The San Antonio Board of REALTORS® is dedicated to protecting private property rights by advocating for REALTORS® and their clients. We work closely with city officials to monitor city ordinances, public hearings and meetings, and news and media in relation to REALTOR® issues as well as educate elected officials and REALTORS® about how public policy impacts the real estate economy. We utilize several forums, committees, subcommittees and task forces and a full-time staff to achieve this goal.
