The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to advance public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests and promote a vibrant business environment.

The REALTOR® Party is the only grassroot campaign that works for the good of the Public and not a special interest group. The candidates supported by the REALTOR® Party and RPAC dollars are REALTOR® Champions and Political Affiliation makes no difference. Contributions are made to all other political parties as well, with the two major Parties having a 49% versus 50% contribution split from RPAC dollars.
