WILMINGTON, N.C. (May 4, 2015) – Last Tuesday, the Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors (WRAR) joined trade associations, organizations, and local governments from North Carolina in supporting the Coastal Resources Commission’s (CRC) approval to create a Development Line as an alternative to the current Static Line.
Currently, beach development is dictated by the Static Line, which has been established as an immovable line in the sand by CRC. “The problem with the Static Line is that it is a ‘one size fits all’ approach,” said Shane Johnson from WRAR’s Governmental Affairs office.

Greensboro, N.C. (March 27, 2015) – The North Carolina Association of Realtors® President Tony Smith applauded Sen. Mike Lee (New Hanover) for filing legislation to end consent to rate letters from property insurers. Sen. Lee’s bill would close the legal loophole that forces homeowners to pay higher premiums or risk cancellation of their policy.
“Realtors® believe that homeowners insurance must be available and affordable for working families,” said Smith. “We appreciate the efforts of Senators and Representatives who have sponsored bills that bring transparency and fairness to the rate-making process. Sen. Lee’s bill SB 683 would provide another powerful and necessary protection for homeowners.”
