Your membership in the Pickens County Board of REALTORS® makes you part of one of the most powerful and influential grassroots lobbying efforts in the country. Volunteer leaders and staff are constantly working with lawmakers and regulators at all levels of government to represent our industry and protect your best interests as a real estate professional.
We are the REALTOR® Party!
REALTORS® fight and win battles every day that protect your profitability. Examples of recent successes include preventing local governments from charging individual REALTORS® a business license fee, defeating an attempt to double the real estate transfer tax, and preserving the prohibition on banks from providing real estate services.
It's not just about protecting your bottom line, however. REALTORS® lead the way in fighting to protect private property rights, create affordable housing opportunities, encourage smart growth, and promote fair housing.
Active engagement in political activity is the right of every citizen, but is a responsibility for every REALTOR®. Get involved and make a difference today.
