Last week I had the pleasure of being one of the 125 people representing the CCIM Institute at the Capitol Hill visits in Washington DC. My group visited at the offices both US Senators from Nebraska and all three US Congressmen that represent the State of Nebraska. We carried a message asking for their support of several proposals that we believe will help the state of commercial real estate owners throughout the country and yet will not cost the taxpayers any money. All of the Senators, Congressmen and their staff seemed very interested in our message and thanked us for taking the time to visit. It was an excellent opportunity to participate in the process of government and I was thankful to have the chance.
