Realtor® Advocacy Month  Week 1.jpeg

Michigan Realtors® Travel to Capitol Hill Next Week

The National Association of Realtors® is holding their annual meetings on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. next week during the Realtors® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo (May 15-20, 2017). These meetings provide an opportunity for members to meet with their legislators on the federal level to discuss issues important to the real estate industry in Michigan and across the country.

Michigan Congressional Hill visits are currently scheduled for next week. To find out when the meeting with your member of Congress is taking place, please click here. This page will be updated with additional information for Michigan Realtors® attendees in the coming days, so check back often! (Attendees are also encouraged to print the web page as an excellent resource onsite.)

While Michigan Realtors® members continue to cultivate excellent working relationships with elected officials on the federal level in Washington D.C. next week, it is equally important to foster relationships with local and state elected officials who are pro-Realtor® party. It is vital to our industry to elect and retain those who support our efforts, and the first step in doing that is to be registered to vote! The link below provides all of the necessary information on how to register to vote in your area.

Legal Lines – Question of the Month
-
We are pleased to partner with McClelland & Anderson to feature a different question from our legal hotline in each issue of E-news.

QUESTION:
I am a buyer’s agent. My clients had their attorney review the offer after I wrote it but before it was presented to the sellers. The lawyer is asking for many changes to the offer which, in my opinion, will make it unacceptable to the sellers. How should I advise my buyer-clients?

ANSWER:
Do not ever advise a client to ignore the advice of counsel, even if the advice of counsel seems like bad advice.
