Happy Old Year, Happy New Year!
It’s been another great year for us at GSL, and we thank all our valued clients and colleagues for working with us!
As in the past, we were proud this year to take a leadership role in our industry by sponsoring CAI-NE and NE Condominium Expos, hosting seminars, serving on legislative committees in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, tracking new regulations, writing topical blogs and articles, and being expert contributors on prominent radio stations.
Looking back, we thought it would be helpful to review some of last year’s highlights with links to representative blog posts and related articles. What follows are seasonal spotlights, starting with a piece about the move of our Rhode Island office and ending with a piece on unit owner sales. In between, we cover everything from collecting unpaid fees…to flying the flag…to dealing with the government shutdown…to assessing your insurance…to legalizing medical marijuana.

In addition, Ellen and Henry will continue to be featured periodically as guests on WBZ Real Estate Radio airing on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. on 1030 A.M.
Looking ahead, we at GSL anticipate another busy and rewarding year marked by breaking news as well as ongoing concerns that associations face every day. Throughout the year, we will continue expanding our role as industry educators, and we look forward to being of service.
To all of our valued clients and friends, Happy New Year!
