Legislative Day for East Bay Realtors

Local group joins 2,100 professionals in Sacramento meetings

More than 100 Realtors and affiliate members of the Bay East Association of Realtors joined 2,100 real estate professionals from across the state in Sacramento last week as part of the California Association of Realtors' annual Legislative Day.

Each year, members of the state legislature set aside time to meet with real estate professionals in a day that brings the largest business group to Sacramento. Realtors and their affiliates meet with their individual local state Assembly and Senate representatives and also in groups to discuss issues affecting the industry, their clients and their businesses.

Highlights of the C.A.R. morning briefing at the Sacramento Convention Center included welcome remarks by Bay East member and C.A.R. President Kevin Brown and other C.A.R. officers. Governor Jerry Brown, who addressed the group, talked about the importance of Realtors and the role home ownership plays in the state economy.

C.A.R. Senior Vice President and Chief Lobbyist Alex Creel briefed Realtors on issues related to home ownership, real estate transactions and private property rights.

Bay East members also met with Senate Majority Leader Ellen Corbett (D-Alamo) and Assembly Members Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) and Bob Weickowski (D-Fremont) to discuss the status of home ownership and other real estate issues in southern and eastern Alameda County.

The Bay East Association of Realtors is a professional trade association serving more than 4,200 real estate professionals in the area.
