WEEKLY UPDATE
05/17/2020

Did you attend the 2020 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings? What did you learn or take away from the sessions? 

Personally we are loving the NAR360 opening!


Our new reality is reframing what it means to be together. Our home is everything now. It's our office. It's our gym. It's our children's classroom and their playground. Our new restaurant is our kitchen. 

We've had to invent new ways to love, and new ways to spend time together. We've had to rethink how we do business, and what is essential, and remake our space out of pixels, so we can still create something new when every day feels the same.

That's Who We R. 

The GDWCAR building is closed to members and is open by appointment only. All REALTOR® Store transactions will be handled over the phone, with a retail-to-go model. Some staff will continue to work remotely, we will continue to handle business through emails and phone calls only.

Our hours of operation will remain 8:30 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday.

Any event updates or changes to services will be posted on gdwcar.com/coronavirus
