Out of an abundance of caution and care for membership and staff, the SRA office will be open this week, with minimal staffing.
We ask that communication with SRA be handled through phone calls and email if at all possible and paperwork be dropped off/business be conducted through the drop box on the side of the building.
All meeting that were scheduled to be held this week will be canceled and we are looking at alternative (virtual) ways to handle them if this needs to continue.
The health and wellbeing of our Association members and staff is our number one priority and as we have further updates we will communicate them out to you immediately.
We thank you in advance for your understanding, cooperation, and patience.
WRA Member Announcement
As you probably know, Gov. Tony Evers announced earlier today that he will be issuing a “stay at home” executive order on Tuesday, March 24 to help control the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). As part of this executive order, Gov. Evers will be directing all businesses to close their doors starting Tuesday unless they are identified as “essential services.” The WRA will continue to work closely with Gov. Evers’ administration to ensure that the executive order identifies real estate services (brokerage, financing, appraisal, title, construction, property management, etc.) as “essential” to Wisconsin’s families, businesses and economy. We will update you as soon as we have new information.
In the meantime, please continue to contact us if you have any questions or if we can provide you with any assistance during these uncertain times.
2020 SRA Golf Outing – June 17th, 2020 – “Lucky on the Links” (Las Vegas theme)
A Message from our SRA President:
Hello to All of My Fellow Realtors,
I would like to speak with you about RPAC, and what it means to our profession.
When I first started in the real estate business, I didn’t know what RPAC was. No one said anything about it.
In fact, RPAC is a very important part of our profession.
RPAC is the REALTORS Political Action Committee. For the past 50 years, RPAC has kept us going in real estate by helping to elect leaders who understand and appreciate the real estate profession, who are committed to keeping the American Dream alive.
Decisions that directly affect the real estate profession are constantly being made in Madison and Washington, D.C.
Under our American form of government, the candidates who are elected are the ones making laws regarding issues like property tax limits, the single-family housing shortage, the statute of limitations for filing lawsuits against REALTORS, the rental weatherization program, and the home mortgage interest deduction.
The decisions that they make will have a major impact on a person’s ability to buy a home, and on our profession.
Through RPAC, the voice of the real estate profession is heard at the national, state, and local levels.
This is why you and I need RPAC as much as RPAC needs us. It is a critically important investment in our careers as real estate professionals.
RPAC isn’t just RPAC, it really is our PAC.
For all of the aforementioned reasons, I am asking all SRA members to please join me in supporting RPAC.
Thank you for your time and serious consideration.
