Creating a "Culture" of Advocacy

As one of the largest trade associations in Oregon – with nearly 16,000 members – we strive to protect private property rights and to ensure that homeownership is in reach for all families. To accomplish these goals, REALTORS® throughout Oregon are making a difference by being involved and actively volunteering politically to strengthen Oregon's housing market.

The Oregon Association of REALTORS® Public Policy Department advocates before the Oregon Legislature and state regulatory agencies to support legislation and regulations that strengthen housing affordability and attainability. The Association also strives to defeat legislation and regulations that negatively impact the housing market and is committed to protecting buyers and sellers to preserve the dream of homeownership.
