SEVRAR CELEBRATES SUMMER IN ARIZONA AND INVESTS IN RAPAC WITH ‘HOT SUMMER NIGHTS”

This is the first article in an ongoing series designed to highlight the great work and successes of the local associations. The first post appears courtesy of Matt Ortega, Director of Government Affairs at SEVAR. If you have a story of your local association demonstrating leadership and would like to be features in The Arizona REALTOR® Voice, please email your story to voice@aaronline.com.

On August 21, SEVRAR held its end of summer celebration with “Hot Summer Nights.” Our follow-up to our successful “White Party” last September, “Hot Summer Nights” enhanced the entertainment and value for SEVRAR members while raising over $22,000 for the REALTORS® of Arizona Political Action Committee (RAPAC).  Our primary entertainment was “Dueling Pianos” featuring two very talented musicians who brought their special brand of musical expertise and audience engagement to our members.  Additionally there was a buffet of delicious food, a ring toss where winners won bottles of wine, a memorable photo booth, and both a silent and live auction.

While SEVRAR’s goal was to provide our members with a fun and relaxing evening, we also supported our fund raising efforts for RAPAC, our voice of advocacy at the local, state and national level.  In addition to SEVRAR’s and AAR’s government affairs efforts, RAPAC protects the livelihood of our REALTORS® and preserves home ownership.  Our bi-partisan “one voice” protects us from onerous local ordinances and regulations by helping us identify and support political candidates who understand and support REALTOR® priorities.  Our sincere thanks go to our RAPAC Chairman Jeff Murray, Vice Chair Julie Quesada and all the committee members, sponsors and members who made the evening a great success.

The Five Ws of RAPAC

“RAPAC” may be a term you’re already familiar with and understand its value to our industry. It may be a term you’ve heard mentioned at various REALTOR®-related events, but aren’t too familiar with. Or, it may be that the word RAPAC incites complete and utter bewilderment for you. If you fall into the latter category, read on. This is the: who, what, where, when and why of RAPAC.

Let’s first begin with a brief introduction. RAPAC stands for the REALTORS® of Arizona Political Action Committee. Today, virtually every special interest group in America has a PAC, and the REALTORS® of Arizona are no different. RAPAC is a nonprofit, unincorporated group that allows REALTOR® members to collectively and effectively participate in political affairs. RAPAC is not affiliated with a political party and is non-partisan in its support of candidates. Simply put, RAPAC is the best way to protect your business. Now let’s dive in.

Who supports RAPAC?

RAPAC is made up of voluntary investments from REALTOR® members all across the state.

What does investing in RAPAC do for me?

Your investment in RAPAC safeguards your business and our industry as a whole. Arizona real estate faces many issues that need support from pro-business/pro-real estate lawmakers. These issues range from HOA reform, water rights, property taxes and preserving the rights of property owners to name a few. Here are some recent legislative wins that could not have happened without AAR members’ investment in RAPAC.

Where does my investment in RAPAC go?

Your investment in RAPAC goes towards educating Arizona lawmakers on the issues that keep you up at night. Through your RAPAC dollars, AAR can support pro-real estate lawmakers and guarantee that no decision is made that will affect our industry, good or bad, until our voice is heard.

Investments can be made to your local association, directly to the Arizona Association of REALTORS®, and to the National Association of REALTORS®. The only acceptable way to contribute to RAPAC is by money drawn from personal funds.

When should I invest?

RAPAC investments are accepted at any time throughout the year. We do understand that for some contributing money to any sort of cause may not always be in your budget. One time to consider contributing is right after you’ve had a successful close. Or have one less Starbucks a week and at the end of the month you’ll have enough money set aside to contribute. Even a minimum donation of $30 per member, per year can do so much. When all things are considered, $30 is a small investment for such a large return – protecting your business!

Most importantly, why should you invest in RAPAC?

The Arizona Association of REALTORS® and RAPAC want to help you make more money, keep more of what you make, reduce your liability and protect you from any undue burdens that will affect your business. Investing in RAPAC means protecting your professional rights.

In order to affect legislation, we must be proactive and support the best. With your minimum contribution of $30, we can raise thousands of dollars to be stronger than ever!

Contributions to RAPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal or otherwise affecting your membership rights. Seventy percent of each contribution will be sent to Arizona PAC for state and local activities. Contributions to National RPAC are charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C 441a. Contributions are not deductible for Federal income tax purposes.

RAPAC Major Investors Spend One-On-One Time with Legislators

Recently, AAR members attended several events where they had one-on-one time with legislators. On Monday, March 17, RAPAC Major Investors and members of the associations Legislative Committees spent an intimate evening at the Phoenix Art Museum with members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives. Legislators in attendance included Senators Andrea Dalessandro and Barbara McGuire and Representatives John Kavanagh, Jeff Dial, and Warren Petersen, among others.

On Friday, March 21, AAR joined the Arizona Multihousing Association, Arizona Rock Products Association, Home Builders Association of Central Arizona, NAIOP, Rose Law Group and SAHBA, in hosting a Republican Gubernatorial Candidate forum. This event featured Republican Gubernatorial primary candidates: Ken Bennett, Doug Ducey, Christine Jones, Scott Smith, Al Melvin and Frank Riggs.

The Payoff of Participation

When Kent Simpson, a Tucson REALTOR® with Tierra Antigua Realty, traded in late nights and long hours managing bars and restaurants for late nights and long hours as a real estate professional, he did so mainly to assist his family with better access to land and property information. But, he soon realized that he got a lot more out of real estate the more he put in.

Kent 1100x1037Since 2007, Simpson has immersed himself in real estate, built a nationwide network of professional contacts and dedicated his free time to volunteering for causes that matter most to him. In return, he’s received unprecedented access to what he refers to as “business intelligence,” that gives him a strong leg-up on his competition. “Last year was the first year I volunteered with AAR,” said Simpson. “As REALTORS®, we are constantly fighting battles that could have far-reaching implications. I wanted to have a say in what happens in my industry.”

State-Level Participation

Simpson is an active member on the AAR Legislative Policy Committee. During the legislative session, he spends approximately six to seven hours a week reviewing and researching upcoming legislation and bills that are introduced. “[The committee] takes a look at policies that could have an effect on REALTORS®… things like private property rights, HOAs and water and land issues. Then, we decide what action to take on these issues.”  He also serves as a RAPAC trustee, evaluating state-level candidates and their positions on REALTOR® issues.

National Participation

On a national level, Simpson is a NAR Director and member of the Federal Finance and Housing Committee. In this capacity, Simpson has the opportunity to take a look at NAR policies and proposals and make decisions that affect all REALTORS®. Recently, he was instrumental in the decisions to allow REALTOR.com to expand what properties are allowed on its site, as well as the decision to increase the REALTOR® brand by investing in the new NAR headquarters building in Chicago.

The Payoff 

But, what does all this volunteering get him? According to Simpson, it has enhanced his business quite a bit. “My involvement in AAR and NAR has given me increased credibility with my clients,” said Simpson. “[Through volunteering] I have advanced knowledge about things that could affect my clients’ purchasing decisions and because of that I’m able to be a sounding board for them.” Simpson also adds that there are other benefits to getting involved. “Another benefit is the opportunity to build a large network of referral partners, “ said Simpson. “Getting to know REALTORS® from around the state helps me locate properties for my buyers” and vice versa.

Simpson also devotes his time to the Downtown Tucson Merchant’s Association, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Arizona Forward. You can keep up with him on his blog, Tucson Kent’s World.
