“Many different messages are surfacing today on the state of the Real Estate market. There remains a challenge to create a unified and concise message. Real Estate is the #1 topic in the media right now and Associations will need to play a key role in meeting the challenges to provide relevant information that will add value, such as how home ownership impacts local communities. This adds value to the REALTOR.” said Mr. Grooms.
