Greater Tyler Association of REALTORS® was among the 2,000 Texas REALTORS® who participated in the 2013 Legislative Hill Visits at the Texas Capitol. The event featured real estate professionals from all parts of Texas meeting with lawmakers from their home districts.
During the meetings, participants advocated for consumer-protection provisions in the property-tax loan industry, mortgage lending and the property-appraisal process. The theme of the day, however, was the importance of investing in the state’s infrastructure.
“Texas is experiencing tremendous population growth. We believe planning for that growth, particularly with regard to transportation and water infrastructure, is the best way to ensure the Texas economy remains strong,” said Shad Bogany, 2013 chairman of the Texas Association of REALTORS®.
Members of the Greater Tyler Association of REALTORS® met with State Senator Kevin Eltife and State Representative Matt Schaefer’s assistant.
