Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3192, Homebuyers Assistance Act October 7, 2015
Andy Barr, R-KY
"Mr. Speaker, this makes the home buying process more difficult for consumers. But at the end of the day, even if we are going to go forward with this new, complicated regulation, 1,800 pages or so, at least—at least—give the participants—the closing attorneys, the title insurance agents, the Realtors, the advocates for the home buyers, and the advocates for the consumers—let them have a brief period of time where they can get up to speed with the complexity of this rule so that innocent mistakes are not punished and that home buyers are not punished."
Homebuyers Assistance Act October 7, 2015
Frank Guinta, R-NH
"I met with New Hampshire bankers, credit unions, and Realtors in September. They shared their concerns about what could happen if, misinterpreting the new rules, they made an unfortunate or unintentional error."
Honoring Preet Didbal September 24, 2015
John Garamendi, D-CA
"Whereas, Preet is also actively involved with local Runs to support Girls on the Run, Run Drugs out of Town, Hands of Hope Run for the Homeless, and Breast Cancer and Alzheimer’s Research. She also collects backpacks for Western Farm Workers families every fall and volunteers for Back to School shopping with the Sutter-Yuba Association of Realtors to support low-income families and children. Preet’s personal devotion rests in a desire to give back to the community that has given her so much."
Celebrating The Life Of Ebby Halliday Acers September 11, 2015

The company was involved in approximately 19,200 real estate transactions with 1,700 sales associates in 2014. On top of Ebby’s business accomplishments, she was very involved in the community. She was a devoted volunteer, educator, supporter of foster children, and wonderful leader."
