Serving Real Estate Professionals
and North Texas
Here's what's happening in April 2019!

From Our Association Executive
 Kim Lambert
We look forward to serving you in your business. This is a member-led Association. If you see a need that would benefit the majority of our members, let us know.

Our 2019 Board of Directors Executive Committee:
President: Traci Nicodemus - RE/MAX Cross Country
President-Elect: Bill Anderson , Ebby Halliday Realty
Secretary-Treasurer: Brenda Taylor , RE/MAX Advantage
Immediate Past President: Steven Walker , Keller Williams - DMN
A list of all our Directors and Committee Chairs can be found on our website at .


On March 1, GLAR members were emailed our first "Real Estate Pros in the Know" podcast - "Real Estate Trends" . Thank you to Brooke Hunt and Steve Etzel for their work. The monthly podcasts will be distributed for Members to use as another resource to show their clients/public that they are the EXPERTS in this field. REALTORS® know this community, know the city leaders, and have the best and most accurate real estate information. The podcast name was entered in our contest by Judy Jobin / Weichert REALTORS®-The Harrell Group, and chosen by the Board of Directors. Our next issue on April 1 will be "The Value of Using a REALTOR®" .

Our March 1 Top Golf TREPAC Major Investor lunch was a SUCCESS! Great fun for a greater purpose. Thank you to all who invest so wisely. An "OWN IT" coin was presented to Brandy Jett by Glynn Mosier , and one to Kim Lambert by David Alan Cox . The "OWN IT" coins are an initiative from NAR Immediate Past President Elizabeth Mendenhall, and presented to those in our industry who take ownership of their associations, bringing unique gifts and insights to the table and making positive changes to the REALTOR® organization. These are registered, then meant to pass along to others. Who will be the next two recipients of an OWN IT coin? Stay tuned!!

The Governmental Affairs Task Force, led by Chair Mark Wise, interviewed Candidates running for public office on March 4, 2019. With the Board of Directors' approval, GLAR will be supporting :

We thank Candidates for submitting questionnaires, going through our interview process, and joining us for a Member Mixer on February 21. Some of these positions were unopposed, but the Candidates chose to turn in responses so we would know where they stand on issues. Additionally, each Candidate was given the Texas REALTORS Legislative Priorities booklet for the 86th Legislature. We appreciate these Candidates' service to this community and look forward to working with them.

Did you know that each member is assigned a unique GLAR ID? Neither your license number nor NAR number, this 4 or 5 digit number is the number you will use to access your invoices and payments online. If you don't remember your number, you can use the link here to request it (you must use the email address that shows in the MLS)

MLS Tip for April:
Though it won't show transactions that were not listed in the MLS, it's easy to track your production in Matrix. Learn how here!

Second Quarter MLS Fee invoices were emailed on Feb. 21st and are due on or before Mar. 29, 2019. Remember - we do not keep credit card numbers on file. Click to pay online.

To avoid unnecessary late fees, be sure to check your email and contact me if you have any billing questions.

Have you seen the new Supra App? With new upgraded features, you may want to delete the old version and download the new version. How will you know which you have? Call me and I'll walk you through it! (Remember, even when using the App, the eKey fob is still necessary to access the non-bluetooth boxes)

Tax Tip: Active members may view and print their current and previous year invoices directly from the online system, using your GLAR ID. If you don't remember your ID, you may use the link on the login page to have it emailed to you. Be sure to input the email GLAR has on file.

We're steppin' into spring with many great opportunities for you in April! See links below. Be sure to check out our calendar on too!
