Holly Sears

Shared Government Affairs Coordinator

Willamette Valley MLS serves Marion, Polk, Linn and Benton counties – which include a number of communities that are geographically, individually, and politically diverse.


Local governments make decisions that can greatly impact the lives of real estate practitioners and the clients they serve.  That's why WVMLS commits 75% of the funds necessary to contract a Government Affairs Coordinator to be our eyes and ears in local governments in the Willamette Valley.  The five local Realtor® organizations as well as

the entire WVMLS membership benefit from her efforts on our behalf.

Holly recently started HDS Consulting, LLC to provide consulting services specializing in government affairs.  Prior to providing general consulting services, Holly served as the Government Affairs Director for the Oregon Refuse & Recycling Association, a statewide association representing solid waste and recycling companies.

Holly has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alaska and a Juris Doctorate from Willamette University College of Law.  Holly has been a member of the Oregon State Bar since 2006.  She looks forward to representing your needs before local government.

Sears encourages our members to become more involved in the government affairs process by:

  • Signing up for Voter Voice to receive updates from your Capitol lobbyist

  • Serving on your local Government Affairs Committee

  • Contributing to your Realtor® organizations' PAC

  • Attend the Willamette Valley Government Affairs Committee meeting 

    • Held quarterly at locations in Marion and Benton Counties.  All WVMLS members are welcome to attend.  Feel free to contact Holly for specific dates & times.
