“I have been an enthusiastic RPAC supporter for many years during my career as a real estate industry executive leader and was first inducted into the RPAC Hall of Fame in 2015 when my voluntary contributions reached the first $25,000 mark,” Haggerty said. “RPAC is vital to our success. It’s the key to protecting homeownership and our industry’s interests. It brings me great satisfaction to be recognized by my colleagues and the Realtor® community for my contribution to RPAC knowing it helps to make our industry stronger.”
