State and local REALTOR® Associations around the country are taking advantage of REALTOR® Party tools and resources to step up their community outreach and advocacy efforts. Their success stories expand beyond their states and cities because they inspire and set precedents. Take a look at the examples here for around the country.
Do You Have an Advocacy or REALTOR Party Success Story to Share?
When the Nashville City Council attempted to add 90 days to the process of selling residential rental property, the Greater Nashville REALTORS® achieved an acceptable compromise with a call for action through the Advocacy Everywhere program. REALTOR® Party Mobile Alerts are a critical resource enabling its members to be advocates wherever their busy lives take them, says association leadership.
For years, the Traverse Area REALTORS® have worked to build coalitions focused on developing much-needed workforce housing. With the support of Housing Opportunity Grants, it is now participating in an ambitious campaign that will create a network of engaged, informed grassroots housing advocates in neighborhoods throughout the region.
Earlier this year, the REALTOR® Association of Acadiana found itself dropped into the deep end of urgent legislative advocacy. Taking advantage of the Land Use Initiative and Advocacy Everywhere programs, the 1,600-member association was able to combat threats to both short-term rentals and property tax rates, achieving positive results for homeowners in Lafayette, Louisiana.
