The GAR RECOMMENDED PROCEDURES AND SAFE PRACTICES is a minimum standard list of guidelines and may be subject to change as needed.
There was a previous version sent to the Governor's Economic relief panel that may differ somewhat from this list. Please use the version that GAR officially provides you as a guide that is attached here as it is the latest version. Your office may have more specific protocols and you may wish to adhere to those in addition to what is provided by GAR. This is your option as long as the safety for agents, staff, clients and the public are priority.
Further, take the time to prepare your respective offices if you have not done so already. Sanitize where it is needed. Have your plan in place for how many people will be inside using social distancing measures, possible hours of operation and other more detailed safety protocols as you see fit.
Information will change and GAR will be keeping everyone updated - please refer to our website at www.guamrealtors.com as often as necessary or contact GAR Office. While we have been allowed to return to work with limitations, please be mindful that it will not be business as it was before. We must be vigilant with following protocols and other safety requirements to ensure that we contain and maintain the further spread of the COVID-19. It is up to us to continue to be responsible and safe.
Remember, any Governor Order mandates will always supersede the guidelines provided by GAR, as we, the Association, will always endeavor to be compliant of the law.
I thank you all for your time and please let us know if there are any questions you may have.

Statement from NAR President Vince Malta
The shocking, senseless death of George Floyd is tragic. Our deepest sympathies are with the Floyd family and other families who understand and feel this pain and grief. Our neighbors in the communities where we work and live across America should feel safe and free from discrimination.
As longtime champions of fair housing, equality and inclusion are among NAR’s most cherished values. NAR is committed to leading the way on policies that address racial injustice and that build safe and inclusive communities. Building the future begins with equal access to housing and opportunity for all.
We appreciate all you do as REALTORS® to listen, learn, and work with others to be a part of the solution. As leaders in your communities, America’s 1.4 million REALTORS® are active participants in promoting equality, inclusion, and acceptance. We welcome your input and thoughts on how we can improve our communities together.
Here is what’s happening in Guam...
