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.

Now more than ever, it is critical for REALTORS® to come together and speak with one voice about the stability a sound and dynamic real estate market brings to our communities.  From city hall to the state house to the U.S. Capitol, our elected officials are making decisions that have a huge impact on the bottom line of REALTORS® and their customers.  Through the support of REALTORS® like you, the REALTOR® Party represents your interests.
