POLICIES & POSITIONS



Washington REALTORS® is respected in Olympia for policy positions on issues that affect the real estate transaction, the cost and supply of housing, and land development.

This document summarizes those positions, a result of hours of analysis by our members on three Special Committees (Consumer and Business Affairs, Tax & Fiscal, and Land Use & Environment), a review by our Legislative Steering Committee and final approval by our Board of Directors.
