The California Desert Association of REALTORS® consistently advocates for the interests of its members and their clients, both at the government level and at the local community level.

It is the objective of the California Desert Association of REALTORS® (CDAR) Government Affairs Department to:

  • Support candidates, who understand the concerns and needs of CDAR Members, in local government elections.
  • Support the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) in their efforts to pass legislation that is: REALTOR®-friendly, protects private property rights, supports homeownership, and promotes an economic environment in which businesses and the real estate industry can thrive (and to oppose legislation that does not accomplish these aims).
  • Keep CDAR members informed about pending real estate-related legislation and regulatory changes that impact their business.
  • Educate CDAR members about how to become involved in the political process when it comes to critical legislative initiatives that affect CDAR members and their clients.

In addition to its engagement in the political process, a major role of the Government Affairs Department is to forge partnerships with local organizations and support programs that have the potential to expand housing opportunities and build stronger communities in the Coachella Valley.
