AmeriTitle helped kick the day off at the Salem Conference Center.  Several of our Escrow Officers and Marketing Representatives gathered to check in the large group of REALTORS®.  People traveled far and wide to get informed and involved in protecting the homeownership dream. Visiting with a group from Medford, they boarded a bus at 5:00 a.m. and didn't expect to return home until 10:30 p.m.  It was incredible to meet so many people who traveled a great distance because they care about these issues.


A small group gathered from the district I call home (Silverton) to visit with Representative Vic Gilliam.  Our well informed and studied, George Haight of Hallmark Properties led the discussion, highlighting the importance of the above noted bills and the potential impact on Oregon property owners.

Amanda Dalton, our Willamette Valley Shared Government Affairs Coordinator (along with the rest of the GAC committee) keeps an eagle eye on public policy matters throughout Marion, Polk, Linn and Benton counties.  Amanda has done an excellent job in this unique role and helps the industry professionals in the Willamette Valley sleep a little easier at night.

Government Affairs Committee: "Through active involvement in all levels of government, the Association strives to preserve the American dream of homeownership, protect private property rights, and protect the right to do business as an independent contractor."


"Strengthening our state's economy means protecting and investing in real estate.  The real estate industry has historically led the state out of recessionary periods, and as recently as 2008, a total of 31,750 home sales generated $34.9 billion in economic activity."  Oregon Association of REALTORS®


I am proud to be a member of this industry and involved in the protection of homeownership rights.

I was very disappointed that I couldn't make it this year. I really wanted to, but I had a cash buyer come from out of town that was only going to be in town for a few days.
