In the state of Florida, real estate is considered an essential business so we are able to continue to help people with their housing needs. We practice social distancing and employ tools such as virtual tours, video conferencing, remote showings and digital signing whenever possible. Please know that we are still here to help you with your real estate needs!
As you are being safe, remember to be kind. Many people live alone and are lonely with the stay-at-home order in place. Many people are loosing loved ones, from both COVID-19 and NON-COVID-19 causes, at a time when mourning is difficult, large funerals impossible and even a comforting hug is forbidden. Many people are disconnected from their loved ones and can not get to them until this passes. Many people are working tirelessly to provide essential services. Please remember all of these people. A simple text, email or call can mean the world to some of them. And, kindness is always appreciated.
Please visit the CDC website for updates on what you can do to protect yourself and your family, as well as what you can do to help others.
