Hello Everyone,
We are entering the Holiday season when the market usually slows down. But not this year. There are reports of a strong late fall market here, and all over the country. I hope we can all celebrate Thanksgiving with our families and not at a showing!
I would like to welcome the new and returning members to the GMAR Board of Directors. Congratulations to old friends Judy Hearst and Angela Walters, and new friends Tom McCormick and Suzanne Head. Their terms begin January 1st and run for three years.
Don’t wait to sign up for the GMAR’s annual Holiday Gala on Wednesday, December 1st. It’s back and will be better than ever! In addition to swearing in our new leadership team, we will be recognizing some truly amazing members:
Realtor® of the Year – Amy Curler, First Weber, Inc.
Dedicated Service Award – Rick Bohmann, Shorewest, Realtors
Lifetime Achievement Award – Chris Howard, Ogden & Company, Inc
Affiliate of the Year – Scott Newcomer, House to Home Inspections
Finally, the GMAR is once again holding a coat drive for the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (MHVI). New or used clean coats for men, women, and children are needed. New hats, gloves, and socks will also be accepted. You can drop off warm clothing at the GMAR or the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative. If you have any questions, please contact Scott Bush

Anna C. Severance, a beloved realtor from West Bend, passed away on October 16, 2021. Anna was a loving mother and had so much love for her two beautiful girls, Aveya and Milena. She cherished them more than anything in this world. The Anna Severance Motherhood legacy Trust will hold assets for the health, maintenance, support, and education of Anna's daughters Aveya and Milena. This will assist in fulfilling Anna’s dreams and goals for her children.

In addition, to its partnership with Feeding Wisconsin, the WRF provides financial support for relief efforts in response to natural disasters in Wisconsin. The WRF segregates a certain amount of funds raised through voluntary contributions on membership renewal dues forms to aid families and children impacted by natural disasters in Wisconsin. 

REALTORS® throughout Wisconsin should be proud to help these families in need. WRF chairman Mike Spranger encourages every member to keep the voluntary $20 contribution to the WRF on the dues statement so REALTOR® relief efforts like these can continue.
