NC REALTORS® Advocacy
The NC REALTORS® Government Affairs team is a skilled group of lobbyists, political operatives, fundraisers and grass roots specialists, focused on making sure the REALTOR® voice is heard at all levels of government. They continually examine new ways to effectively disseminate information to members about policy changes and legislation that affects you, your business, and your clients.
Call for Actions
Taking action and making your voice heard is one of the most powerful tools that you have as a NC REALTOR® to protect your business, your clients, and YOU. NC REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS® launch Calls for Action (CFAs) to alert REALTORS® about specific issues of immediate or upcoming interest.
A CFA requests REALTORS® to contact their respective elected officials about an issue, and sometimes requests that they ask their clients and friends to contact elected officials as well. The CFA will include important information, such as talking points on the REALTOR® stance and convenient links for contacting elected officials.
Responding quickly to CFAs is critical to communicating a coordinated, powerful grassroots message.
The goal of the CFA is to generate a simultaneous high volume of personalized communications from REALTORS® and others to targeted elected officials.
There are two ways to sign up for alerts. First, you can text “NC REALTORS” to 30644 to receive them on your mobile phone. You can also sign up for alerts and customize the way you receive them at realtoractioncenter.com.
NC Property Rights Fund (NC PRF)
The NC Property Rights Fund is one of NC REALTORS®’ most valuable tools as it provides the ability, through independent expenditures, to support local and state electoral candidates with a record of protecting private property rights, preserving the dream of homeownership, and supporting the real estate industry. Visit ncpropertyrightsfund.org for more information.
NC REALTORS® Political Action Committee (NC REALTORS® PAC)
Investing in the NC REALTORS® Political Action Committee (NC REALTORS® PAC) is the best insurance that you can buy for your business. NC REALTORS® PAC is driven by the desire to insure that REALTOR®-friendly candidates are elected at all levels of government. It is important that these candidates understand and support REALTOR® interests, regardless of their political affiliation. NC REALTORS® PAC remands one of the state’s most respected political action groups because of its strong commitment to working with all parties to enact legislation that protects the real estate industry, homeownership, private property rights, and our state’s economy. But none of this will be possible without member investment and support.
