The REALTOR® Political Action Committee
Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: REALTORS® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interest. Click here for the RPAC Website
Now more than ever, it is critical for REALTORS® across America to come together and speak with one voice about the stability a sound and dynamic real estate market brings to our communities. From city hall to the state house to the U.S. Capitol, our elected officials are making decisions that have a huge impact on the bottom line of REALTORS® and their customers. Through the support of REALTORS® like you, the REALTOR® Political Action Committee represents your interests.
The Great Smoky Mountain Association of REALTORS® (GSMAR) supports its members and clients throughout its party. The GSMAR encourages its members to become involved in the community and to become knowledgeable about their businesses and the real estate markets. RPAC supports those candidates who understand the concerns and needs of the GSMAR members and those that support a healthy Real Estate industry.
Why the REALTOR® Political Action Committee Matters
Together, as the REALTOR® Political Action Committee, we can make partisan politics a thing of the past and create our own brand of leadership.
Politics is business when you consider the types of changes that are now being contemplated by mayors, governors and Members of Congress across the country:
- What would happen to the real estate market in your community if the mortgage deduction was eliminated from the tax code?
- What would happen if your customers were unable to afford the property insurance they needed to qualify for a mortgage?
Our allies in local, state and federal government span the political spectrum — and we need to work with each one of them to make sure they continue to support the interests of the real estate profession. In fact, the REALTOR® party has been a leader in building the bipartisan relationships necessary on both sides of the aisle in jurisdictions in every state. We need to build on that success and your involvement now can help make that happen.
The time is now to come together and fight for the interests of homeowners and the real estate profession.
