The Tucson Association of REALTORS® (TAR) drew a crowd for their Major Investor event last week hosted by Nikki and Bruce Halle at their home in Marana.

Over 50 guests attended, and 10 REALTORS® became Major Investors on the spot, with a few more expected in the next week or so. Major Investors are REALTOR® Members and Affiliate Members who invest $1,000 within a year to the Arizona REALTOR® Party to help protect the real estate industry, their clients, and property owners. Each year the Arizona REALTOR® Party saves REALTORS® across the state thousands of dollars by advocating on their behalf at every level of government.

Just this last year, a single bill in Arizona would’ve required every REALTOR® to provide a DNA sample to the state and pay $250 to have it processed and retained. The Arizona REALTOR® Party stepped in and ensured the bill would not impact REALTORS® in any way by amending the legislation to exclude REALTORS® from the bill. And that was just one of the 1,318 bills introduced in the state legislature this year alone, with 177 directly impacting the real estate industry. It’s thanks to REALTORS® who invest, especially the Major Investors, who make this protection and advocacy possible.

Prior to last week’s event, TAR already had the most Major Investors in the state with 32, and they will continue to maintain their top spot with 42! The REALTORS® and professionals in Tucson understand the importance of protecting their business from harmful regulations from City Hall to Congress. TAR has worked hard to create a strong culture of engagement and investment and the results are paying off.

If you’d like to help protect your industry, you can invest here.

100 percent of your investment goes directly to advocacy and helping make it possible for your local association, the Arizona REALTORS®, and the National Association of REALTORS® to represent your interests in government.

Your association leaders and volunteers will be meeting Sept. 4th in Phoenix to improve their advocacy skills to better represent you, but they can’t do their best without your support.
