More Information on the REALTOR® Champions Program



REALTOR® Champions pledge to support and defend the rights and interests of property owners and advocate on behalf of the members of the Connecticut Association of REALTORS®, Inc.


REALTOR® Champions are an elite group of CAR members who stand ready to move quickly to promote or defend property rights at a moments notice. By pledging to be a REALTOR® Champion, you will help strengthen the efforts of the State Association and you will be the link that helps home buyers and sellers of real estate defend their constitutional rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness in the realm of property ownership.


REALTOR® Champions are expected to contribute in the following ways, at a minimum:

  • Be familiar with priority issues. CAR's Legislative & Political Affairs Committee determines what issues have the greatest impact on the real estate industry and whether CAR should support or oppose particular legislation;

  • Help communicate CAR's advocacy efforts to colleagues, clients and fellow local Board members as necessary;

  • Be a strong political advocate for the real estate industry and property owners on the local, state and national levels of government; Act on Calls-For-Action launched by CAR and NAR;
  • Champions support candidates for public office who advocate for the betterment of property owners with their voluntary grassroots efforts. Click on the following links to learn about:


REALTOR® Champions will receive support in order to successfully carry out their responsiblities. Champions will receive legislative updates on the current issues and Calls-For-Action which will explain how to take action on an issue*. Champions can call upon CAR's Issues Advocacy Committee members or CAR staff for assistance if necessary.

*Email is CAR's preferred method of communication. Please be sure your local Board (and NRDS) has your most current email address.
