BLUFFTON, SC April 19, 2017—The National Association of Realtors® has announced that Randy Fix, a Realtor® from Bluffton, SC, has become a Sterling R Major Investor in the Realtors® Political Action Committee. RPAC is a national bipartisan grassroots-based political advocacy organization that works to protect the real estate industry and the dream of homeownership for Bluffton and Hilton Head Island residents and across the country.
Mr. Fix has supported RPAC for 10 years and has been a member of the National Association of Realtors® since 2005. Mr. Fix holds the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation, the Certified Negotiation Expert designation and the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource designation. Fix is a 1974 graduate of the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland and lives in Hampton Lake with his wife Dianne.
“I support RPAC because doing so is important to my profession,” said Fix.
Since 1969, RPAC has promoted the election of pro-real estate candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is to elect officials who understand and support the interests of real estate professionals and their home buying, selling and investing clients. RPAC uses its resources to seek to elect candidates that understand and support real estate, and to develop public policies that allow consumers to own homes and build their communities through commercial investment. Fix’s investment will be applied to supporting homeownership, commercial real estate transactions, and the very future of the real estate industry.
Current Realtor® priorities include working to preserve the Mortgage Interest Deduction and preventing the use of guarantee fees charged on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed loans to fund non-housing programs, which serves as a tax on consumers and prevents more qualified borrowers from becoming actual homeowners.
The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.2 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
