Government Affairs

New Jersey Realtors® has your back.

When it comes to protecting private property rights and the real estate industry, NJ Realtors® is the organization of choice. As the voice for real estate in New Jersey, we are strong advocates for public policy that encourages residential and commercial property ownership to support communities. Whether it’s a local, state, or federal issue, if it involves the real estate industry, NJ Realtors® is fighting to protect the real estate industry and the rights of private property owners.


We work with local boards and associations in conjunction with municipalities to ensure smooth transactions for your business—start to finish.


There's a reason we're headquartered in Trenton—we believe in the power of proximity and we work hard at developing and maintaining relationships.


Our partners at the National Association of REALTORS® have our backs like we've got yours—if it's federal, we'll work with them to craft a plan for success.

"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about." Margaret Wheatley
