The Missouri Association of Realtors will be holding their annual “blitz” on Missouri legislators on Wednesday, January 20, 2009 before starting their meetings.
At these blitzes, realtor after realtor goes from legislator to legislator to explain why they need legislation to control you…for you are interfering with their business.
You know nothing about homes…and you, like everyone else, need only a business card to call yourself a home inspector and none of your training or experience means anything. They want a law like Kansas has, with a Realtor on the board.
This time, there will be a group of Missouri inspectors (and Kansas guys who work in Missouri) who will be gathering in Jefferson City on January 14, 2009.
What we will be doing is visiting legislator after legislator with facts that I will not share in this post (for obvious reasons) but that will dilute the tears and horror stories of lost commissions that the Missouri Association of Realtors will be presenting the following week.
This is our first opportunity to make a signficant impression.
We will gather in the late morning, have a brief strategy meeting as we meet with each other, and then we will walk the halls of congress as a group.
Once we have arranged the meeting place, we will advise as to the exact time and place. Please email me with your commitment to attend as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org .
