What we do

The Real Estate Council of San Antonio is a professional organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities for real estate professionals in the San Antonio area and advocating for public policy.

Public Advocacy

When we say a better San Antonio for everyone, we mean EVERYONE. Our policy efforts are to ensure a healthy economy and enhanced quality of life in the San Antonio area. Here are some key examples of our advocacy efforts in the community:

Industry Impact

As the economy recovers, San Antonio should see continued growth for the near-term, as the “value proposition” has become attractive for both individuals and companies.

The impact of the development sector in San Antonio has never been greater:

in Economic Activity
$ 0 B
in Worker Earnings
$ 0 B
Local Jobs
0 K+
in Local Tax Revenue
$ 0 M+

Community Impact

Development has been a leading component of economic expansion in San Antonio since 2010, and its impact on the local economy has reached an all-time high. In the process, the development industry has been instrumental in meaningful job creation for all residents of San Antonio regardless of education or professional backgrounds.

Solid population and employment growth suggests that the development forecast should remain positive over the longer-term – housing benefits from household formation and attractive interest rates, while job growth fuels the non-residential side!

RECSA Community Project program

Our program’s mission is to annually provide a tangible benefit to an active partner organization in the larger San Antonio community that is unique to the skill sets of our members being from the local real estate industry.

Scholarships

Every year RECSA awards scholarships to young leaders in our community.
