The California Association of REALTORS® OPPOSES Senate Bill 1105, authored by Senator Ben Hueso, and Senate Bill 679, authored by Senator Sydney Kamlager, which would lead to new property taxes, making getting into and keeping a home more expensive and difficult, pushing homeownership out of reach for many of California's working families. We need YOUR help to STOP these bills!

Join by October 31!

On behalf of Orange County REALTORS® we would like to express our deepest condolences to the people of Ukraine who have lost their lives, their homes, and their sense of security while protecting their country from the Russian invasion.
