The GOP hosted its inaugural First-Time Homebuyer’s Workshop in Arlington, Virginia, as part of an outreach program to help guide young families and individuals through the often-daunting process of acquiring real estate for the first time.
Mitch Freckleton, the RNC’s Director of Young Leaders, led the workshop, offering useful advice to attendees as they prepare to make this significant financial and personal investment. Attendees were able to hear from special guests including Republican Party of Virginia’s Regional Field Director Taylor Harshaw, and President of the Virginia Mortgage Broker’s Association Bill Burnette. Freckleton also advised the attendees on how to use savings from President Trump’s tax cuts to invest in a home.
Emphasizing the crucial relationship between government policy and homeownership, Freckletonshared his story about how tax reform helped him and his wife save for a new home. He also emphasized the importance of tax reform for America’s young homeowners, as well as the next generation of homebuyers.

Burnette and his colleagues gave a presentation breaking down the various steps involved in purchasing a first home. They also shared available offers for buyers and other resources to navigate the home buying process.
Harshaw spoke to the group about the importance of getting politically involved. He illustrated how critical policies like President Trump’s tax reform would be impossible without the community’s engagement and the hard work of GOP volunteers across the nation, and even registered several new Republican voters.
