Advocacy

“REAL ESTATE IS YOUR PROFESSION,

POLITICS IS YOUR BUSINESS”



 

  • REALTORS® are champions of home and property ownership.

    REALTORS® know how home and property ownership changes lives. That is why we advocate for products like the 30-year, fixed rate mortgage and other factors that benefit property ownership. This includes addressing increasing housing costs and availability of mortgage credit for all.
  • REALTORS® fight to protect private property rights.

    REALTORS® and REALTOR® associations work at all levels of government to safeguard against threats to private property rights. REALTORS® stand for equal access to housing and the removal of barriers that prevent the full, intended use of property.
  • REALTORS® are community leaders.

    REALTORS® have a vested interest in creating better places to live and improving the quality of life for residents. Working with public officials and partner organizations, REALTORS® drive community and economic development by advocating for smart policies at the local, state, and national level.

 

Through investments in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC), the Corporate Ally Program, and President’s Circle, and continued engagement in the electoral and legislative processes, REALTORS® ensure the success of all 1.4 million REALTOR® members.
