As the largest trade association in the U.S., the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) advocates every day on behalf of the nation's one million Realtors and 75 million property owners. NAR is widely considered one of the most effective advocacy organizations in the country.

From its building located steps away from the United States Capitol, NAR advocates for federal policy initiatives that strengthen the ability of Americans to own, buy, and sell real property.

On the state and local level, the Realtor Party is a powerful alliance of Realtors and Realtor Associations working to protect and promote homeownership and property investment. The Realtor Party speaks with one voice to advance candidates and public policies that build strong communities and promote a vibrant business environment.

The Realtor Party is effective at all levels of government because of its grassroots strength. That strength is exhibited in advocacy, as well as community involvement. The Realtor Party works hand in hand with the Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC).

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.
