Governor Invites Virginia REALTORS® to Participate in Bill Signing
March 9, 2023
On March 3rd, Governor Glenn Youngkin signed a universal licensure bill into law that will make it easier for individuals who require a license through DPOR to work in Virginia. This means that people looking to move to Virginia will have decreased barriers to entry regarding job credentialing. The ability to get licensed to work in Virginia means that your current and future clients are likely to have an easier time making the decision to move to Virginia and purchase a home.
The bill passed the General Assembly with unanimous support and is the first major piece of 2023 legislation Youngkin has spotlighted with a formal bill-signing ceremony. Among the select few community members and businesses invited to attend the signing were Virginia REALTORS® 2023 Treasurer, Curt Reichstetter, and VAR member Sarah Bice.
Reichstetter says, “It was an honor to represent the Virginia REALTORS® in Governor Youngkin’s singing of the Universal Licensure Bill. This law will make it easier for many individuals moving to Virginia to obtain a license to work here. With a significant shortage of workers in the commonwealth, making it easier for those wishing to move and work in Virginia is crucial to filling these needed vacancies. REALTORS® from other states should find the transfer of licenses an easier and less-painful process.”
