What is RPAC?
The answer is simple. RPAC makes a big difference in your bottom line, and here’s how: contributing to RPAC supports efforts to elevate awareness of issues that impact the way the industry operates. RPAC supports legislators and candidates who support REALTOR® issues ensuring an environment of opportunity and success for REALTORS®… for you. And RPAC facilitates the attention that we bring to regulations and policies that affect homebuyers and property rights. Would your business be impacted by the elimination of the mortgage interest deduction or a 500 percent increase in the deductible a client would have to pay for underground oil tank clean up and repair? The issues that impact your bottom line are the RPAC issues. Those are the issues we advocate for – to empower your success and protect your opportunities.
