The Real Estate Roundtable plays a leadership role in the national policy process on behalf of the real estate community. We achieve our mission by educating policymakers and the public about real estate and its significance to the economy and by communicating real estate's views on a range of vital national policy issues.
The Real Estate Roundtable cannot contribute financially to the lawmakers and political candidates who shape federal public policy. That’s why it established REALPAC — The Real Estate Roundtable Political Action Committee.
REALPAC helps elect candidates who give thoughtful consideration to — and are supportive of — public polices advocated by the real estate community in the national public interest. REALPAC is funded by voluntary contributions from individual members of The Real Estate Roundtable.
Co-chairs and a steering committee comprised of leading Roundtable members direct the affairs of REALPAC. The committee chooses which candidates to support based on voting records, public positions, candidates’ actual or potential role in the legislative process and other relevant factors.
REALPAC does not engage in partisan politics; candidates are selected for support on a merit basis without regard to partisan affiliation. Individuals can contribute up to $5,000 to REALPAC per calendar year. Partnerships can also contribute up to $5,000 annually. It is illegal for corporations to contribute any amount, directly or indirectly, to REALPAC.
