The Hill visits were “monumental” for me this year. This is only my 2nd REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo and WOW, what an exciting meeting this has been so far. The meetings with our Connecticut Senator and Representatives were worth the travel into D.C. This year, I was fortunate to be tasked with sharing one of the talking points with my Congressman. I used the opportunity to get his autograph which he so graciously gave me. Thanks Joe Courtney!!!
I must admit, I was extremely nervous as I have seen this lobbying done on the state level by various state leaders, but didn’t expect to be “that guy” that does the talking to the politicians. I stewed over this all day leading up to the visit. What would I say? How will I say it? Will I mess up? Will I faint? Then……..the moment came and voila…..it was so easy. I just spoke from the heart, talking about FHA and the secondary market. Because I live and breathe this stuff everyday, turns out I had no problem speaking at all. If I can do it, so can you. So go ahead, make your voice heard, make a difference and GO TO HILL!
