"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.
