Realtors Association of Palm Beaches

As part of our ongoing fight to protect the American Dream, REALTORS® need to support political action committees (PACs), which help us stay at the forefront of state and national legislative issues that affect homeownership. In politics, money talks, and the more money we raise for our PACs, the louder we can speak on behalf of consumers. Learn more about our state and national PACs below and invest in your profession!

RPAC FAQs

  • What is REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC)? As the political action committee for the National Association of REALTORS®, RPAC bans REALTORS® together to promote and protect the real estate industry, both locally and nationally. RPAC is the only nationwide REALTOR® PAC for REALTORS®, run by REALTORS®. 

  • How can RPAC help my real estate business? RPAC is the best investment a REALTOR® can make to protect their business it's like "insurance" for the real estate industry. By contributing as little as $59 each year, the committee can continue fighting for tax reforms (such as the mortgage interest tax deduction to protect distressed sellers), protection of private property rights, reduction of burdensome regulations on our industry, and preservation of the American dream of homeownership.

  • Is RPAC affiliated with a particular political party? The committee only supports candidates and elected officials who share REALTOR® values on REALTOR®-related issues, regardless of their political party affiliation.
