GNAR members are invited to listen and learn from the Local Historic District Study Commission on the proposed historical district overlay plan. Representing the LHD will be Doug Locy, Doug Bolick, Ed Ramsdell and Sara White.  They will present at 9am.

This is a great opportunity to learn first hand what recommendations the commission has made, and what the State countered with. It is also a forum from which you can share your thoughts and those of your clients.  The presentation and Q&A should run approximately 45 minutes.

Thank you to Mark Panall of the Institution for Savings who will be providing refreshments for the GNAR meeting tomorrow morning.

The following are scheduled for February 13 at GNAR:



Chapter 93A – Consumer Protection and Business Regulation

This class addresses placing the consumer on a level playing field with the business of real estate, and prioritizing proper disclosure and behavior in the business of real estate” also licensees’ obligations.  Designed for real estate brokers and salespersons and provides a comprehensive overview of the application, procedures and potential liability under the Consumer Protection Statute. While this law has far reaching impact on business activities, this course merely puts focus on those elements relevant to real estate practice. While a thorough knowledge of this important law is critical for licensees, it is not a substitution for legal counsel. The actual law is M.G.L. c. 93A, but it is widely referenced as “93A”.


 Understanding Title/Title Concerns
This class places discussion on what issues we face today on making sure that certain title issues are addressed; third party approval, short sales, liens, escrow, clouds on the title, Homestead concerns and more. 

1p—3 p



Are we, as licensees, presenting ALL offers and giving the parties to the offer appropriate treatment in accordance with the laws that govern us?  Discussion of multiple offers, verbal offers, low offers, and all types of offers.
