Communication from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® is generated from a program called MailChimp. Our e-mails have the organization name, GBRAR, listed as sender. For those of you who use Gmail, you may have noticed that they now have category tabs (Social, Primary, & Promotions) in which your e-mail gets sorted into as it is delivered.
Your e-mail communications from the Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® are probably being delivered into your Promotions tab. If you would like our e-mail to be more visible by having them delivered directly into your Primary Tab all you need to do is drag and drop our e-mail into your Primary Tab and click "yes" when Gmail asks if you'd like future messages from this email address to go to your Primary tab.
