REALTORS® Political Action Committee
If real estate is your profession, then politics is your business!
What is RPAC?
The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a standing committee involved in providing funding for political candidates at the national, state and local levels. The goal of RPAC is to establish the real estate industry as a concerned and involved constituency that gives active support to political candidates who recognize the needs of REALTORS® and property owners. RPAC is bi-partisan in its selection of candidates. The program and platform of each individual candidate, rather than a party label, determines whom RPAC supports. RPAC dollars increase the visibility of the real estate industry. With the help of RPAC, the industry is a recognized constituency in Washington D.C., Harrisburg, and our local communities.

Invest in Your Future
When you consider the impact of political decisions on your profession and on the business community as a whole, it is clear why your participation in RPAC is so important. RPAC supports members of the legislature who share REALTORS® values and viewpoints. We impact the process collectively, enabling our viewpoint to be heard and respected. Your investment can help you and your business avoid paying a far greater price in the future.
Get Action on Your Issues
The dollars you invest in RPAC help elect candidates at the federal, state and local levels who support the free enterprise system and private property rights. Members who invest in RPAC do so because they believe that organized REALTOR® activity in the campaign process will not only result in a better business climate for the real estate industry but in better government for all.
