The KEY to your HOME!

Government Affairs

Our Government Affairs program was founded upon the principle that active involvement in our government and in our communities is the responsibility of all citizens and our industry. Our collective strength is far greater than the efforts of a single individual.
Through cooperation with public officials, organizations, community groups, and other interested parties, the Reading Berks Association of REALTORS® works to ensure that public policy decisions are fair to the real estate industry and the clients we serve.
