A Letter For You From NAR’s 2020 President

As REALTORS®, we are members of the only advocacy group in America that fights exclusively for home ownership, real estate investment, strong communities, and the free enterprise system – the REALTOR® Party. Our work is not focused on the political right or the left. It’s focused on the issues that matter to us, existing and future homeowners, and to the real estate industry. So when nearly 1.4 million members stand together and speak with one voice, our voice rings loud and clear on issues, such as housing affordability, flood insurance, rent control, housing finance reform, and property taxes. It is up to all of us to invest in and own the process, celebrate the successes, and lean forward to ultimately Own Who We R.

For the first time, the REALTOR® Party has created an easy-to-use Interactive REALTOR® Party Resource Guide to assist you with your advocacy efforts. Available at www.realtorparty.realtor/resourceguide, the guide offers a comprehensive, easy-to-search view of the more than 80 programs, grants, resources, and tools, and technical assistance readily available for you to create and sustain successful advocacy programs. As you use the interactive guide, you’ll be able to directly contact staff and learn how other associations are successfully applying each program.

Each item is designed to bring the REALTOR® Party to life in your community, and solidify REALTORS® as a force to be reckoned with from city councils and state houses to the Nation’s Capital. We encourage each of you take advantage of this online asset, and we look forward to seeing all of your successes in the year to come.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of our nearly 1.4 million members,

Vince Malta
2020 NAR president
National Association of REALTORS®
