Rhode Island Green Awareness Program (GAP)

The Rhode Island Association of REALTORS® is pleased to announce a new Rhode Island ONLY Designation designed to more intensely prepare our members to assist their clients/customers in the pursuit of obtaining and/or updating to the “Green” standards now desired in our marketplace.
