WASHINGTON, D.C.–Sure, the nation’s capital has a seemingly inexhaustible supply of museums and monuments. But it’s the Hill that draws many attendees to the National Association of Realtors’ midyear conference each year. That’s Capitol Hill–a place where decisions are contemplated, made and sometimes changed.

With the weight of more than 1 million Realtors, the association has a loud voice on legislative matters. And when Realtors make their annual pilgrimages to lobby their legislators on the Hill each year, they are determined to be heard.
