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.

This was my first Hill visit. loved everything about it.  TAR and Texas Realtors made a great impact.

It was a wonderful day and we got to visit with our representatives as well as to spend some time at the Capitol.  Texas Association of Realtors, as always, had a delicious BBQ lunch and we got to meet some Realtors from around the State. It was a great time and we learned about some new things happening in our District and around the State. I recommend it to Texas Realtors.  It really makes a statement to our Texas Legislature.

This is the first one I have missed.  Just couldn’t handle all the walking
and standing.  I really did miss going, but still keep in touch with our representatives and senators.

Great idea, though it was a pity that as many as we went from Laredo Association of REALTORS, we did not get to see any of our representatives, like Tracy King, Judith Zaffirini, Ryan Guillen, or Richard P. Raymond.
