“We have the attention of the Oval Office"
said John Smaby, President, National Association of REALTORS

President Donald J Trump spoke before an enthusiastic crowd of 2,000 REALTORS® Friday who packed a Marriott Wardman Park hotel ballroom in Washington, D.C., during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo.  A ttendees who didn’t get into the ballroom were directed to overflow rooms or to watch the event via a live stream.
“I’m here today because REALTORS play a special role in the economy,” Trump said. From the 20% pass-through tax deduction for independent contractors to the promise of opportunity zones to revitalize struggling communities, President Donald Trump extolled the impact of an array of achievements that have benefited real estate practitioners. 
“Deregulation may be the biggest of our successes over the past two-and-a-half years—maybe bigger than the tax cuts,” Trump said during the speech, which ran a little over an hour. “There’s truly never been a better time, in my opinion, to build or break ground in America,” he said. Read More
