You've already received a ton of e-mails from organizations talking about the precautions they're taking to keep you safe amid the COVID-19 outbreak. We can assure you that @properties' agents and staff are following the same precautions. So we wanted to instead take this opportunity to let you know a few things about @properties and about our current real estate market. Thank you so much for taking a minute to read this.

  1. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE PREPARED TO DO BUSINESS SAFELY - Over the past 10 years, @properties has developed proprietary technology, which gives our agents everything they need to do business without being physically present in an office or even a home. All files, marketing tools and transaction management tools are available on pl@tform™, which means that the resources and services you need from your real estate agent will not be interrupted due to coronavirus.  

  2. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE LOCAL - @properties is a local company, and we will draw upon the local resources and expertise of our nearly 3,000 agents, representing virtually every neighborhood and town in the region, to deliver the local information, services, advice and expertise you need now more than ever. Critically, we will also continue to support the ecosystem of locally owned and operated businesses that drive our local economy and employ local workers. Likewise, we thank you for your support.

  3. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE FLEXIBLE - Long before coronavirus, @properties had the ability to market, show and sell homes in a variety of ways. Now that flexibility is coming to the fore. Want buyers to view your home without being physically present? We have many video and virtual tools to make that happen. Want exposure prior to listing your home in the MLS? We can deliver thousands of eyeballs via @properties' exclusive pre-market apps. Want to enhance online marketing while more buyers are relying on digital? We can do that too. Note that the lone physical component to any quality marketing program is photography and video. And we want you to know that the strictest precautions will be taken in the capture of any new footage. Talk to your agent for details.

  4. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE AVAILABLE - The greatest ability is avail-ability, and @properties is here for you. We are working, we are advising, we are helping. So reach out an elbow and tell us what you need.

  5. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE GRATEFUL - We know this disruption is temporary, and that the world will rebound soon. But the events of the past couple of weeks also reinforce the appreciation we have for our clients and communities. So we approach the days ahead with a deep sense of gratitude for the problems we get to solve and the work we love to do.

Please stay safe, and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or needs.
