A Critical Moment in Our CRE Community

Legislative and regulatory threats to commercial real estate in Washington state are growing. Rent control, split roll property tax, and real estate excise tax increases are significant challenges we face in upcoming legislative sessions.

The long-term success of CRE depends on establishing a well of financial resources to support continuity in advocacy. In an environment of tax-focused politicians, the CRE community cannot afford to be unprepared for 2023.
