What do we do?

  • Complete policy research for IREM Members as requested
  • IREM government affairs staff monitors roughly 12,000-15,000 pieces of legislation introduced or pending in all 50 states.  This service helps Chapter Legislative Chairs monitor local legislation that may impact their business.
  • IREM monitors the U.S. Federal Register every day to stay abreast of federal agencies and rules and regulations that may potentially impact the industry.
  • IREM maintains a solid relationship with NAR and their government affairs staff.  This strong relationship allows up-to-the-minute information sharing.
  • Staff tracks national legislation and policy issues daily through various methods – Google alerts, reading The Hill, Washington Post Bloomberg, Politico and subscribing to “alerts” from various news sources.
  • The IREM Legislative and Public Policy Committee is instrumental in monitoring important legislative and regulatory matters that  are of interest to the membership.
  • And of course, IREM’s Government Affairs  staff is constantly reading, researching, and analyzing legislation and regulations that are of importance to the real estate management industry.
