REALTOR® Resources regarding Coronavirus and the GPBR Office

GPBR Office Update:

While our office does remain closed at this time, and the staff is working remotely to continue to serve our members, we have opened the Board Store up for e-mail and phone orders for outside pickup. Since we are working remotely, we do need advance notice for store purchases. If you would like same-day pick up, please call or email to place your order and schedule your pickup before 12:30 PM. Same day orders must be picked up no later than 1 PM. Any orders placed after 12:30 PM will have to be picked up the next day, or at another scheduled time. 

Orders can be placed via e-mail to, using this order form, or you may call 775-1097 and leave a message to order over the phone. All orders must be paid for at the time of ordering. Please see the attached form to order through e-mail.

No customers will be allowed in the store at this time, but a list of signs and their prices can be found here, and a list of our accessories and lock boxes can be found here. We are also attaching photos of most of our signs below.

Please indicate when you will be arriving to pick up your items when you order, and we will have everything ready to be picked up outside our front door at that time.


Please note that while customers are not allowed into the building and store at this time, our staff will be following the recommended safety protocols and guidance issued by the state and CDC, which includes wearing face coverings, and we expect our customers to do the same. Please be respectful of our staff during this time – their safety, and that of our members, is of the utmost importance to us!

Should you need to reach us, please email Heather HorlorKatrina Tokay or Nora Kreisler. We will also be monitoring our phone messages and responding promptly.

We appreciate your understanding and support, and we will continue to provide updates as things evolve.

Local Updates:

As of May 4, 2020, the City’s emergency order references and fully incorporates the Governor’s orders and guidance, and no longer contains more strict provisions. This means that the Governor’s orders and the City’s are the same, and the state guidance must be followed in Portland. The City does continue to have a few additional provisions in its order that the public should be aware of, including additional restrictions on off-leash dogs and the continuation of the Affordable Rental Housing Incentive Program.
