New York State Travel Advisory - Executive Order Signed June 25, 2020
In response to increased rates of COVID-19 transmission in certain states within the United States, and to protect New York’s successful containment of COVID-19, the State has joined with New Jersey and Connecticut in jointly issuing a travel advisory for anyone returning from travel to states that have a significant degree of community-wide spread of COVID-19.

REALTOR ® Safety
One of our Rochester Realtors ® was the victim of an attempted robbery recently. The agent met a potential client for the first time in their home and was confronted after going inside the home. Thankfully, the agent is okay.

This is another warning that we can never be too careful and comes only a week after an agent in the Adirondack region reported an incident. Please make sure you are following all safety recommendations and procedures. One of the most important things you can do is make sure you meet potential clients for the first time in your office, or another public place, and verify their identity.

Please click the button below to view a number of Safety resources . There will be a Realtor ® Safety button on the GRAR Portal which links to this page very soon. Check back often for updates to the page.

Stay safe, and if you are uncomfortable in any way, trust your instincts.
Consumer Guides
NAR has compiled two brochures to assist consumers during these challenging times. The brochures are entitled:

  • Protect Your Investment, and
  • Protect Your Credit

Download the PDFs to share with your clients. They are available in both English and Spanish versions.
We will continue to provide more information as it becomes available. Reach out to us at with any questions and check your Member Portal for general news items.
