CAR’s REALTOR® Day at the Capitol & Economic Summit Focused on State’s Growing Economy and Housing Needs
Thank you to all Colorado REALTORS ® who attended CAR’s Economic Summit and REALTOR® Day at the Capitol. Over 250 Colorado REALTORS® attended the two-day event. Thursday’s REALTOR® Day at the Capitol luncheon featured J.J. Ament, CEO of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation and Patti Silverstein, Chief Economist at Research Partners. Later in the day, CAR members had the opportunity to visit with members of the Colorado General Assembly at the state capitol and provide information on the real estate industry’s most pressing public policy issues. Then, heard from legislative leadership on their priorities for the 2020 legislative session.
