SOMERVILLE (August 27) – An outlook of the New Jersey real estate economy and a comprehensive briefing on related legislative and regulatory issues will be the focus of the next “Guardian Hour of Power Seminar” being held on Wednesday, September 18.

Two top executives from the New Jersey Association of Realtors – Douglas M. Tomson, Director of Government Affairs, and Jarrod C. Grasso, Chief Executive Officer – will present a “State Legislative Update,” including a look at some of the nearly 10,000 pieces of proposed legislation the NJAR has reviewed over the past several years.

Sponsored by Guardian Settlement Agents, one of the state’s leading title agencies serving all of New Jersey’s 21 counties, the free seminar will begin at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18 at the Raritan Valley Country Club, 747 Route 28, Bridgewater, NJ 08807. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served after the presentation.

To register for the seminar, contact Guardian Settlement Agents Chief Operating Officer Robert McNally at (908) 575-9995 or at There is no charge to attend.

“This will be a significant presentation for anyone in the real estate field to attend,” said Guardian CEO Christopher J. Brown. “We all need to stay current in our knowledge of state rules and regulations surrounding our business and an outlook on the future and who could be better to hear from than two of the top officials from our state association.”

Tomson has been with the NJAR since 2003 and has been Government Affairs Director since 2008. In this lobbying position, he works with state lawmakers in Trenton to help craft legislative and regulatory measures that have a positive impact on homeownership and the real estate industry.

Grasso, who joined the association in 1999, serves as the main advocate for the real estate industry in New Jersey. He directs the NJAR in its mission to offer its members programs and services to help them conduct business successfully and ethically. Before become CEO, Grasso was the association’s chief lobbyist.

“We are thrilled to have two of New Jersey’s most knowledgeable real estate professionals speak at our upcoming seminar,” said Guardian COO McNally. “Our goal is to help our customers and clients complete their property sales and purchases efficiently and accurately and having the latest legal information is a key part of this process.”

In addition to the large volume of legislation the NJAR reviews annually, the association actively lobbies on more than 200 bills a year that would have a direct impact on the way real estate is transacted in New Jersey. From local realty transfer fees and inspection requirements to bi-lingual leases and bedbugs, any law or regulation that could possibly affect the real estate industry will be reviewed in this seminar.
