Re:NAR meets with government and industry leaders to address critical issues.

Dear Fellow REALTOR®,

I have spent the past week in Washington, D.C., in some of the most important meetings to date with top government and industry leaders.

In a special audio edition of my President™s Podcast, I provide details on how NAR is addressing the proposed limitations on the mortgage interest deduction, problems with short sales and REO sales, and the Federal Reserve™s latest announcement that it will purchase more agency mortgage-backed securities.

Please take just a few minutes to listen to the podcast, and forward the link to your colleagues.

Rest assured that NAR continues to work harder than ever, both in the public arena and behind the scenes in Washington, D.C., to stabilize the housing market and address legislative and regulatory issues that impact you.

I will continue to provide you with regular updates on our progress. IIn the meantime, please visit the Government Affairs page on for more details on our efforts and check the President™s Report for additional updates from your 2009 Leadership Team.
