RECPAC vs RPAC: The case for two pacs

As we enter into yet another election season, you may be wondering why GAAR has the Real Estate Community Political Action Committee (RECPAC) and you are still asked to donate to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC).

The reasons are simple.

  • RPAC is for National and State politics.
  • RECPAC is for Local Albuquerque and Central New Mexico Politics.
  • We need both RPAC and RECPAC because we want to be able to have access to politicos at the national, state and local levels.
  • Funding BOTH RPAC and RECPAC enables us to have our REALTOR® Voice heard at all levels of government.

As money from national interest groups flood into our market and take over our airwaves, it’s more important than ever that we have the funds to reach out to local candidates and local citizens about issues important to homeownership, private property rights, and the health of the local real estate industry.
