Jan 30, 2020

For the second consecutive year, Ohio REALTORS earned the prestigious Triple Crown for RPAC excellence from the National Association of REALTORS!

Ohio is one of only 29 State Associations to earn Triple Crown status in 2019, marking back-to-back years that Ohio was able to exceed goal in all of the award's categories:

  • Achieving 101 percent of our RPAC fundraising goal -- topping $1.1 million raised last year;
  • Surpassed our federal disbursement allocation goal -- reaching 149 percent;
  • Attaining 110 percent of our RPAC Major Investor goal -- with 374 REALTORS/staff investing $1,000 or more;
  • Meeting our goal of 36 President's Circle members; And, reaching a 37.03 percent RPAC participation level!

"Congratulations on winning this award,” said Sara Lipnitz, NAR’s RPAC Fundraising Trustees Committee Chair. “I’m proud of the work you do and have been so thrilled that I’ve had the opportunity to help with your advocacy efforts.

“Our strength comes from members and staff like you who help shape the future of our REALTOR Party efforts to Vote, Act and Invest on behalf of real estate,” Lipnitz added. “Know that you guys are running a great program.”

Credit for attaining the Triple Crown in back-to-back years goes to Immediate Past President Anjanette Frye, our 2019 Political Activity & RPAC Fundraising Committee Chair Cole Cannon and the thousands of REALTORS across our great state who made an investment in strengthening the industry’s voice at all levels of government, said Ohio REALTORS Chief Executive Officer Scott Williams.

"We’ve been able to raise the bar of RPAC excellence in Ohio because of the vision, persistence and dedication of AJ, Cole and, most importantly, the REALTORS who graciously shared their personal treasure to advance the industry’s mission to protect private property rights,” Williams said. “Achieving Triple Crown for the second straight year is a remarkable accomplishment, a testament to our organization’s land-standing leadership in strengthening RPAC.”
