CT REIA goes to Washington, DC representing Connecticut Real Estate Investors & Apartment Owners
Over 60 National REIA leaders from across the country joined together to meet with our nation’s elected leaders! With over 50 meetings and two special presentations by Congressmen, the attendees were able to introduce National REIA’s strength in both numbers of small businesses, but also as an industry leader with extensive educational resources.
The National Real Estate Investors Association arranged a Day on the Hill for 50+ real estate investors from around the country, meeting with various legislators about the housing industry. Our primary purpose was to discuss two items: the Foreclosure Rescue Fraud Act (drafted by Senator Kohl) and the Installment Sale Proposal, which we’re hoping one of the legislators will consider and move forward with it. We were also there to show our strength in that National REIA represents over 40,000 small businesses in 41 states and to assure them that we are a resource they can rely on.
JoAnne Brissette from the CT Real Estate Investors Association (CT REIA) led one of our teams. The National REIA lobbyists made arrangements for each team to meet with representatives from their respective states. JoAnne Brissette, past lobbyist and a seasoned investor/apartment owner, continues to represent CT Investors and Apartment Owners on local issues.
