CCAR's COVID-19 Plan of Action

CCAR believes that all real estate services and related activities are essential to the life, health, and safety of communities and residents. Further, these services provide shelter, an essential need to ensure that government orders can be followed accordingly. CCAR proactively advocated on behalf of our membership to our elected officials and will continue to do so to ensure that your operations are affected to the least extent possible during these times. Due to CCAR, Texas REALTORS®, and and NAR’s proactive efforts in contacting and communicating closely with our local, state, and federal elected officials and regulatory bodies, we have been able to ensure that you are open for business and are essential to our communities. We are proud that your REALTOR® Associations were able to help ensure your essential service in these times. Our city councils, mayors, commissioners, judges, and state and federal elected officials truly understand the importance of providing real estate services as a helpful resource to remedy the spread of COVID-19. If we receive notice that the orders are amended and real estate services are affected, we will notify you.
