Washington Learns "That's Who We R!"

May 23, 2019

Over 11,000 REALTORS® from across the country gathered in Washington, DC for the 2019 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo. This meeting gives REALTORS® the opportunity to hear from industry leaders, exchange ideas and best practices, but more importantly to let members of Congress know "Who We R!"

DeAnn Golden, President of the Atlanta REALTORS® Association, led a delegation of local members in a series of meetings and discussions with Georgia's members of Congress and both U.S. Senators. Issues discussed on Capitol Hill included Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform, expanding Fair Housing protections, infrastructure improvements and meaningful flood insurance reform.

One of the biggest surprises was a visit by President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump addressed a packed crowd of REALTORS® for almost an hour. He discussed issues like HUD, GSE reform, opportunity zones and flood insurance; all issues important to REALTORS®. To view the President's speech, click here.
