Florida Realtor® Recognized Nationally for Protecting, Investing in Real Estate Industry

Vero Beach, FL - September 16, 2017—The National Association of Realtors® has announced that Vance Brinkerhoff, a Realtor® from Vero Beach, FL, has become a Sterling R Major Investor in the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC). RPAC is a national bipartisan grassroots-based political advocacy organization that works to protect the real estate industry and the dream of homeownership for Treasure Coast residents and across the country.

Vance Brinkerhoff has supported RPAC for seventeen years and has been a member of the National Association of Realtors® since 2000. His professional certifications include Negotiation Specialist, Relocation Specialist, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Cartus Network Affinity Specialist, Coldwell Banker Previews International Specialist, New Home Sales Professional, e-Marketing Specialist, Residential Construction, 203K Specialist, and he holds the designation of an Accredited Buyer’s Representative. Affiliated with the National, Florida, and Indian River Associations of Realtors, Vance also has been inducted into the prestigious Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society, the International President’s Circle, and the International President’s Elite. Vance Brinkerhoff graduated Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and lives in Vero Beach, Florida with his family.

“I support RPAC because doing so is important to my profession,” said Brinkerhoff.

Since 1969, RPAC has promoted the election of pro-real estate candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is to elect officials who understand and support the interests of real estate professionals and their home buying, selling, and investing clients. RPAC uses its resources to seek to elect candidates that understand and support real estate and to develop public policies that allow consumers to own homes and build their communities through commercial investment. Brinkerhoff’s investment will be applied to supporting homeownership, commercial real estate transactions, and the very future of the real estate industry.

Current Realtor® priorities include working to preserve the Mortgage Interest Deduction and preventing the use of guarantee fees charged on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed loans to fund non-housing programs, which serves as a tax on consumers and prevents more qualified borrowers from becoming actual homeowners.
