The Georgia Association of REALTORS (GAR) will move to their new offices beginning Thursday, January 21, 2016. The new office address for GAR will be 6065 Barfield Road, Atlanta, GA 30328.

All access to the GAR servers will be curtailed from Thursday January 21, 2016 through Saturday January 23, 2016. Any attempt to access the servers during that time period will be greeted as an "outage" - there will be no possibility of a connection.


List of the affected services (copied from the GAR announcement) :

  • ​All GAR websites (, ​
  • Video Conferencing
  • GAR phone system
  • Online registrations
  • ​Online Scholarship applications
  • Online Forms access (GAR Direct only - vendors supplying GAR Forms will not be impacted)
  • Online e-commerce system​
  • Partners in Education - Course Request Form
  • PIE - Sponsor Resource Page

Despite the move and the shut-down of the servers, GAR states that the following functions will still be available(copied from the GAR announcement) :

  • All GAR staff email will be operational
  • GAR Facebook and Twitter
  • GAR Senior Staff will be available via email and cell phone

The Servers will be up and running by Monday, January 25, 2016 when the Staff begins at the new location.

The GAR announcement explains that "Due to unpacking and setting up of the staff offices - the first meetings in the new location will be held on Wednesday, January 27.​"
