About

Established in January 1998, the 11,000 member Suburban REALTORS® Alliance is a subsidiary corporation of the Bucks County, Montgomery County and Suburban West Associations of REALTORS® located in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Alliance is affiliated with the Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.

The mission of the Suburban REALTORS® Alliance is to ensure that municipal policy decisions affecting real estate create a healthy climate for housing, our industry and the real estate consumers we serve. The Alliance is a resource for our shareholder members, local government and elected officials, and consumers represented by our REALTOR® members.

In general, our REALTOR® members support local real estate laws and regulations that: Protect fundamental property rights; promote uniformity in local standards and consistency in enforcement; and avoid unnecessary duplication of existing fees, statutes or regulations.

Our objectives are accomplished through frequent staff and member interaction with state and local governments, elected officials, community groups, and other interested parties. Our members focus on getting involved with their elected officials and municipal governments at the local level - in the communities where they live, work and vote.

Issues of special interest to our members at the local level include: use and occupancy inspections and associated fees; professional disclosure; sign use; land use; rental property licensure; quality of life issues that impact small business owners; and other real estate-related ordinances. As a liaison between public officials and the real estate industry, we hope to work together to build our communities and ensure the availability of safe and affordable housing for all residents.
