Allen signs in front of Lacey Real Estate on Rt. 250 in Fishersville, Virginia.
On Monday, George Allen received the endorsement of the Virginia Association of Realtors (VAR), the business advocacy organization representing nearly 30,000 real estate industry professionals.
At an endorsement event held at the Glen Allen headquarters of the Virginia Association of Realtors, George Allen participated in a roundtable discussion with Realtor members to hear firsthand their experiences in the housing market and what they are hearing and seeing in neighborhoods throughout Virginia. Allen received the formal endorsement from VAR President Trish Szego of Fairfax, VAR President-Elect Mary Dykstra of Roanoke, VAR Vice President Brad Boland of Reston, and Real Estate Politics and Advocacy (RPAC) Chairman Tom Innes of Richmond.
Realtors’ top concerns include the mortgage interest deduction, Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, qualified residential mortgages, and the Federal Housing Administration.
Allen continued, "For current and future homeowners, the mortgage interest deduction is a key provision for helping hard-working Americans fulfill their dream of home ownership, and I will work to ensure that this tax relief remains. Virginia Realtors know from my record that I am committed to meeting with Realtors regularly because I value their insight, especially as Washington considers much-needed housing reforms. I’m grateful for Virginia Realtors’ support, and I look forward to working with them for a healthier economy and safe, prospering neighborhoods.”
