Government Affairs

Many variables affect our Realtor® members’ ability to have success in their chosen profession. They work hard to acquire the skills necessary for success, but it is also true that an environment must exist that is conducive to being able to perform the job well and receive fair compensation.

In 1998, the Bucks County Association of Realtors®, along with two other local Realtor® associations, formed the Suburban Realtors® Alliance (SRA). SRA is your voice in municipal government in Bucks County. SRA is a subsidiary of BCAR and it exists to ensure that public policy decisions affecting real estate create a healthy climate for housing, our industry and the real estate consumers we serve. Some of the issues handled by SRA include:

  • Promotion of uniformity in local standards and consistency in enforcement - U & O ordinances, for example;
  • Protection of fundamental property rights;
  • Addressing quality of life issues that impact small business owners;
  • Avoidance of unnecessary duplication of existing fees, statutes or regulations.
