More than 2,000 REALTORS® came to the Texas Capitol on Tuesday for the 2015 Texas REALTOR® Hill Visits. They participated in 183 meetings with legislators, discussing policy issues such as property-tax relief, transportation funding, and consumer-friendly reform to the property-appraisal process.

The Hill Visits are an opportunity for legislators to hear about issues directly from their constituents and see firsthand that Texas REALTORS® are dedicated to protecting the rights of private-property owners in the state.

2015 TAR Chairman Scott Kesner appreciates the time Texas REALTORS® take from their day-to-day business to attend this event, as well as the legislators who listen. “We have great respect for our elected officials and appreciate the work they do to ensure Texas remains a great place to buy, sell, and own real estate,” Kesner says.
