Boston REIA March Newsletter 2021
Dear Boston Members and Friends,
As we head into March 2021 it is still necessary to host our Boston meetings virtually. We will continue to provide Real Estate Educational programs and workshops online and you can stay connected with us in many ways… Facebook, sign up for Emails, attend our Online Events (or shoot us an email from time to time to let us know how you’re doing).
Legislation is really starting to heat up. I personally have been digging through hundreds & hundreds of new Bills being introduced … And adding key ones to our Legislative Page. A few are good for Housing Providers, but many are ones we will need to keep a sharp eye on to vote down.
Thank you for your ongoing support and keep your eyes peeled for upcoming Urgent Legislative Alerts!

And the Name is… Perseverance!
On February 18th, 2021 many of us watched the historic landing of the Mars Rover, Perseverance. This is the backstory of how Perseverance got its name and a quote from the winning essay. Article
“Curiosity. InSight. Spirit. Opportunity. If you think about it, all of these names of past Mars rovers are qualities we possess as humans. We are always curious and seek opportunity. We have the spirit and insight to explore the Moon, Mars, and beyond. But, if rovers are to be the qualities of us as a race, we missed the most important thing. Perseverance. We as humans evolved as creatures who could learn to adapt to any situation, no matter how harsh. We are a species of explorers, and we will meet many setbacks on the way to Mars. However, we can persevere. We, not as a nation but as humans, will not give up. Even faced with bitter losses such as Opportunity and Vikram humansace will always persevere into the future.”
