WASHINGTON (September 22, 2021) – National Association of Realtors® President Charlie Oppler issued the following statement after the Bipartisan Policy Center announced the launch of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Center for Housing Policy:
"NAR congratulates the Bipartisan Policy Center for launching the J. Ronald Terwilliger Center for Housing Policy. This center is a crucible where party affiliations disappear and real and enduring housing policy solutions emerge.
"At the core of what we do as an association is the foundational belief that Americans from every walk of life deserve access to the American Dream. For too long, affordable housing opportunities have been out of reach for too many, and the pandemic has amplified the challenges. The lack of affordable housing supply is nothing short of a crisis that will take a once-in-a-generation and coordinated national response. NAR looks forward to collaborating with Ron and the Bipartisan Policy Center to ensure every American is afforded access to homeownership."
The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing more than 1.5 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
