RPAC

What ORPAC Does for You

  • Protects your Business
  • Promotes Homeownership
  • Preserves Private Property Rights

The Basics

  • REALTOR® associations were created more than a hundred years ago as a way to unify real estate professionals and advocate for the industry on the legislative level; this led to the creation of RPAC in 1969
  • Oregon REALTORS® PAC (ORPAC) Trustees decide which candidates to financially support based on the candidate's position on issues impacting the real estate industry
  • An investment in RPAC is an investment in your business — just $15 can make a difference!
