RPAC: 50 Years of REALTOR® Advocacy
In 1969, as America’s political winds began to shift, forward-thinking members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) sought the ability to harness the political clout of what would become one of the largest trade associations in the country. From this, the Real Estate Political Education Committee (REPEC) was launched. Later, it would become the National Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee, or RPAC.
At its onset, RPAC had 300 investors contributing a total of $28,000. In 2018, more than 450,000 REALTORS®—35 percent of the NAR’s membership—invested more than $34 million to support local, state and federal candidates and issues. This growth has been essential to NAR’s ability to shape the future of the real estate industry. Continue reading…

The year was 1858, and a group of eleven real estate brokers came together to create the Baltimore Board of Real Estate Broker and Property Agents. The organization was the first formed to speak with a common voice in real estate, and to ensure ethical practices and professional standards for the industry.
Over the years this group evolved into our Greater Baltimore Board of REALTORS® (GBBR) and served as a founding member of both the Maryland Association and National Association of REALTORS®. GBBR set forth a legacy in leadership for the real estate profession, as well as advocating for the rights of private property owners across our great state.
Today we continue to speak with that same common voice in real estate with our participation in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC). As you know, RPAC enables REALTORS® to support political candidates and legislation that protect and enhance our ability to conduct fair transaction practices that are vital to both our careers and communities.
To demonstrate the potent, collective voice we have in the local legislative arena, and commemorate the vision of our GBBR founders, we have launched the 1858 Club. To be honored in the 1858 club, we ask of our members a modest contribution of $18.58 (or more) to RPAC, which will be acknowledged with a handsome lapel pin to distinguished your support.
