This Election Day, there are a number of key races for the Virginia House of Delegates that VAR is following closely — these are contests that could have a profound effect on real estate in Virginia.

Here’s a summary of two of them; we’ll be covering more as Election Day approaches.

House District 50 (Prince William/Manassas): Vote Jackson Miller

Delegate Jackson Miller is the Realtor-endorsed candidate for the 50th House district. A working broker, Delegate Miller is owner of Crossroads Realtors in Manassas, and he was the patron of two of VAR’s bills during the 2013 General Assembly Session.

He has shown himself to be a huge supporter of Realtors and property owners, and a loyal friend to the local and state associations.

House District 94 (Peninsula): Vote David Yancey

Delegate David Yancey is the Realtor-endorsed candidate for the 94th House district.  He was the patron of VAR’s important Realtor liability legislation during the 2012 and 2013 General Assembly session. Thanks to Delegate Yancey’s support, this legislation became law on July 1.

Delegate Yancey has been involved in his family’s real estate and investment business since 2001, and in 2003 started his own development and property management business. He holds Virginia professional licenses in real estate, contracting, and commercial fishing.
