GLAR is the source for your personal information on NAR, TAR, Supra and the MLS. Be sure to notify us in writing of any change to your home address, phone number or email.

MLS Tip for February:
Days on Market is calculated by list date to contract date, so be sure to always change your listing to Pending before showing as Sold to trigger the recalculation and DOM adjustment.
