Recently a task force was appointed to find ways to promote the value of REALTORS® to the public, and internally to members and licensees who are not members, or whose memberships have lapsed. A page has been created on the GAR Web site for this campaign, called The REALTOR® Difference. We presently have several scripts for members’ use in dealing with the public, with other members, and more.
Coming soon are flyers that members can use to promote “The REALTOR® Difference” that detail facts such as production, legislative advocacy, professional development, and more. We will update this site in the coming months with other helpful information and tools to help our members promote the REALTOR® organization at the grassroots level.
