NAR Launches an Alliance for Property Owners

The alliance operates independently as “the new amplified voice of nearly 79 million property owners across the country who want a say in Washington on critical issues.”

WASHINGTON – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) launched the American Property Owners Alliance, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that will advocate for millions of property owners across the country on federal legislation, policies and regulations that affect ownership.

“The Alliance is the new amplified voice of nearly 79 million property owners across the country who want a say in Washington on critical issues,” says Kevin Sears, director and treasurer of the APOA. “We’re a diverse group that is ready to be a force in Washington.”

NAR primarily funds the alliance, but it will operate independently with its own board of directors and separate bylaws.

Part of APOA’s main mission is to keep property owners informed of federal legislative and regulatory issues that affect ownership. It covers ownership of all property – regardless if homes, land, and commercial real estate. APOA is focused solely on the federal level.

“Property ownership is essential to strong communities throughout the country,” Sears said in a statement. “The Alliance will foster and defend property ownership in communities through educating property owners about federal issues and mobilizing advocates throughout the United States to secure those rights and interests.”
