I will come out and say it I am a registered Democrat and that is about the gist of it. I serve as the chair of our local real estate government affairs committee, the vice-chair (incoming chair) of our state associations legislative committee, and finance chair of our county democratic committee. I am also an RPAC trustee. All of this is great since in the real estate committees we do our best to stay non-partisan and address issues which effect property rights.
But boy can it be scary when you get in a car with potential clients and they begin asking those soft political questions. I just smile and tell the real estate committees I sit on but I am very careful not to let anymore slip. In the car with clients is not the place to spew our political beliefs, it is the place to talk up our cities and all the amenties they will offer the future homebuyer. I can tell you I have had a bloodied tongue on occasion just having to bite down on it. But at the end of the day when you have given it your all - you know it was the right thing to do and keep politics out of the home selling process.
