Richmond association victory featured by NAR

Congrats to the Richmond Association of REALTORS® which just saw its (successful) campaign to help fund area public schools featured on NAR’s Realtor® Action Center as a “Realtor® Party Success Story.


In Richmond, VA, REALTORS® have long understood the strong correlation between good schools and home values. Last year, they had to fight for it. The 4,000-member Richmond Association of REALTORS® put a $95,000 Issues Mobilization Grant from NAR to work on a campaign to use a restaurant meals tax on food and beverages to help fund public schools. Working with other community groups, their successful campaign prevented drastic cuts to the school system budget.
