REALTORS® Testify to Protect the Real Estate Guaranty Fund
The DC Council recently conducted its annual oversight hearing on the DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. REALTORS® used the hearing as an opportunity to let the Council know the importance of the Real Estate Guaranty and Education Fund.
The Guaranty Fund is a vital tool for consumers who have been wronged in a real estate transaction. Unfortunately, the Guaranty Fund has been raided in years past, putting in jeopardy a valuable consumer protection tool.
This year, REALTORS® want to ensure the Fu
nd is a priority for the District Government. The DC Association of REALTORS® - represented by DCAR President Dianah Shaw and Public Policy Chair Deirdre Brown, see in the photo prepping their testimony - testified in front of the DC Council and is sending the same message to the Executive Office of the Mayor.
By providing a voice for consumers, REALTORS® are making safety in real estate transactions a priority.
