Even during the pandemic, the real estate industry is continuing to operate, though in the effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19, I’ve been working from home, doing virtual tours of available homes for my buyers, and putting road maps together for buyers and sellers so that we are set to move forward with their real estate needs. While life has been crazy and sometimes chaotic, the silver linning during this time has been being able to continue working effectively and safely with my clients with the help of technology!
