"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
- Winston Churchill
Few professionals understand the meaning of community more than a REALTOR®. The real estate community is broad. It includes your fellow REALTORS®, affiliated business professionals, your clients and the larger community in which we all live. As your local REALTOR® Association, GAAR is here to help you better connect with your community.
REALTORS® make an impact in the communities they work in. Below are some ways GAAR members can get involved in the community.
- Volunteer for a GAAR or SWMLS committee.
- Join affiliated groups of the larger real estate community.
- Network with other professionals.
- Advocate for the real estate industry, homeownership and private property rights.
- Donate your time, money or gifts to a local charity.
Below are links our local Signature and Good Neighbor Charities.
The REALTOR® Fund of GAAR provides a permanently sustainable fund to aid in creating adequate housing, building functioning cities, developing productive industries and preserving a healthful environment in Bernalillo, Valencia, Sandoval, and Torrance Counties.
Special fundraising events – like our Awards Gala, golf Tournament, Bowl-a-Thon and more – are fun and effective ways GAAR members give back to the community.
Every year, GAAR REALTORS® and Affiliates volunteer with others from across the country will unite for Make A Difference Day, one of the largest annual single-days of service nationwide.
Good Neighbors are REALTORS® and Affiliates that dedicate themselves to volunteer service. They donate gifts, money, and – most importantly – a lot of time to their charity.
