November is a time that allows us to reflect on all the things we are thankful for, big and small. One thing that REALTORS® can be thankful for is the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) and the impact it has on our industry!
RPAC dollars have been vital in efforts to keep REALTORS® considered a critical business role throughout the pandemic. In addition, work is being done every day to protect property rights, and most recently, the hard work was done with state legislators to pass historic legislation that allows us to work with insurance providers to establish health insurance plans to offer REALTOR® members. RPAC is key to making sure REALTOR® champions get elected and stay elected. In the ever-changing political landscape, our collective support of RPAC helps ensure that REALTOR® issues are recognized and supported by lawmakers from Washington, Richmond, and even right in your hometown. Remember, RPAC isn’t partisan—it’s a position in support of REALTORS® and the industry!
But don’t just take it from us, read some real testimonies below from Virginia REALTORS® who are thankful for RPAC today and always!
