FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (May 25, 2016) – Jill Johns, the newest member of the DND Associates team, traveled to Washington, D.C. earlier this month with a contingent of fellow representatives from the National Association of Realtors® for the mid-year 2016 Realtors® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo.

While in the nation’s capital, Johns personally met with an influential group of state and local legislators from South Florida, including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Lois Frankel, to advocate for the preservation of property and homeownership rights.

Among one of the most important amendments is a proposal affecting private flood insurance. The House of Representatives unanimously approved H.R. 2901, the “Flood Insurance Market Party and Modernization Act” but it has yet to be brought to the Senate floor for a vote. This proposal is especially significant as it could affect millions of South Florida property owners who require flood insurance. Current regulations state that if a homeowner has a federally related mortgage they must maintain a “continuous amount of flood insurance coverage” if their home is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area. As it stands now, property owners may not satisfy the “continuous coverage” requirement should they opt to drop the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in favor of an alternate private market option. If a policyholder leaves the NFIP for these market options, they could jeopardize their grandfathered status and face substantial rate increases should they later decide to return to a NFIP policy. Johns and her fellow representatives are encouraging Senators to take congressional action and vote on this measure.

“It is a privilege to serve on board of directors for Florida Realtors and Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors. Through these volunteer initiatives, we are able educate a local, state and national audience about the benefits and consequences of the issues and bills being considered for vote,” said Jill Johns, CRS, MBF, Global Real Estate Portfolio Advisor with DND Associates at ONE Sotheby's International Realty. “Working in real estate day in and day out, I am able to stay on top of all the pressing issues and in turn I’m able educate our elected officials on a practical and grassroots level about the significance and implications of pending legislation.”
