May 5, 2020 President’s Message

Dear Members,

Wanted to give you a quick update on what we are working on towards hopefully an official opening on May 9. GAR is taking this time to prepare everyone so we can get back to business as safely as possible.

GAR is preparing COVID-19 addenda and disclosures for buyers/tenants and sellers/landlords. These addenda are for showings to advise the risks of infection and that all parties are aware. It will be a hold harmless addendum that has been reviewed by the GAR board and it is now with our attorney.

GAR has sent in our final draft of the safety guidelines and protocols for offices and showings. These will indicate steps we need to take, such as sanitizing lockboxes, frequently touched items and the like. It is a working document, subject to change and also final attorney review. It is however in front of the governor as part of our submission.

A COVID-19 informational packet will be compiled and provided for all brokers for dissemination to the members. This will have NAR COVID-19 informational flyers which we will also be adopting. We will provide either an FAQ or informational messages/newsletters/video(hopefully) so members can reference when needed.

We will be sharing these with the members as soon as we can and will also provide updates as they become available.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Clare Delgado
2020 President, Guam Association of REALTORS®
