Governmental Affairs

Home building takes center stage with Spokane's top legislative representatives

Four of our region's top Washington State lawmakers had a chance to outline key work they accomplished in this recent legislative session to address the housing crisis in our area. Senate Majority Leader Andy Billig, Senator Mike Padden, Representative Marcus Riccelli, and Representative Jacquelin Maycumber all pointed to key legislation this past session they each played a role in championing.  

REALTOR® Japan Tour 2019 
Washington REALTORS® is offering a REALTOR® Japan Tour later this summer, August 31 - September 9th.  
Attendance is limited to the first 20 people who register by July 15th.   
The REALTOR® Japan Tour will let you explore international business opportunities, learn about the Japanese market, and build relationships with Japanese counterparts.  
Spokane has a Sister City relationship with Mukogawa, Japan, which is home to Mukogawa Women's University. MWU has a campus in Spokane, the Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute. 
The fully-escorted itinerary includes accommodations, tours, and more while networking with Japanese real estate professionals and your fellow REALTORS®.


2019 REALTORS® Conference & Expo 

November 8-11 
"Imagine the Possibilities" is the theme for this year's event.  
The tagline and design concept is meant to be inspirational and fun.  
It connects with San Francisco's culture and vibe - both past and present - in that the city has been (and continues to be) known for opportunity and innovation.

This is also what attendees can expect at this year's event - the opportunity to obtain innovative tools that will enhance their businesses.

IMAGINE what four days can do for you!
