Your Quick List to Show Your Support
March 2, 2020
Spring is around the corner and we’re sure things are already getting busy for your agents and your business.
Before things get too hectic, can we count on your support of a few items critical to make sure that the real estate industry stays vibrant in Virginia and beyond?
Here’s the checklist:
- Contribute to RPAC and encourage your agents to do the same. Investing in RPAC provides resources necessary to run our advocacy programs and ensure we elect REALTOR®-friendly candidates to public office. You can even sign up for a payment plan if you’re interested in becoming a Major Investor.
- Sign up for the Broker Involvement Program. This simple and free program allows NAR to send Call For Action emails to your agents, using your name and logo. Agents are more likely to respond when the email comes from you, rather than a generic email address. This is an easy way to encourage your people to act on important advocacy initiatives.
- Want an even better result for Calls For Action? Encourage your agents to sign up for REALTOR® Party Mobile Alerts. We all know REALTORS® live on their phones, so a text message Call For Action through the RPMA program ensures a quick response. There’s usually only one or two Calls for Action each year, so don’t worry about being bugged that much. Simply text “REALTOR” to 30644 to get started.
We know you are busy, and that’s a good thing most of the time; however, with the ever-changing political and policy landscape, we all must be ready to speak in a strong, unified REALTOR® voice to protect your business, your agents, and your clients. Taking the three steps above ensure we’re ready to act when needed.
