Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Future Forum March 25, 2015
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"It is interesting. I hear these kinds of stories not just from those who are in repayment, I hear them from Realtors who have been in the business two, three, or four decades. They will say to me: Brendan, I can’t tell you what a difference it is today. Back when I was starting out, I would sell so many homes to younger people, 24, 25, 26. Now I don’t have one customer in their twenties. Why? Because the student loan payments are taking that up."
Honoring Joseph B. Houlihan March 13, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"As the Managing Partner of the Residential Sales Group at Houlihan & O’Malley Real Estate Services in Bronxville, Joe has had tremendous success. His work has been recognized by the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, where he won the Diamond Award for sales over $15,000,000, while also receiving the Westchester County Five Star Real Estate Agent Award on several occasions."
Honoring Susan Goldy February 2, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Susan’s work in Riverdale began in earnest in 1981 when she established her own agency, Susan E Goldy Inc., which specialized in the sale and rental of residential property. Her company immediately earned high marks for its professionalism, courtesy, integrity and reliability. As Susan’s agency grew she began to enhance her involvement in other real estate related ventures, including the Bronx Manhattan North Association of Realtors, an organization which she served as President of in 1995 and 1996."
Insurance Capital Standards Clarification Act Of 2014 September 19, 2014
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"I requested that the National Association of Independent Land Title Agents be invited to testify. I have heard concerns directly from title agents in my state that some referral sources ask to share ownership of their business. Since title insurance is based on referrals, when realtors, homebuilders and mortgage brokers refuse to provide referrals to a title agent firm, the firm may not be able to survive financially. Unfortunately, these independent unaffiliated title agents were not invited to testify nor was there another hearing on the bill."
Legislative Session September 16, 2014
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"It is not just for those people who are affected because of their own student loans; this has a ripple effect through our economy. I met with a group of realtors over the summer, and one of the things they talked about was how they are seeing first-time home buyers delay buying a home because of the cost of student loans."
