Get Involved

I am the REALTOR® Party of California and I Vote!

 California REALTORS® cannot afford to ignore what occurs in the halls of government because Real Estate is one of the most regulated industries at the local, state and federal level. This is why every REALTOR® needs to be counted on Election Day!

Through your vote, C.A.R.’s ability to protect your business is strengthened. When REALTORS® are engaged in the electoral process, elected officials listen to our concerns.


How to Respond to Red Alerts and Calls for Action

On occasion, C.A.R. asks REALTORS® to call their legislators to support or oppose proposed bills through Red Alerts and Calls for Action. However, some members may be a bit reluctant to pick up the phone to call their legislator’s office, fearing that they may not know what to say or that the process takes a long time. C.A.R. has produced a short video to show how easy it is to respond to Red Alerts and Calls for Action by making a quick phone call.

Did you know there are more than 36,000 REALTOR® members in our state not registered to vote.
Getting involved is key to protecting the issues important to the industry.

Check the Voter Registration page often for upcoming election events and dates.
Your vote matters for home ownership!

REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF)

What is the REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF)? RAF is a vital service for YOU and YOUR business. Did you know that 30% of your RAF contribution supports local issues that will affect your livelihood?  By contributing to the REALTOR® Action Fund, you are helping to protect private property rights through C.A.R.’s lobbying efforts, and local issues and candidate campaigns.  Your participation will keep this going!  Contributions to the  REALTOR® Action Fund have stopped:

  • Point of sale mandates that could have cost the homeowner $1000s of dollars reducing their equity or may have even prevented the sale from going through.
  • Direct taxing of REALTOR® commissions and other services related to the transaction.
  • Political candidates who are against building housing and against REALTOR® issues.

Together we can successfully educate and encourage REALTORS® to contribute to the REALTOR® Action Fund.  The REALTOR® Action Fund Blueprint to Fundraising guide

is designed to provide you with a step by step guide to fundraising, including collateral materials you need to educate and inform your members on the importance of the REALTOR® Action Fund.

On behalf of the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.), the REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) leadership wants to thank you for your support of the REALTOR® Action fund and helping C.A.R. and your local Association reach our yearly goals! We appreciate your commitment to organized real estate and support of the Political Programs. If you have any questions, please contact our office staff for more information.
