It is a political action day, a day that brings members of the Realtor® community from all across Massachusetts (by the busload!) to Boston, meeting at the State House in Beacon Hill, presenting a united front and acting as "the voice of real estate" to advocate on behalf of homeowner rights and concerns.
The 2014 Legislative issues that the Massachusetts Association of Realtors® are currently showing support for are the issues of Copper Pipe Theft Prevention, Flood Insurance Reform, Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief, Appraisal Management Regulation, and Debt Management Services Regulation while opposition is being shown to Room Occupancy Taxes and Land Use Reform, as drafted.
The morning program began with breakfast in the Great Hall followed by the Keynote Address by House Speaker Bob DeLeo. Opportunity was then presented for individual meetings with local legislators and plenty of photos were taken to memorialize the day. Brian Molisse who is the Owner/Broker of Molisse Realty Group and President-Elect to the Plymouth and South Shore Association of Realtors is a regular attendee at Realtor Day on Beacon Hill and joining him this year from Molisse Realty Group were Realtors® Trish Pierce, Lenny Rowe, Gina Michini, and Ed Ford.
