• The only way for your voice to be heard is to get involved.
  • Put on your good clothes, and come talk to politicians.

Why is it that, as agents, we will click on “the top five things you should never say at a Christmas party” or “the worst five things you’ve seen in a house,” but we won’t click on a politics-related post?

The argument I usually get is that it’s either not interesting or the Realtor is not interested. I get it. You work a hard job, and you’re looking to be entertained.

You know what? We do work a hard job, but that’s no reason to hide from politics.

Surprisingly, you probably don’t know everything I think because, contrary to popular belief, I don’t say everything on my mind — frankly, some of y’all can’t handle it. And I know there’s a lot of unheard voices out there.

But if you aren’t involved, how are we supposed to know what you think? So put on your good clothes, and come talk to politicians. The Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC) welcomes your voice, too.
