The Green Mountain Association of Realtors® engages in a variety of legislative and regulatory activities to protect property rights and to create home ownership opportunities for citizens of our county and for all Vermonters. Working with the Vermont Association of Realtors® (VAR), our leadership lobbies on key real estate issues in Vermont’s statehouse.

Advocacy at Work

Since 1969, the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States.

Realtors® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by Realtors®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by Realtors® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables Realtors® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.

GMAR works with VAR and with the National Association of Realtors® to support key home ownership issues. Our goal is to ensure that the dream of home ownership is accessible to all Vermonters and to all Americans. Read more about the issues below.

Homeownership Matters

From city hall to the U.S. Capitol, REALTORS® are actively involved in a wide range of issues related to the health and well-being of the communities where they work and live. Through their membership in the National Association of REALTORS®, they are a powerful voice in support of the dream of homeownership and work to build strong communities and a vibrant business environment that benefits everyone.
