Open Letter to #NAREE17
Greetings, members of the National Association of Real Estate Editors
As a longtime real estate consumer advocate and industry critic, look forward to your live tweets and event coverage during and after #NAREE17 this week in Denver. For those editors who invite story ideas, hope the image above or issues in the link below get your attention (or even attract interest from investigative journalists outside real estate):

At a minimum, invite #NAREE members, real estate regulators and others to compare CRE’s list of leading issues to those held by consumer advocates. Regrettably, real estate continues to be the “Sleeping Giant of Consumer Movement,” but after a decade of being off the radar screen, maybe that’s about to change:
Will Wall St cause ConsumerAdvocates to revisit #RealEstate Cartel?

If you are not interested in the story ideas but know anyone — including journalism students — who might be, please forward this Open Letter as well as contact information. Glad to make referrals to subject experts including attorneys and at least one former regulator who can provide their perspectives on a range of issues including the mispresentation documented above.
