A partner who promotes the value of using a REALTOR®
One of PAR's key goals is to help our members gain and maintain a competitive advantage in the market by helping consumers understand the value of buying or selling property using a REALTOR®. We do this through the consumer resources on this website, including information about how and why to choose a REALTOR®.
Protecting REALTORS® in the political/legislative arena
PAR, AAR, and NAR help ensure that laws are favorable to your business and to the housing market. We have a strong, powerful political voice in the halls of local, state, and national governments to:
battle tax increases on your hard-earned commissions
retain the mortgage interest deduction for homeowners
keep property taxes and real estate fees at affordable levels for home buyers, sellers, and owners
PAR will continue to exercise our strong political voice in Phoenix and Maricopa County, protecting the interests of REALTORS® property owners, buyers, and sellers. Learn about our political advocacy >
