NAR Midyear Legislative Meeting Update

Services for Real Estate Pros with Columbia Board of REALTORS®

NAR just wrapped up it's best-ever Midyear Legislative Meetings in Washington, D.C. Not only did they raise the "Voice for Real Estate" on a number of key political issues, but they also tackled many important business and association issues. Here are some of the hottest news and special highlights on three special member videos:

· First, by far the most popular event at this year's meetings was the interview with industry legend, Ebby Halliday, Chairman of the Board of Ebby Halliday REALTORS® in Dallas, Texas. At 97 years old, Ebby is more energetic than most REALTORS® half her age. See how Ebby has outperformed the competition for more than 60 years - in every kind of market.

· Second, the housing market was another hot topic of conversation at the meetings. Everyone wants to know when we are going to see a recovery. Watch this video to see NAR's Chief Economist Lawrence Yun share his insights with 2008 President-Elect Charles McMillan, and visit the Research section of for other commentaries and valuable insights from our expert staff.

· Finally, many REALTORS® who traveled to Washington, D.C., also wanted to know what® has been up to lately. In the latest NAR President's Podcast, NAR Chief Executive Officer Dale Stinton was asked to give us a sneak preview of the upgrades that will be available to all REALTORS® this July.
