2021 Welcome to Greenwich Magazines have arrived!
The GAR and GMLS Board of Directors is delighted to share with you the 2021 Welcome to Greenwich Magazine
produced by Greenwich Magazine/Moffly Media. At this point, hard copies have been delivered to most local brokerages, and additional inventory is available at the GAR/GMLS Office for pickup during business hours. The 2021 issue includes information and resources for those new to Greenwich, and perhaps those simply re-discovering the area. We also welcome you to share the digital version
online and with your social media networks.

Update on Teams
CTR continues to work to ensure that teams may be permitted to advertise in Connecticut. CTR has worked with DCP and legislative committee leaders/members to craft what would be necessary to provide the transparency necessary to permit the future legal existence of teams in CT. As reported earlier, there is presently not a statute, rule or advisory that permits a group of real estate licensees to advertise as a team. The transparency features would include a registration (that is not a license) with DCP including annual/change fees, defining a team as having at least two licensees, and not permitting words in the name of a team (other than the word team) that are the same or similar as those used by real estate brokerage agencies. Should CTR be unsuccessful in our efforts, then the outcome would be that teams cannot advertise publicly. As cautioned earlier, you may wish to not spend funds to further a name that may not be permitted in the future. CTR will advise when a determination is made.
