As the days get longer we start to see a promising outlook with respect to a return to more regular operations. While real estate has become busier, we have all worked hard to keep everyone involved in the real estate transaction safe during the pandemic, and we need to keep it going. As BCREA points out, REALTORS® should continue to prioritize health and safety and follow the guidelines outlined here.
Separately, we are happy to report that our new member orientation program launched successfully, and it was a pleasure to welcome the newest members from KAR and KADREA over Zoom a few weeks back. Check out our new section in the newsletter to help us welcome our newbies.
Before I sign off I’d like to ask for your help: I know you’re all very busy but we would really appreciate your feedback on a proposed initiative spearheaded by KAR and KADREA. A survey link will be emailed to you within the next few days and we need feedback to determine the viability of this project.
Keep reading to learn more about what’s going for KAR members this month.
2021 KAR President
