Welcome to the California RRC

Happy Holidays to you and yours this season!  

Thank you all for your support of California CRS over this past year!  I am so proud of all of the members who attended our 4 courses that were held across the state.  We have heard you asking for classes in your area and organized them across the state to try and make them more accessible.  A special "Thank You!" to all those members who introduced CRS to someone new! Additionally, it was truly astounding to see that CRS members contributed over $26,000 for California Association of REALTORS Housing Affordability Fund!  Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness. 

It has truly been an honor to serve as the California CRS President over this past year. I was able to meet so many people and hear why and how they got involved with CRS.  Your stories of what you have learned and how you have benefitted from your involvement with CRS are inspiring. 

As you are aware, CRS has been making some changes.  There is a new name, a new logo, and a new website just to name a few.  Change is always difficult and I ask you to be patient and understanding as the Council works through some of the challenges.  One of the exciting changes that I would like to announce is that our new State President is Sandy Kaplan! She is a past Northern California CRS President and brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the position.  Please join me in welcoming Sandy as she takes the reins!

Thank you for allowing me to serve and I look forward to seeing you at CRS events throughout California!

All the best,
Melanie McShane
CA RRC President 2017

Smart Tax and Asset Protection Planning for Real Estate Investors
What do real estate agents need to know about tax implications for local and international buyers? What about estate tax planning? Curious about financing?
Join CPA/Estate Attorney Vivian Yuan and Lender Lisa Wendl to learn more about these topics.
The new tax law, which became effective on January 1, 2018, represents the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in 30 years. Many of the provisions affect real estate owners, who are in a unique position when it comes to tax and asset protection planning opportunities. For people holding various visas applying for financing, additional considerations should be taken into account depending on their visa status.
In this interactive session, we will use real life examples to discuss:
1. How the new tax law will affect U.S. and foreign real estate investors.
2. Estate and asset protection planning opportunities at-a-glance.
3. Latest updates on financing for people holding various visas.

This event is worth 2 hours of maintenance credit.
