Great American Realtor Days

The odometer on my car indicates I've been racking up the miles in 2010. Expert witness assignments accounted for two trips to West Palm Beach and three to Jacksonville. Two weeks ago, it was a drive to the state capital, Tallahassee, to provide testimony in support of HB 303 - Regulation of Real Estate Appraisers and Appraisal Management Companies. Another trip to Tallahassee is in order.

Early tomorrow, I'll make the 260+ mile trek up yonder for Great American Realtor Days. On Wednesday morning, it will be time to attend the Florida Senate Committee on Regulated Industries meeting. S1552 and S2210, both addressing the Regulation of Appraisal Management Companies in Florida, will be heard by the committee.

The Florida Association of Realtors has identified the Regulation of Appraisal Management Companies as a legislative priority this year. Take a look at their talking points. It's nice to know I will not be the only one speaking to legislators in favor of this effort.
