The REALTOR® Party works for you

Are you a Democrat? Republican? Independent? We’ve got you covered! We are the REALTOR® Party, which means we advocate for REALTORS® and the real estate issues that benefit you. The REALTOR® Party is non-partisan in its selection of candidates, focusing on the people and policies that are best for your business regardless of party affiliation.

What is RPAC?

The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is your opportunity to invest in the future of your business.

On local, state, and federal levels, RPAC funds support:

  • The election of REALTOR®-friendly candidates
  • Grassroots campaigns that advocate for laws and regulations that affect your business

We are one of the strongest advocacy organizations in the nation for one reason: we have the best members. In politics there are players and bench warmers. Investing in RPAC makes us players.

In 2023, with your support, RPAC was able to protect your business and the American dream of homeownership. Victories over the past year include:
