Real Estate Board of New York
The Real Estate Board of New York, or REBNY, is a trade association that lobbies on behalf of the real estate industry in the city. The board, established in 1896, has about 16,000 members and these include real estate brokers, property owners and developers, industry lawyers, and architects. The organization collects about $6 million a year in dues. Since 2014, John H. Banks III has served as president. He replaced Steven Spinola, who had served as REBNY president in since 1986. The organization strives to ensure that rent regulations and various tax breaks, such as the 421a tax abatement program, benefit developers and it promotes other industry-backed government policies. It also backs political candidates it expects will favor real estate companies. The majority of its members are residential real estate agents. The group offers professional education programs, including state-certified required courses for licensing. REBNY’s annual banquet may be the most important networking event in the industry. -GB
