Following an appeal by NHAR, "Real Estate Transactions" has been added to the list of essential services in the Governor's stay-at-home order. As part of Exhibit A to Emergency Order 17, the real estate provision reads as follows:
Real Estate Transactions/Agents/Brokers
Amidst the sea of change to which the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS has played witness in its 85 years, one thing that has remained constant is the Realtor 'R' and the value we bring to every real estate transaction in which we take part. We are part of a unique community where our familial cooperation transcends our business competition. These are not mere platitudes, but our living ideals, and they are, in fact, the foundation on which we conduct ourselves in our day-to-day affairs.
Marc Drapeau, 2020 President, New Hampshire REALTORS
