Our very own Andrea Lacroix and Betty Slatko attended Realtor® Day on the Hill yesterday! It was a beautiful day in Boston and the annual event was well attended by Realtors®. Andrea and Betty met with Representative Brad Hill and Senator Bruce Tarr. Martha Coakley was an excellent keynote speaker and Rep. Hill gave them a personal tour of the House Chambers.
Some of the topics discussed this year included mortgage relief and debt cancellation on short sales of principal homes, the need for copper pipe theft prevention and an abandoned property registry, an increase in hours for continuing education for realtors and the negative impact of a room occupancy tax for all home owners.
This is an important event held every year and a tremendous opportunity to let legislators know the opinions and concerns facing the real estate industry and homeowners, something we are very passionate about.
