Hearing from Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis on Capitol Hill
REALTORS® from Charlotte joined thousands of their colleagues from North Carolina and across the country last week to bring the message of homeownership to Capitol Hill during the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR)’s annual Legislative Meetings.
At a breakfast hosted by the North Carolina Association of REALTORS® (NCAR), we joined members from across our state to hear from U.S. Senators Richard Burr (R) and Thom Tills (R),who appeared together to make remarks and answer questions about their positions on key housing issues.
Later in the day, we met separately with Representatives Alma Adams (D), Richard Hudson (R), and Robert Pittenger (R) in their Capitol Hill offices.

Realtors® discussed a number of issues critical to the housing industry, including the importance of preserving the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID) and 1031 Exchanges in the federal tax code, providing private Flood Insurance options, and expanding the FHA’s condominium loan and other housing financing programs.
REBIC and the Charlotte Regional REALTOR® Association (CRRA) will continue to engage our federal legislators on these critical issues in the months to come. Thanks to all our Realtors® who took the time to join us last week to advocate for North Carolina homeowners in our nation’s capitol!
