate market data available online along with the deep local knowledge and Realtor® expertise that buyers and sellers need.  #AccuracyMatters

CAN $1000 DRASTICALLY ALTER YOUR BUSINESS?
I don’t think any of us would scoff at someone offering us $1000.  I could do a lot of good things with an additional $1000, especially with two college tuition checks due each month.  I also know that if someone wants to charge me $1000 for something, I perk right up to make sure I need it, I received what I thought I was getting, and that the product performs as expected once I did receive it.  Unfortunately, not everyone seems to understand the value of $1000.  Click here to read the full article.

Government Affairs Action Alerts.
 You get them from time to time, and they are important.  You see them in your inbox from NAR, you get them from NCAR, and sometimes you even get them from me at the WSRAR!  

Periodically, you will see an important Government Affairs Action Alert that contains timely information as it pertains to legislative issues. These emails will sometimes contain:

•    Details on REALTOR® positions on issues and how they are being advocated for
•    Notifications of meetings with elected officials
•    Call To Action notifications (Example: Please call your Senators office to have him support a certain bill)
•    Regular legislative updates (Example: Legislation impacting our industry will be voted on tomorrow at 10am)
•    Which elected officials need to be contacted and why they are important

When these Action Alerts come to your inbox, I ask that you take a few moments to look them over.  It is important for you to be involved, and we try to make the “Asks” as easy as possible for you since we know how busy you are.   If you ever have a question on what the issue is in a Government Affairs Alert or what it is you need to do, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Thank you for your support and attention!
