Political Advocacy

NAR's DC building, steps from the U.S. Capitol

As the largest trade association in the U.S., the National Association of REALTORS® advocates every day on behalf of the nation's 1 million REALTORS® and 75 million property owners. NAR is widely considered one of the most effective advocacy organizations in the country.

Federal Advocacy

From its building located steps away from the United States Capitol, NAR advocates for federal policy initiatives that strengthen the ability of Americans to own, buy, and sell real property.

State & Local Advocacy

The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to protect and promote homeownership and property investment. The REALTOR® Party speaks with one voice to advance candidates and public policies that build strong communities and promote a vibrant business environment.

The REALTOR® Party is effective at all levels of government because of its grassroots strength. That strength is exhibited in advocacy, as well as community involvement. The REALTOR® Party works hand in hand with the REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC).

NAR provides a wide variety of resources to foster and harness the grassroots strength of the REALTOR® Party.
