WHAT IS THE VALUE OF USING A REALTOR?

HOW WE HELP YOU

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS

The value of using a realtor starts with the National Association of REALTORS®. NAR’s is the largest lobbying party in the nation. We lobby and fight for homeownership rights. We’re a nonpartisan group and champion home ownership rights in the United States. We participate in new tax reform and regulations that affect homeowners both now and in the future. 

 

PUTTING YOU FIRST

WASHINGTON STATE REALTORS

WSR is the state level of which I (we) participate. Last year we lobbied (and won!) on the fight for excise tax. Now in affect in 2020, is the graduated scale tax, which is based on the value of your home, vs. being a flat rate across the board. The majority of homeowners won. We were able to win in part because of the strong voices of realtors and active stance we continue to take to protect homeowners. 

Here in Washington we have State Attorney and Legal hotlines that realtor members have access to 24/7. Our industry (like most!) is ever changing. Our State attorney teaches classes throughout the year of which all members have the opportunity to participate. And I do! 

 

STAYING UP-TO-DATE

TACOMA PIERCE COUNTY OF REALTORS (TPCAR)

TPCAR is local chapter that we (the Realtor’s of Pierce County) operate within here in Tacoma and Pierce County. Local knowledge, training and direct communication with policy makers gives us a strong voice within the community, again fighting for Homeowners every day. 

 

OUR CONTRIBUTIONS

REALTOR DUES

Realtor’s pay annual dues to fund the National, State and Local Realtor Association. These dues provide members of the party plenty of resources to current events which in return, keep us up-to-date with all things real estate related. In turn, we educate our clients and community to empower them to make the best decision both now and in the future. Learn more about what Realtors do that help Homeowners and the community at large, here.
