From RAM Government Affairs Director Lawrence Carnicelli:

The REALTORS® Association of Maui had a stellar 2017 with our advocacy program. We strengthened our relationships with our friends and we established new friendships all across the board.

We also made great headway on last year’s priorities list with successes in affordable housing, invasive species and water rights. Best of all we had, what NAR is calling, one of the best calls for action nationwide with our opposition to a bill that would have potentially affected 1,700 long-term rentals.

I would like to personally thank my entire GAC crew for their dedication and passion to serve our community. I would also like to thank all of you for the encouragement and support of the Government Affairs program and advocacy for homeownership and property rights. I look forward to a successful 2018 with your support!
