REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC)

We are the REALTOR® Party.

It is critical for REALTORS® to speak with one voice about the stability that the real estate market brings to our communities. From city hall to the state house to the U.S. Capitol, elected officials make decisions that have an impact on the bottom line of REALTORS® and their customers. REALTORS® contribute annually in RPAC as an investment in our business.

Members like you give MARPAC its ability to:

  • stop proposed taxes on your commissions
  • fight to prevent unnecessary regulation
  • work against added fees on your customers and clients
  • promote programs that assist marginal buyers
  • limit your legal risk
  • protect private property rights
  • ... plus many more important services for you!

Levels of RPAC Investment

FAIR SHARE

The Fair Share investment for the Principal Brokers of firms and Affiliates is $99/year and the Fair Share for agents in a firm is $25/year.  A small investment for such valuable business insurance.  Central Mississippi REALTORS® has a goal of increasing its Fair Share participation from 34% to 51%. 

REALTORS® can conveniently invest their Fair Share in RPAC conveniently through the annual REALTOR® dues billing.  The voluntary Fair Share contribution is automatically added to the dues bill.  REALTORS® who do not wish to contribute at that time may uncheck the RPAC box.  REALTORS® may contribute at any time during the year through the Make a Contribution section of our website.
 
MAJOR INVESTORS

Some REALTORS® who are passionate about the political process and the impact it has on their businesses choose to step up and contribute more than their Fair Share.  They invest a minimum of $1000/year at the Sterling R, Crystal R and Golden R levels.  Central Mississippi REALTORS® has the highest percentage of Major Investors for its size of any local Association in the United States resulting in helping Mississippi win coveted awards at National REALTOR® Conferences.
