This is imporTanT. Take two minutes to understand the
Virginia Homeowners Alliance. It’s a major VAR initiative
launching this month, and its goal is to increase the
influence of REALTORS® in the realm of public policy.
30 seconds: What it is
The Virginia Homeowners Alliance is a free service
provided by REALTORS® to homeowners (and future
homeowners) that offers insight and information on a
wide variety of topics.
We believe that REALTORS® are in the perfect position
to engage homeowners and serve as a trusted, reliable
source of information on most things related to home
ownership, from maintenance tips to the political issues
affecting their communities.
In exchange, we hope to get them more involved in
shaping public policy in their neighborhoods, because
REALTOR® and homeowner concerns are often the same:
building strong communities, keeping taxes low and mak-
ing it easier to buy and sell homes in Virginia.
We give them practical information, and they lend us
their voice. Everyone wins.
30 seconds: What’s in it for you
We want to get all of Virginia’s REALTORS® on board,
and we think you’ll be glad you came. Here’s why.
1. It’s an incredible tool for keeping in touch with cur-
rent and past clients. What do you think they’d prefer,
another refrigerator magnet or recipe, or timely, useful
information about a proposed new regulation or tax
increase in their neighborhood?
2. Adding those homeowner voices to our own means we
can better advocate for policies in the state and local
legislatures — and that makes it easier for you to buy
and sell homes.
3. It’s a great way to build your career. It can help you get
to know the legislators on the state, local, and national
levels whose votes can affect your livelihood. And those
better connections and more experience are things that
will pay you back over and over.
4. You’re giving your clients access to a great (and free)
resource for insight and information on a wide variety
of topics, r
