Key Contact Program

What is the Key Contact Program?

The Key Contact Program is a grassroots effort that benefits our industry by promoting the common interests of Realtors®, legislators and their constituents. Designed to foster long-term relationships between state legislators and individual Realtor® members, the program creates personal connections that help our industry. Members who become Key Contacts can:

  • Speak candidly and authoritatively about our association’s legislative views and concerns
  • Develop trusting, ongoing relationships that benefit legislators, their constituents, and Realtors®
  • Realtors® who participate in the Key Contact Program have the opportunity to become the voice of the Minnesota real estate community.
