TEXAS REALTORS WORKING FOR YOU
May 10, 2011
Did you know that Texas REALTORS® work for you all year long?
Members of the Texas Association of REALTORS® work with your local, county,
and state lawmakers to ensure Texas remains a "homeowner friendly" state.
By reviewing proposed new laws in Texas, analyzing the proposals, and working to educate legislators on the effects of the proposals on individual home buyers and sellers, Texas REALTORS® are working for you and believe most buyers and sellers would rather keep their money in their pockets.
Texas REALTORS® are always watching out for Texas homeowners. They realize that buying and selling a home is a major decision for most people. They also believe that only people who are highly qualified and knowledgeable in their craft should practice real estate sales. That's why Texas REALTORS® are supporting a bill in the Texas Legislature to increase the requirements for more experience before granting a broker's license, as well as, requiring more continuing education concerning a broker's responsibility. The proposed bill protects consumers by ensuring that real estate brokers are better prepared to train and take responsibility for the sales agents working for them.
Texas REALTORS® are working to improve oversight of homeowners associations. They support laws to ensure HOA operations are transparent and consumer-friendly. Texas REALTORS® believe "your" home is "your" castle and they are in Austin fighting to protect your homeowner rights.
In April, more than 2,000 Texas REALTORS® stormed the Capitol in Austin to meet with state senators and representatives and presented the case for homeowner rights all across Texas - a voice for ALL homeowners, not just those who were buying or selling houses.
Your Texas REALTORS® are always working for you.
