McAllen Realtors attend meetings in Washington, D.C.

Special to The Monitor

The Monitor

Realtors from across the nation visited Washington, D.C., from May 11 to 16 to attend the Realtors Legislative Meetings Trade Expo. This is where National Association of Realtors members take an active role to advance the real estate industry, public policy and the association.

Realtors come to Washington, D.C., for special issues forums, committee meetings, legislative activities and the industry trade show. The Greater McAllen Association of Realtors was represented by members Roberto Valadez Jr., board president; Adrian Aron Arriaga, board president elect; and Charles Marina, federal political coordinator for NAR, as well as, Lee Jinks, association executive. Visits were made to Rep. Rubén Hinojosa, Sen. John Corwin and congressmen from our neighboring areas, along with other members of the legislature and Realtors from across the United States.

You can visit the National Association of Realtors website at ( to learn about all the topics and discussions covered at the expo. If you have any questions, you may contact the Greater McAllen Association of Realtors, 509 Nolana Ave. in McAllen.
