Empowering Excellence: Advocating for Private Property Rights

Sponsored Content provided by Insights On - ,

The role of the local REALTOR® Association takes on many facets. From our premiere continuing education to volunteer leadership growth opportunities, Cape Fear REALTORS® proudly supports and promotes the role of the local REALTOR®. Among the many roles Cape Fear REALTORS’® staff and volunteers hold in our community, one of our greatest assets to the Cape Fear region is our advocacy efforts. We work to foster a sound and dynamic real estate market that creates vibrant communities in which we live and work.

My name is Amanda Parmer, and I am the 2024 President of Cape Fear REALTORS®. During my year in this leadership role, I desire to empower excellence in our local REALTOR® community. At Cape Fear REALTORS®, we believe that leadership is not just a position but a relentless pursuit of excellence and advocacy. Empowering and fostering the growth of the volunteer leader is pivotal in championing the role of real estate within our community.

The hard work of advocacy is noticed by few but experienced by many. As a REALTOR® Association, our priority is simple: protect the rights of private property owners in our community. As part of the National Association of REALTORS®, we follow their expertise to advocate for federal issues affecting the rights of private property owners. There are two major 2024 REALTOR® Legislative Priorities. The first priority is to update America’s tax law to increase access to homeownership. Addressing housing affordability starts with adding to the nation’s severely limited inventory. The second priority is to ensure equal access to professional representation and support fair housing. Bound by a Code of Ethics, REALTORS® are committed to upholding fair housing laws and removing barriers to homeownership.

Along with the priorities from the national level, Cape Fear REALTORS® has been involved in state and local legislation to safeguard private property rights. Most recently, representatives of Cape Fear REALTORS® had the opportunity to speak with Representative David Rouzer to ensure the REALTOR® voice was heard concerning H.R. 524. This bill secures a permanent fix by allowing Wrightsville, Carolina, and Kure Beach to use their traditional borrow sites for beach nourishment. Senator Budd stated, “Beach nourishment projects are critical protections for homeowners and businesses against natural erosion and powerful storms.”

Cape Fear REALTORS® stands by our commitment to empower excellence in our real estate community. We believe this commitment begins with advocacy. We look forward to making remarkable strides this year that will build upon the strong foundation of the REALTOR® commitment to protect private property rights today and into the future.
