Close to 3,000 REALTORS® converged in Austin on March 26 to advocate for private property rights and the real estate industry during REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol.

REALTORS® from every region of Texas had appointments with all 181 members of the Texas Legislature.

Every meeting was an opportunity to educate lawmakers on our legislative priorities, such as property tax and school finance reform, ending forced municipal annexation, and supporting disaster relief and response.

Check out the #RealtorDay hashtag on Twitter and Instagram to see hundreds of posts from the day, including from lawmakers themselves sharing how much they appreciate visiting with REALTORS® from their districts.

Your association was also honored with resolutions in the Senate and House, officially recognizing March 26, 2019, as REALTOR® Day at the Texas Capitol and congratulating the association on our upcoming 100th anniversary in 2020.

This grassroots event organized every legislative session is the cornerstone of Texas REALTORS® advocacy … and your participation helps ensure we protect your industry.
