Truckee Realtor, Heal thyself

Greed is good, as long as it is kept out of local government.

The dirty little secret here in Truckee is that the current level of taxes and regulation is systematically driving out middle class working families.

Local Realtors have helped this happen.

Most Realtors I know are quite aware of the connection between excessive taxes and regulation and the elimination of Truckee’s middle class working families.

They tend to view this as job security. I have a suggestion for working families, when you can’t make it here anymore and have to leave, make sure you list your home with an out of town agent.

Spreading the love in this fashion will help ease many Realtors back into the middle class so they can contemplate their past actions in local government and possibly reverse some of the damage they have done.

It’s not too late to deregulate Truckee!
