Record year leads to national honors

Congratulations, Texas REALTORS®. The National Association of REALTORS® recently announced that Texas earned NAR’s prestigious Triple Crown Award for 2016.

This annual RPAC (called “TREPAC” in Texas) award recognizes excellent performance in total dollars raised, number of major investors ($1,000+), number of President’s Circle investors, and PAC participation.

“Texas REALTORS® invest in TREPAC because we see how valuable it is for protecting our business,” says 2016 TREPAC Chairman Myra Oliver. “I want to thank everyone who invested in 2016 for helping TREPAC win the Triple Crown award and make 2016 our highest year on record. I encourage all Texas REALTORS® to invest in our business for years to come.”

Texas will be recognized for this achievement in May at the REALTORS® Legislative Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Burleson sets RPAC Hall of Fame record

Dallas REALTOR® Mary Frances Burleson has become the first Texas REALTOR® to invest more than $125,000 in TREPAC/RPAC. Burleson, the 2002 chairman of the Texas Association of REALTORS®, will be inducted into the RPAC Hall of Fame for her achievement.

Burleson says she has made investing in TREPAC/RPAC an integral part of her business. “I invest in TREPAC/RPAC because government touches every aspect of Texas real estate,” Burleson says. “Investing sends a clear message that you’re a strong advocate for Texas REALTORS®, real estate consumers, and homeowners.”
