Why RAF Matters – by Scott Dick

One of the most important services to you as an MCAR member is organized real estate representation at the local, state and federal level. Your contribution to the REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) ensures that you a have all the tools you need to protect yourself, your business and your clients from policy makers and local government staff who may not understand all the issues related to professional real estate.

Last year CAR saved REALTORS® $9,905 each; a pretty good return on the investment of an additional voluntary contribution of $49. We estimate the true cost of doing business at the local, state and federal level is $148 per year, but we are only asking for a voluntary additional contribution of $49. If you would like to discuss this further please email me Scott Dick Government Affairs Director (GAD) at scott@mcar.com or call 831-393-8677.
