While you are safely at home, snug in your beds sleeping… or like me, blogging… there are men and women out in the cold fighting for your rights, your homeowner rights. Faster than a speeding bullet… more powerful than a locomotive… and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound ESPECIALLY when those buildings are condos with mortgage interest deductions! These would be the real estate agents of Texas who comprise TREPAC. TREPAC fights for homeowner’s rights. Like, who do you think is out there protecting that mortgage interest deduction and preventing the transfer tax on real estate that keeps looming over us? The Super-Hero’s of TREPAC.
And at last week’s March 6 auction, auction Chair Kevin Caskey of Dallas City Center was a superhero’s superhero. Kevin and the Dallas City committee team raised $22,767, the most dough ever, for TREPAC at that auction. The auction was started many years ago with the male agents baking, and the female agents would (force themselves to) buy those baked goods. This year, the auction went back to those baking roots with a Broker Bake Off where the attendees voted for the best baked presentation. The Golden Spoon trophy will be awarded at the next East Dallas MLS Meeting… and I totally know who won! There were also, for the first time, tons of sporting event tickets (Mavs, Rangers, Stars), lake houses, vacation homes, bed & breakfasts, a dive trip to Honduras, and tons of gift cards to buy.
And buy people did. Buy Buy baby!
That’s $27,767 more dollars to protect homeowner’s rights and keep Texas housing as healthy as ever. Thanks all to the Superheros!
