An exterior shot of the Texas Capitol

03/03/2017 | Author: Governmental Affairs Staff

Texas real estate had one of the most successful legislative sessions ever in 2015 in part because thousands of Texas REALTORS® participated in REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol … and we’re doing it again on April 4.

This day-long event is the most important grassroots political event of the year. Here’s why you should make the trip.

You'll make a real difference 
Showing up at the Capitol demonstrates to lawmakers that REALTORS® are serious about supporting private-property rights and ensuring Texas remains a great place to buy, sell, lease, and own real estate.

You’ll join Texas REALTORS® from your home district to discuss the latest issues affecting your industry with lawmakers and their staff.

You’re on the agenda … and at the table
The House and Senate will issue proclamations honoring REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol shortly after they convene.

An added perk many attendees enjoy is the catered barbecue lunch at the Texas Association of REALTORS® headquarters, conveniently located across the street from the Capitol.

Ready to attend? 
Visit texasrealestate.com/realtorday for details, but be sure to contact your local association to add your name to the list and find out how they’re getting to Austin. Many local associations charter buses to make the trip.
