WISCONSIN POLICY FORUM 2021 PROPERTY VALUES & TAXES TOOL
The WPF has published its annual analysis of property values and taxes in the 7-county Southeastern Wisconsin region. This web tool explores key trends in the region’s economic health, the cost borne by taxpayers, and the finances of its local governments.

RPAC SUCCESS UPDATE
Rights restored for Wisconsin waterfront property owners
 
The WRA successfully advocated for your right to place a pier in Wisconsin. And last month, Gov. Tony Evers signed into law AB 37/SB 46, legislation that will return 140 years of riparian rights to waterfront property owners across the state.

WELCOME NEW GMAR RECEPTIONIST
As we say good-bye to Alberta and wish her a happy retirement, we are excited to welcome the newest member of the GMAR Team, Mary Xiong. Mary will be the new face at the front desk of the GMAR office. She is excited to get to know our members and be the first point of contact for callers and office visitors. If you see her around please give her a warm welcome and be patient as she learns the ropes around here!
ARE YOU A DIRECT GIVER?
Even though it is a much quieter election year than 2020, it is still as important to support elected officials who support the real estate industry. 
 
Please consider making a contribution to the Direct Giver Program, which is a unique tool you have as a REALTOR® in Wisconsin, and you can use it to support PRO-REALTOR® elected officials and candidates at all levels of government.

Contact Marne Stuck if you have any questions.
