MARCH 2019
Check out our new look!

Welcome to our very first REAL NOTES  newsletter! We are excited to launch this new monthly resource, which will be replacing the old "Grapevine" weekly newsletter. Our goal is to better engage our members and keep you informed of all the events and benefits for fellow REALTORS® while also saving you time. We will send additional communication throughout the month including important reminders, Member Spotlights, and more on an as-needed basis. 

We appreciate your feedback as we go through this transition period. Please t ake a look below, mark your calendars, and we look forward to connecting with you this month as we step into spring here in the Central Valley!

Cheers,
The FAR Team
