Keeping Informed on REALTOR® Issues

With every media outlet in Michigan reporting news with varying degrees of information, it's hard to keep up to date on the issues affecting the real estate industry. The advocacy page on the MAR Website contains useful information on matters affecting the real estate profession, whether it's specific legislation, or general economic prposals being circulated in Lansing, this is the place to stay informed.

Two Ways to Contribute:

  • RPAC1: proceeds are used to support candidates for local or state office only. RPAC1 can accept only personal REALTOR® member checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover or cash. Cash contributions cannot exceed $20.
  • RPAC2: proceeds are used to support or oppose ballot question initiatives in which MAR or its' local boards have an interest. RPAC2 can accept both personal and corporate contributions from REALTORS® and Affiliate member checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover or cash. Cash contributions cannot exceed $20.

As we look ahead to 2021, MAR remains committed to being a leading advocate for private property rights and the real estate industry.
