National Association of Realtors Lobbying Stats, 2011

By
Real Estate Agent with JustListedKnoxville.com / Signature Homes

The National Association of Realtors represents the nation’s real estate industry. While the bulk of its issues tend to deal with property management and control, the group also lobbies members of Congress and the administration on virtually every issue facing business, including health care reform, bankruptcy legislation and tax cuts. One of its biggest issues in recent years has been a move toward deregulating the financial services industry. For years, real estate agents have successfully warded off attempts by banking interests to delve into the sale and management of property. One of the keys to the group’s success: It supports Democrats and Republicans almost equally. Lobbying Stats, 2011

Total spent on lobbying: $10,153,173
Number of lobbyists hired: 33
Number of current revolving door personnel: 5
Number of bills mentioned: 104

Fascinating. One of my goals for the coming year is to become more involved with GCAAR (Greater Capital Area Assn. of Realtors) and to stay on top of this information. I do hope that Dodd Frank and other huge issues are going to be confronted using our dollars and our voices.
