Avison Young To Hold Fourth Annual Global Day Of Giving

Avison Young Adds Four New Las Vegas HiresMark Rose, Chair and CEO of Avison Young, the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm, announced today that it will hold its fourth annual Global Day of Giving this Thursday, October 19 in all of the company’s markets. “On October 19, employees in Avison Young’s 80 offices in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Europe will again dedicate the day to volunteer activities on behalf of local community organizations that strive every day to better the lives of people in need and at risk,” comments Rose.

“We’re thrilled that approximately 2,600 employees will participate in the Global Day of Giving to help us promote social, economic and environmental sustainability. The 80 offices participating this year represent a 25% increase from 2014, when we held our inaugural Global Day of Giving. That year, employees in 60 offices took part. More importantly, this increase means that we are giving back to more communities that support our company and our causes throughout the year.”

Avison Young’s Global Day of Giving is part of the company’s global citizenship strategy. Each Avison Young office has chosen its own community volunteer project in consultation with the charity that will receive the assistance. “Many people want to give to their local community but they just aren’t sure where to begin,” notes Donna Abood, Avison Young Principal and Co-Managing Director of the firm’s Miami office. “The Day of Giving unites our Avison Young family globally during a day on which we all have the opportunity to not only give financially, but to take the time physically to show our support and gratitude to our local organizations throughout the world. It’s easy to write a cheque, but it is much more meaningful when we roll up our sleeves and get fully engaged in giving. When we think about Avison Young’s unified effort to do so around the world on the same day, well, that is just amazing corporate culture that we can all be proud to be a part of.”

NVAR Joins Thousands of Realtors® Visiting Washington and Capitol Hill to Advocate for Homeownership and Commercial Real Estate

Greg Martin 2mbOn behalf of current and future home and property owners throughout the country, more than 9,600 Realtors® traveled to Washington, D.C., this week to advance key real estate issues during the 2017 REALTOR® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo.

More than 85 REALTOR® representatives from across the Silver State joined fellow Realtors® from across the nation to attend meetings and informational sessions, as well as meet with regulatory agency staff and lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss and advocate real estate issues affecting their businesses, communities and clients.

Attending Realtors®, including members of the statewide Nevada Association of Realtors® (NVAR), focused on several significant issues affecting the industry during the legislative-focused meetings, including flood insurance, tax reform and sustainable homeownership.

“Realtors® are critical advocates for the real estate industry and for their clients, and this meeting is the perfect opportunity to educate ourselves on the issues facing real estate markets, as well as the legislative and regulatory issues on the horizon that could affect Realtors®, home buyers and sellers, and property owners,” said NVAR CEO Teresa McKee.

While in Washington, NVAR leaders met with Senator Dean Heller and Representatives Mark Amodei, Dina Titus, Ruben Kihuen and Jacky Rosen on Capitol Hill to discuss and influence public policy decisions that directly affect consumers’ ability to own, buy, rent and sell residential and commercial real estate.

“As the leading advocates for real estate, it is important for Realtors® to meet face to face with our nation’s representatives to make sure homeownership and commercial real estate remains top of mind, since these help to shape our communities and play crucial roles in the economic health of America,” said 2017 NVAR President Greg Martin.

One of the main issues discussed was the urgent need to pass a multiyear reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program before it expires onSept. 30. Additionally, Realtors® urged the protection of sustainable homeownership by advocating for responsible reform of the secondary mortgage market, prohibiting the use of guarantee fees for any purposes other than credit-risk management, improving consumer protections for energy-efficiency improvement loans and tax reform.

“With tax reform currently being discussed by the administration and legislators, it is important for regulators to hear from Realtors® that while tax reform is necessary, it cannot come at the expense of real estate tax provisions, such as the mortgage interest deduction, which are essential to the housing market and a key driver of the economy,” said Martin.

During the meetings, attendees also heard from industry experts and leaders, including Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, who spoke about the challenges facing potential homebuyers, including low home inventories and tight mortgage credit. During the meeting, Carson confirmed that HUD is in “lock-step” with Realtors® about an NAR-backed rule that would make it easier for consumers to buy a condominium with Federal Housing Administration backed financing, which has been pending since September 2016. Carson agreed that this rule would “make a big difference to a lot of Americans.”

In addition, attendees heard from Fox News’ Chris Wallace and CNBC’s Ron Insana, who shared their insights on the administration’s agenda and other legislative and regulatory happenings in Washington; Mark Calabria, chief economist to Vice President Mike Pence, who said reversing weak productivity and the low labor force participation rate are necessary to boosting the economy; John Worth, senior vice president for Research and Investor Outreach, National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, who shared his perspectives on commercial market activity; Roy Wright, deputy associate administrator for Insurance and Mitigation at the Federal Emergency Management Administration, who said that challenges remain in ensuring access to affordable flood insurance and a multi-year reauthorization of the NFIP is critical; and NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, who shared residential and commercial real estate market updates and forecasts for the remainder of 2017.

During the week, Realtors® also participated in a series of on-site visits with regulatory agency staff at the Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Department of Treasury and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

In addition to the informational legislative sessions and meetings with legislators, NVAR members and conference goers had the opportunity to explore the latest industry innovations and receive up-to-date information on the newest products and services from more than 100 industry-leading companies that participated during the trade expo.

Support The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Las Vegas Take Steps Walk On April 29th

Join hundreds of local children and adults battling Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis to walk for cures in the Mountains Edgeon Saturday, April 29 at Exploration Park. Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is the Foundation’s largest fundraising event dedicated to raising critical research funds and awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two painful, debilitating digestive diseases that affect 1 in 200 Americans, including 80,000 children nationwide.

“Take Steps is often the first time a newly diagnosed patient comes face to face with other patients who truly understand their disease,” said Breanna Baer, national manager, Take Steps Campaign. “Our walk is a celebration of all that we have accomplished in battling these diseases. Patients and families feel empowered for having made a tangible difference in their own lives, inspired for their own futures, and connected to others on a similar journey. Our patients are never alone in their fight.”

Take Steps funds critical research efforts for those suffering from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Take Steps Las Vegas has set a goal to raise nearly $50,000 in 2017. In total, the Foundation has invested $267 million in research for cures.

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are medically incurable diseases that affect the digestive system and affect 1.6 million Americans. Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are often referred to as ‘silent diseases’ because many who suffer are embarrassed to talk about their condition. In addition to fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, and fatigue, symptoms of IBD also can include an urgent need to use the bathroom, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, rectal bleeding, and constipation. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery.

In addition to the walk through Exploration Park at the Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community, festivities will include live music, refreshments, kid’s entertainment, raffle prizes, booths, information, park activities, and more. Well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.

A $50 donation per person is encouraged to celebrate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary in providing support to patients. Every participant who raises $100 or more will receive a 2017 commemorative T-shirt, a Take Steps keepsake to carry on walk day, and a wristband to receive refreshments.

To register prior to the event, organize a team, or get involved, visit or contact Breanna Baer at or call


Check-in and festivities begin at 9 a.m. with the community walk at 10 a.m. Exploration Park is located at 9700 South Buffalo Drive, just south of Blue Diamond Road.

Take Steps Las Vegas is sponsored by Abbvie, Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community, City National Bank and United Healthcare.
