REALTORS® play a crucial role in our communities. REALTORS® are invested in the well being of our towns and have valuable insights that local governments and policy makers greatly benefit from. Our communities benefit when REALTORS® play an active role in the planning & development processes in cities and the county. 

KCAR is dedicated to working with elected officials, local organizations, and volunteers to be advocates of private property rights and to make homeownership an achievable dream in Kitsap County. We work with local governments and provide our unique perspective on land use & development policies, as well as endorse & support political candidates running for election.

REALTORS® must be politically active. If not, who will take on the responsibility of protecting the values and rights we hold dear? Be assured that someone will—someone who may not value wise business planning and could threaten property owners and their rights. If REALTORS® do not speak out, get involved and help shape the discussion, someone else will. No one knows a community better than a REALTOR®. REALTORS® know the lay of the land, the families, the best schools, the neighborhoods and the leaders of any given area. REALTORS® work in every city, county and community in the nation.

RPAC uses its financial resources to support candidates for Congress who both understand and support REALTOR® issues.
