Your source for Government Affairs Insight from NC REALTORS®

In this edition of the REALTOR® Advocate, we will spend some time discussing this session’s legislative vetoes and overrides, how the November elections are shaping up, and recent successful NC REALTORS® PAC fundraising events across the state. We are introducing the #NCREALTORSVote2018 section which will be your one-stop shop for information about the November elections. More new sections will be introduced in future editions.

We want to hear from you! What do you like about the REALTOR® Advocate? And what would you like for us to do differently?

In the last edition, we focused on the six proposed constitutional amendments which were approved by the General Assembly this year and which will appear on the November ballot. Additional analysis of these proposals will be included in the new #NCREALTORSVote2018 section over the coming editions.

We are taking a week off while we complete our wrap-up of the 2017-2018 legislative session. Make sure you rejoin us on August 31 for the full story!
