Greenwich REALTORS® Give Back to the Community

Be Homeful for the Holidays- last chance to contribute!
WOW! Thank you to all who have donated to the CT REALTORS® Foundation in partnership with the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness. Together, we've raised over $2650(!!) to help keep children and families safe at home this holiday season, and we delivered 80 Paddington Bears to local shelters. Overall, this heartwarming campaign has provided holiday cheer to more than 5,000 children living in CT shelters and has helped more than 1,000 families avoid the hardship of homelessness. There is still time to contribute to GAR's Team fundraising efforts!


Reminder: Masks/Face Coverings MUST be worn for all in-person showing activities
As we enter the winter season, and Covid-19 cases in our area continue to rise, please remain vigilant in wearing masks for any and all in-person showing activities, and in public as required by CT State Law. It is your responsibility as representatives for your buyer and seller clients to ensure that they also wear face coverings for any in-person showing activities. Please be sure to communicate any other showing instruction requests via the Agent Remarks in your listing, as well as directly with any agents or clients who request a showing appointment.
