Thank You For Attending 2022 Triple Play

More than 6,700 Realtors® and other attendees traveled to Atlantic City last week for the 2022 Triple Play Realtor® Convention & Trade Expo. This year's sessions covered multiple offer strategies, digital marketing strategies, and so much more.

As part of the National Association of Realtors® brand campaign, Riding with the Brand, Bethenny Frankel, Founder of Skinnygirl and BStrong was the 2022 Realtors® Triple Play keynote speaker. She discussed her brand, Skinnygirl, and the issues and dilemmas every small and expanding business faces.

Thank you to all who attended this year and save the date for 2023 Realtors® Triple Play, Dec. 4-7.

Congratulations Charlie

At NJ Realtors® President’s Installation and Gala at Realtors® Triple Play, NJ Realtors® named Past President Charlie Oppler as the first recipient of the Leadership Legacy Award. The Leadership Legacy Award, established in 2022 by the New Jersey Realtors® Leadership Team, recognizes outstanding guidance, initiative, and stewardship of the association, its members and goals, and the real estate industry. The 2022 NJ Realtors® Leadership Team felt strongly that the first recipient of this prestigious award be Charlie Oppler, due to his commitment to not only his own state association but also the National Association of Realtors®, where he served as president in 2022.

State of the State

DEP Removes Proposed Boiler Mandate

Last week, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection eliminated part of a proposed rule that would have required certain boilers to be converted to electric starting in the year 2025.

Requiring electric boiler conversions in schools, apartment buildings, and certain commercial properties is estimated to cost $17 billion in total, according to industry experts. New Jersey Realtors® will continue closely monitoring this matter and other portions of the governor’s Energy Master Plan that would require costly conversions in residential and commercial properties.
