WHAT RPAC DOES FOR YOU

As a leading force in our nation’s public policy debates, the REALTORS®Political Action Committee (RPAC) is the only investment dedicated to furthering the interests of real estate professionals in our nation’s capital, state legislatures and city halls. Since its inception almost forty years ago, RPAC has worked to ensure that the real estate industry speaks with a unified voice, and continues to provide you with an influential political presence.

RPAC is the muscle behind NAR.  RPAC represents over 500,000 politically active REALTORS® that members of Congress want as their friends.  RPAC aggressively pursues the election and re-election of candidates for local, state and federal office, who stand up and support real estate professionals on key issues like these, as well as a long list of other issues critical to our future!

Promoting home ownership across the economic spectrum

Expanding the availability of health insurance for small businesses

Keeping the federal government out of real estate regulation

Improved congressional oversight of federal regulatory decisions

Fostering a vibrant commercial real estate sector

Dedicated to maintaining the Mortgage Interest Deduction

Maintaining a level playing field by keeping banks out of the real estate brokerage and property management business
