The GAR office has uploaded the latest approved COVID forms on the GAR website.  Information may change quickly and as much as we will do our best to keep up with all the changes, it is incumbent upon each of us to practice safety and work responsibly.  

Please make sure to attend ONE of the Townhall training sessions as not only is it mandatory but they are information filled sessions to best prepare us during this still turbulent time.

Thank you and stay safe and well.

Sincerely,

Clare Delgado

Message from NAR

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.

Sincerely,



Vince Malta
President
