Agents Make a Difference at the State Capitol

Leg Day - Main 2


May 2nd, 2018
Podley associates Todd Hays, Margaret Garemore, Nick Frias, along with President Crystal Narramore, joined 2,000 Realtors® at the C.A.R.’s
46th Annual Leg Day in Sacramento. This year, agents were advocating for proactive solutions to the housing affordability crisis. After a meeting where Governor Jerry Brown spoke, the Realtors marched over to the State capitol. There, they met with elected officials, including Senator Anthony Portantino and Assemblyman Chris Holden. 


Leg Day - Todd

Todd Hays currently serves as a Director for the C.A.R., and is a representative on the Local Government Forum and the Legislative Committee. This is his sixth time attending Legislative Day. “It’s truly one of the most fulfilling things I do as a Realtor,” Todd said. “It shows, in a most powerful way, the impact each of us can make at the state level.”


Crystal Narramore, Podley Properties President and C.A.R. director also attended Leg Day and is highly active in the real estate community, most recently as a featured panelist with WomenUP! at the recent REVive! conferece. “C.A.R. is a powerful voice in Sacramento due to the participation and involvement of Realtors across the State.  Legislative Day has been an eye-opening experience for me to see the positive impact and influence C.A.R. has on the policies that affect our industry.”

Leg Day - Margaret & Nick

Margaret Garemore attended Leg Day to help advocate for potential home-buyers and owners. “As the AAR 2018 President and a CAR Director, I was honored to be among so many Realtors who were willing to step up in the fight for home ownership and private property rights at Legislative Day at the state Capitol.”


This is the first year attending Leg Day for 2017 C.A.R. Rising Star, Nick Frias. “Attending the conference and marching to the Capitol was an eye-opening experience. It was exciting to see Realtors involved in the political aspect of the business and not just selling homes, and it helped me to more fully understand the importance and power that we have as agents.”


For the past 46 years, Legislative Day remains C.A.R.’s pinnacle legislative event.  It gives California Realtors the opportunity to discuss real estate issues directly with their state legislators. Attending Legislative Day is not only a great investment an in agent’s business. It also provides the agents with an opportunity to hear from California’s political leaders and their state association’s leadership.
