Augusta area Realtors will join hundreds of their peers today at a Rally for Homeownership on the steps of the Georgia Capitol.
The rally is part of the Georgia Realtors 2013 Inaugural Meeting, a four-day conference that focuses on education and networking for Realtors. Gov. Nathan Deal is scheduled to speak.
Around 700 people are expected to attend the rally.
“Housing plays an essential role in the economic recovery of Georgia,” said Lili Youngblood, the 2013 president of the Greater Augusta Association of Realtors. “We wanted to show our legislators and elected officials that Realtors are here to support the continued recovery of the housing market and that we’re keeping an eye on threats that would hinder its recovery.”
The Georgia Association of Realtors is a voluntary professional association with more than 26,000 licensed real estate brokers and salespeople.
