"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. 

Making Connections

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.
