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!
