Staff Liaisons

NJ Realtors® has dedicated one government affairs staff member to each board/association throughout the state so they can play a stronger role in supporting issues that impact you on the municipal, county, and regional levels. Your local board’s dedicated state staff member serves as a liaison between state and local issues and are able to assist with all of your government affairs needs.


Some of the services offered to you on the local level include:

  • Local issue assistance
  • RPAC presentations
  • Phone bank coordination
  • Meetings with legislators
  • Political advocacy
  • Grant application assistance
  • Government affairs updates
  • RPAC fundraisers


If you know of an issue in your region that is affecting Realtors®, private property, or housing, we encourage you to reach out to your local board or your staff liaison from the association and get started.
