REALTOR® Party 2020 Pillars

REALTOR® Party 2020 Pillars

2020 will be an exciting year for the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® and our advocacy operations. Not only is it a presidential election year, but the uncertain political environments and issues that our industry are facing are unprecedented. From statewide rent control legislation and bans on vacation rentals to addressing housing supply and affordability on all levels of government, we must work together to leverage our expertise and educate and mobilize our members when necessary.

That’s what the REALTOR® Party is all about— understanding the vital role that each of us plays in shaping the future of the real estate industry and making homeownership a reality for all. A key piece of our work will be leveraging our status as community leaders to collaborate, partner, and tap into resources to positively impact community development, housing affordability and supply. Not only do we need your best ideas, passion, and creative thinking to make 2020 successful, but we need your help to inspire every REALTOR® to participate in our advocacy outreach opportunities. Let’s put the REALTOR® Party to work at its full potential! We have our work cut out for us, but together, we can meet the challenge.

These three pillars outline the REALTOR® Party advocacy focus:

  1. REALTORS® are champions of homeownership.
    REALTORS® know how home and property ownership changes lives. That is why we advocate for products like the 30-year, fixed rate mortgage and other factors that benefit property ownership. This includes addressing increasing housing costs and availability of mortgage credit for all.
  2. REALTORS® fight to protect private property rights.
    REALTORS® and REALTOR® associations work at all levels of government to safeguard against threats to private property rights. REALTORS® stand for equal access to housing and the removal of barriers that prevent the full, intended use of property.
  • REALTORS® are community leaders.
    REALTORS® have a vested interest in creating better places to live and improving the quality of life for residents. Working with public officials and partner organizations, REALTORS® drive community and economic development by advocating for smart policies at the local, state, and national level.

Thank you for your willingness to serve as a REALTOR® Party leader. We look forward to a successful year and to Owning Who We R!
