Update for October 26 and beyond

Its Fall!

We can't believe its almost November.  Fall this year is definitely different with COVID, but we hope you are still finding time to enjoy the things you love.  You might have to adjust your traditions  and expectations this year, but we can still enjoy Football, Fall Outings like Pumpkin Patches and Apple Picking, or spending time with family in the great outdoors.

With Fall time, PRAR is starting back it's classes and educational events for our members. We are still taking extra precautions for your safety on any in-person events, but we want to give you the resources you need to succeed in your business.  Make sure you are checking our website, Facebook page, and your email for the most up to date information.

Learn More HERE

NAR Would love your feedback or specific questions on these changes via email to professionalstandards@nar.realtor
