REALTORS® Political Action Committee

The North Carolina REALTORS® Political Action Committee (“NC RPAC”) is a non-partisan committee organized for the specific purpose of raising funds to support political candidates of all parties at the local, state and federal levels of government.

NC RPAC exists through the voluntary contributions of members, their spouses, and families of NCAR. NC RPAC was established by NCAR in recognition of the need to increase political activity and awareness among members, and to protect the interest of the real estate industry in the political arena.

You can be a large or small contributor to NC RPAC. However, we encourage every REALTOR® to give at least $25. NC RPAC contributes these funds to the campaigns of candidates at all levels of government. Of the contributions received, 30 percent of the funds are sent to the National RPAC and 70 percent stay in North Carolina to fund local and state candidates. Your voice is heard through the impact of your NC RPAC dollars.

We take great pride in the fact that NC RPAC consistently is the No. 1 business PAC in the state! It is essential that we are able to support the candidates that will fight for REALTOR® issues when elected. REALTORS® are under constant threat of sales tax on your commissions, higher taxes on your business, and increased real estate taxes. Your RPAC contributions are the key to our being able to make a difference in the Legislature.

I must admit, I was one of the people that stuck with the “I’m Not Political” statement and didn’t see any reason to invest my hard earned dollars into REALTORS® PAC.  That was until I realized where my dollars were really going. They were not going to one political party. They were not going to one idea or cause. They were going to help anyone that stood on the REALTORS® side of whatever issue was facing us at the time.  REALTOR® friendly candidates!  My dollars were going to help fight for my buyers and sellers private property rights, as well as my neighbors and my own.  My investment was actually going to help fight causes to SAVE me money – now and in the future.  I don’t have time to read all the legislation to determine how it may or may not impact my clients, I don’t have time to lobby lawmakers.  For my very small investment I become part of a larger group that has a stronger voice to help me be able to continue to do my job to the best of my abilities and represent my clients to the fullest.  My small investment is not only in MY future, but in the future of all real estate. I am a REALTOR® and because of that POLITICS is my business!

I’m Rosemarie Doshier, and I have been a long time contributor to RPAC. For the past 15+ years have been a Sterling member. I understand how the political process works and along with contributing to RPAC and individually to candidates. I also attend the Legislative meetings for the North Carolina State Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS® in DC. What is interesting is, not only do RPAC contributions help protect our industry, it also protects our home owners.  While attending these meetings for the past 20 years, I can truly say that I can see the difference we, as REALTORS®, make with our donations and with our personal visits. The only way to do this is to be “Active” and to “Donate” your fair share to RPAC.

The dollars that we invest in RPAC enables us to have input in legislation that affects our industry. We know how important it is to have a seat at the table when legislation is being discussed.

Hello! My name is Gray Berryman. I invest in my business regularly. I see RPAC as a critical investment for our industry. RPAC works to ensure my clients’ interests in real estate are protected at the local, state and national levels. I am happy to contribute because I know the money is well spent to educate and influence politicians about issues ranging from taxation to insurance.
