The Southwest Riverside County Association of Realtors is pleased to announce they have retained Gene Wunderlich as Government Affairs Director. “Our Region now encompasses 5 cities in Southwest California with over 3,000 Realtor members,” according to SRCAR CEO Connie Lynch. “Our need to be represented at all levels of city, county, state and federal decision making has grown increasingly critical, especially given the challenges our housing market has faced during the past 18 months. Having Gene in this position will ensure that our Realtor members have a voice in the communities they serve.”
Wunderlich is a 20 year resident of Southwest County and has been a Realtor for 15 years. He has served as Chair of the Southwest Riverside County Association as well as numerous city, chamber and other community organizations including founding Chair of the Southwest California Legislative Council. He is a Director of both the California and National Associations of Realtors and serves on a variety of Legislative Committees including the Federal Land Use, Private Property and Environment Committee.
“I am very excited to be stepping into this challenge,” says Wunderlich. “I’m a strong believer in the power of political advocacy, that if we’re not at the table – we’ll probably be on the menu. The National Association of Realtors celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2008 and has long been recognized as the leading grassroots political organization in this country with over 1 million members. I am looking forward to representing that legacy locally, continuing the excellent relationship we have with our local, county and state representatives and making the substantial research and other resources of our organization available to them.”
