Realtors® from across the country converged in Washington, D.C. last week during the National Association of Realtors® 2012 Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, and Eddie Brown, of Fonville Morisey Realty/A Long & Foster Company, was among them. Brown also joined an estimated 15,000 Realtors® and members of Congress at the Washington Monument to rally on behalf of homeowners, real estate investors and those who aspire to homeownership.
Eddie had this to say about the event -
“As the leading advocate for homeownership, Realtors® want to ensure that people who want to own a home or invest in real estate, and can responsibly afford to do so, will continue to have the opportunity to do that. The rally was an important event that let the nation know that homeownership impacts families, communities, small businesses and the nation’s economy in a very meaningful way. It’s an investment in our collective futures and must be preserved.”
While he was in Washington, Brown met with Senators Hagan and Burr, and with Congressmen Miller and Priceon Capitol Hill, to address critical issues related to today’s housing market, particularly the need to streamline short sales, preserve tax benefits for homeownership. Brown also urged the Senators and Congressmen to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program, which is set to expire on May 31.
“We gathered on Capitol Hill to meet with legislators and press upon them the value of homeownership for all Americans,” said Brown. “It is imperative that we continue to communicate to our local representatives that homeownership matters to individuals, families, communities and our nation’s economy.”
Brown also explored the latest industry innovations and saw how new products are transforming the real estate business. He is the VP and Sales Manager of Fonville Morisey Realty’s Brier Creek office.
Way to go, Eddie! Thanks for representing the Fonville Morisey family so well.
