Today was a busy day with thousands of REALTORS® from across the nation converging on Capitol Hill. The morning started with a great message from Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of HUD. Then, I attended my Housing Opportunity Committee meeting and learned about many great programs that are happening across the country. Maryland REALTORS® presented their financial literacy program. They are providing their members with tools to educate homebuyers on mortgages, credit basics, down payment assistance and more. I received a “random act of kindness” card from President Elizabeth Mendenhall and was tasked with passing it along.
From there, I joined other Missouri REALTORS® at a luncheon. Both of our senators joined us and spoke at lunch. They both were generally supportive of our issues. After lunch, we went to Capitol Hill and visited with our congressmen and women. The most exciting part of the day was when I saw Congresswoman Ann Wagner’s sign that said, “Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History.”
