Advocacy? But what does that really mean?

REALTORS® are constantly facing forces from many directions that threaten their profession. Threats to housing incentives and programs, increased regulations, lack of available financing and inventory shortages are only a few of the issues that REALTORS® confront every day.

Washington REALTORS® work on your behalf so that you can practice real estate with the assurance that someone is protecting you and your clients. Want to see how we accomplish this? Come to our conferences, fundraisers, Capital Hill visits and more. There are plenty of opportunities for networking, too. Get involved in advocacy related committees.  These committees are full of hard-working, dedicated individuals with the single goal of protecting REALTORS® & their clients.   


Want to be a part of one of these committees? Contact Amy Davis at (800) 562-6024 x 118 or amy.davis@warealtor.org
