Hello Valued REALTOR® Members,
The November 2022 elections are fast approaching and there are many important races from the top of the ticket on down that will impact the real estate industry, property owners, small business owners, and the overall economy for years to come. Regardless of which political party you most identify with, we ask you to keep the REALTOR® party in mind. There is no better example of the power of the REALTOR trademark than when individual members step forward to support candidates with their votes and their personal contributions.
Over the next few months, candidates running for office at the national and state level, or groups such as republican or democratic committees, may approach you asking for a financial contribution. If you are so inclined, please consider contributing to them through the WRA Direct Giver Program. It is the only state-sponsored program in the country that allows members the option to contribute to candidates of their choosing and timing while emphasizing that they are a REALTOR®.
It couldn’t be easier to participate. WRA takes payments of $100 or more and puts them into your very own account where you have complete control- you say who, you say when you say how much. Whomever you direct money to, it is an individual contribution, the same as if you write out a personal check to them. (You just don’t have to find an envelope, find the mailing address, pay for postage – we take care of that!) The difference? The check also says you are a REALTOR®.
If you have any questions, please contact me at 414.778.4929 or
If you have sellers who currently have a family member serving in the armed forces, the GMAR has a limited supply of Military Service Flags you may offer them!
The flags are sponsored by American Pacific Mortgage. If you'd like a flag, simply call the GMAR office at 414-778-4929 or email to reserve.
