So for the last 15 years the person you are waiving the requirements for has been acting as a Broker with out the proper license? This bill is a slap in the face to properly licensed Real Estate Brokers in the state of Virginia. With our current real estate market, you want to lessen requirements for Real Estate Brokers? I am a Broker and this is an insult to me and every other licensed Broker in the State.

I cannot understand how the public can be BETTER sreved by this proposed bill. Must be set up for one Broker in his district. I hope it does not pass.
