Local Membership Benefits
Your Walton Barrow Metro Board of REALTORS® Membership Benefits
We stay on top of the issues affecting the real estate industry and the rights of property owners. Our staff and Vice President of Governmental Affairs works closely with local, state, and national leaders to make sure new and existing laws and ordinances do not adversely affect your business or private property rights. Throughout the year, we host legislative forums to keep our members informed on the important real estate trends and issues facing our industry on a local, state, and national level.
