DINNER SERVED AT 7:00pm - Where is real estate headed in the federal legislative picture

Featuring Trey Hollingsworth, Representing Indiana's 9th Congressional District


Representative Trey Hollingsworth has represented Indiana’s 9th District since 2016; a wide-ranging district comprised of small businesses, suburban communities, hard-working farmers, and striving students all united by their focus on how we collectively build a more prosperous, safer, and stronger America.

A small business owner and long time real estate investor, Trey began renovating and rehabilitating abandoned industrial sites after graduating from business school. Even during the depths of the recession as other U.S. businesses moved overseas, Trey’s business found opportunities for companies to expand, produce, and hire right here at home. Due to his strong belief in the productivity of the American worker, the ingenuity of American companies, and the durability of the American economy, Trey knows American manufacturing can compete anywhere in the world if only we get government out of the way.

Representative Hollingsworth met with INstateREIA legislative committee in 2020 and immediately asked how he could help. He will be joining us on Friday night (April 16th) at the Annual Dinner as our Keynote Speaker and will be speaking about WHERE IS REAL ESTATE HEADED IN THE FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE PICTURE.

3:30pm Why Strong Property Rights are Essential for Good Housing Providers and Successful Real Estate Investors

Featuring Evan McMahon, State Activist

Evan McMahon is the Chair of the Libertarian Party of Indiana, investment property owner, and a nationally recognized expert on issue advocacy and campaigning.

Over the past 20 years, Evan has worked in all 50 states on political campaigns focused on candidates for public office, underrepresented industries, and minority opinion policy positions. These efforts led to positive policy changes for those industries and supportive officials elected to office.

As a Libertarian and a landlord, Evan is concerned with the ongoing attacks on private property rights on the state and local level. Whether it’s restrictions on how you rent your property, bans on short term rentals, zoning and building codes that hamper development and investment, or the myriad of forms that differ from city to city… this assault on private property is coming from the left and the right.

Evan McMahon will lead a discussion on how we can defend our property rights and grow our investments by preventing bad legislation and local regulations through direct political action.
