GMAR Weekly Email Digest: 11/12/2018
Hello everyone,
 
This past weekend I was in Boston for the National Association of Realtors Conference and Expo. It was awesome to see many of you there as well! I hope you were able to enjoy some top-notch speakers and networking (and Italian food). 
 
A couple reminders of things to mark on your calendar... If you haven't already done so, make sure you pay your board dues by November 30 th . There is a late fee starting on December 1 st ! Also, save the date of November 29 th for our annual Holiday Party! We will be at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee once again, to welcome our 2019 Chairwoman, Amy Curler. You won't want to miss it! You can register here .
 
Here's to a solid end of the year in sales!

GMAR VETERAN'S SUPPORT GROUP NEEDS YOUR HELP
The GMAR Veteran’s Support Group is again helping the Milwaukee Homeless Veteran’s Initiate (MHVI) with collecting the following items to help support our veterans in need.
Hats
Gloves
Scarves
New socks for men, women, and children. 
 
MHVI will gladly accept gently used items. They only ask that if items are used, that they are washed before we distribute them-especially to children.
 
You can drop off the items at the GMAR office, 12300 W. Center St. You may also drop off items at the MHVI, 6300 W. National Ave.

GMAR WEBINAR: HOW TO USE SENTRILOCK LOCKBOXES
Please join us for a webinar on Thursday, November 15 at 11am central.
 
Stacie Purko, with the GMAR, will go through the basics of using the SentriLock system and take questions.
 
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Brought to you by GMAR

If you were not able to attend the Sentrilock training, you can click here to sign up for a time to pick up your credentials and any lockboxes that you are eligible for. We will also go over how to use the system at this time. Sentrilock went live on October 1st.

If you need additional lockboxes, you can come to the GMAR office: 12300 W. Center St., Wauwatosa, M-F 8:30am-5:00pm. We will need to verify that you have an active listing so please either bring your signed listing contract or make sure it is showing in the MLS. Lockboxes are only provided for active listings that we can verify (we will not be giving lockboxes for vacant land, rental or commercial properties).

We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions on electronic lockboxes.
