Well this is certainly not the spring season we were expecting. As you all make changes in your daily lives to keep family and community safe and healthy, we wanted to assure you that our team is here to provide you with the full service beyond your expectations.
Last week, we began spearheading conference calls with agents across the country to see how they were adapting their practices and developing new tools in response to COVID 19. We have spent many hours researching technology-enhanced options for showing homes and developing best practices to keep sellers and buyers safe. The result is that we stand ready to work with you to offer the best combination of services that meet your needs and comfort level and are fully responsive to government and CDC recommendations and requirements.

Below we describe strategies we are developing for sellers and buyers. We want to know your thoughts on these ideas and encourage your creative input as well so please email us with your questions or comments.
Sellers: We are developing live interactive virtual open houses and virtual showings to get people through your home safely. Since a majority of people are working from home and may welcome a break, why not consider a noontime live virtual open house!
While standard virtual tours are nothing new and don’t seem to add much value to our buyer’s experience (buyers please weigh in), a personalized virtual tour allows people to ask questions in real time throughout the tour. This enhanced service is an efficient way to drive interest in the home. If the buyer is intrigued, we can discuss the options for doing an exclusive showing of the house.
Buyers: We can provide these same personalized virtual tours as mentioned above. If you’d like to see the house in person, we’ll work with the sellers to come up with a personalized plan.
Confused and want to talk or brainstorm? Click here and we can schedule a ZOOM meeting from the comfort of your own home. We don’t know how this will affect us day-to-day, however we can provide updates on our creative ideas and what we are seeing in the market. We have chosen to create ways to serve our clients better and keep everything in perspective. We are grateful to all of you for your support.
