Coming from a family that has been active in local politics for many years, I am aware that governments can support progress or can hinder progress; often it depends on whose story they're hearing. We need to make sure they're hearing our story. Advocacy is at the root of our organization’s mission. It’s a big reason why my fellow Leadership Team members and I got involved in the National Association of REALTORS®. As practitioners who work every day with buyers, sellers, tenants and landlords, we know the challenges you’re facing in the commercial space, and we must make sure our elected officials do, too. Please join us in sharing our story at the federal, state and local level. While we have an incredible advocacy team, their work at all levels of government is most effective when we are present—telling our stories, sharing our challenges and those of our clients, bringing solutions to the table, and uniting behind policies that pave a path of progress for our industry.



The National Association of REALTORS® advocates every day on behalf of the nation's 1.5 million REALTORS® and 75 million property owners.
