If you’re in real estate, politics is your business. Legislation and regulation affect many of the things you do as a real estate agent every day. Did you use the statewide contract for one of your real estate deals? Quote an approved source for square footage in a commercial transaction? Did you know that OAR's 2012 Broker Relationships bill will simplify your role and help consumers understand your responsibilities? These are just a few things that are a direct result of the lobbying efforts of your Association.
