Local realtors board gets statewide recognition

The Washington-Beaufort County Board of Realtors recently received three REALTOR Political Action Committee Awards at the NC REALTORS inaugural gala held Jan. 16 at the Omni Charlotte Hotel. Because of The WBCBR’s contributions to RPAC for 2019, they reached an impressive 202% of their goal.

WBCBR was awarded the Triple Crown President’s Cup for Highest Participation Small Association Category/State Participation. In addition, this board also received the 2019 Perfect Participation Award for Overall State Participation with an impressive 104% of members participating . This means every single one of the WBCBR members invested $15 or more in NC REALTORS PAC in 2019.

Lastly, the 2019 Outstanding Performance award was received. We could not be more proud of the members of WBCBR for the culture they have created at their Board. The sole purpose of RPAC is to help elect real estate-friendly candidates to public office. RPAC backs candidates who understand and support the interests of NC REALTORS, regardless of a candidate’s party affiliation. RPAC backs candidates in primary, general, run-off and deficit elections.

RPAC is effective because it allows REALTORS to work with all parties to enact legislation that protects the real estate industry, current and future homeowners, the real estate-based economy and property rights. Not only is RPAC the most nonpartisan political action committee in the nation, it is the most successful.

Congratulations to all WBCBR members and thanks for your continued support.
