Government Affairs

As REALTORS®, many of the business activities you engage in are impacted by local government actions:

• Supports candidates in local government elections who understand your business concerns and needs.

• Supports the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) in their efforts to pass legislation that is: REALTOR®-friendly, protects private property rights, supports homeownership, and promotes an economic environment in which businesses and the real estate industry can thrive (and to oppose legislation that does not accomplish these aims).

• Keeps you informed of pending real estate-related legislation and regulatory changes that impact your business.


Our work is based on five key principles:

Housing – Providing housing opportunities for all
Ownership – Protecting property owners and encouraging homeownership
Means – Ensuring economic, community, and family vitality
Environment – Preserving our local environment

All of our policy and election decisions are member driven. You can be a part of this process through one of these committee.
