Realtors® Political Action Committee helps fight to ensure fair laws are passed, and bad ones are defeated. RPAC is a nonpartisan organization that assists in the election of candidates who support private property rights and other issues that have a direct impact on the real estate industry on a local, state and national level. It's funded through voluntary contributions from members of the Realtor® association. 100 percent of RPAC contributions are used to support Realtor®-friendly candidates, 70 percent of which goes towards state and local race and 30 percent toward federal candidates.
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 interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.
