Thank you to our 2017  RAF Contributors!

The REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) helps to protect private property rights, homeownership, and YOUR business. With potential tax reform in Congress that would increase the taxes on homeowners nationally at an average $815 annually, it is now more important than ever to contribute to the RAF. We have successfully fought back against taxes on your commission and unnecessary fees on home buyers because of the efforts of our members. On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are recognizing those members and giving a very special thank you for their 2017 voluntary contributions to the REALTOR® Action Fund.

Sincerely,

Neil Collins
CEO
Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS®

P.S. If you have not made a contribution this year you can do so here.
