Welcome to the REALTOR® Association of Prince William Advocacy Page.  Membership with PWAR provides you with the tools to reach your full potential as a real estate professional. An important component of your membership is becoming involved with the association’s advocacy efforts. 

What is advocacy?

According to Webster’s dictionary advocacy is the act or process of supporting a cause or proposal.  For REALTORS® advocacy is supporting the members through our collective action to promote and promote YOUR interests before local, state, and federal governments. 

How does PWAR conduct advocacy?

PWAR builds and maintains relationships with elected officials, regardless of political party affiliation, to promote and protect REALTOR® interests in Prince William, Richmond and Washington D.C. Advocacy efforts are a combination of member involvement, supporting candidates for election and re-election, and lobbying government officials.

Why does PWAR need to promote and protect our interests?

Real Estate transactions account for more than $1.15 Trillion Dollars of economic activity representing more than 6 percent of the Gross Domestic Product.  A healthy real estate sector is critically important to the overall health of the United States economy.  The vast scale of the real estate economy makes it a target for legislative and regulatory proposals on every component of the transaction.  This scrutiny creates legislative and regulatory proposals that might be harmful to your business.  It is our local, state, and federal advocacy efforts that identify harmful from helpful.  REALTOR® advocacy means supporting the helpful and defeating the harmful.
