The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown all of us into new and novel situations. For us, we pride ourselves on our ability to build trust with our customers and contribute to our communities.
Our ability to achieve customer excellence and community involvement has been tested by the pandemic. But some of our other strengths, which have been invaluable over the past weeks, are adaptability and forward-thinking. And those have really shone through.
Here’s what we’re doing to stay connected with our community during the COVID crisis:
We’ve always worked hard to be at the forefront of technological innovation within the real estate industry. The wheels were put in motion for our NOW/WOW Virtual Renovation Tours some time ago, allowing our clients to benefit from showing their homes virtually while also showing potential buyers what the home could look like following an update.
We’re also meeting with our clients and potential buyers online and offering these essential services:
- Virtual live stream open houses;
- Virtual consultations and evaluations;
- 3D digital tours;
- Efficient deposit delivery protocols; and
- Providing ongoing virtual support and guidance from mortgage companies, financial institutions, and legal resources.
All the while, we’re implementing stringent safety standards and promoting physical distancing with our essential staff working from home where possible.
Giving back to our community
Giving back has always been important to us, but we felt the need to help now more than ever.
Our Food Drive earlier this month raised $4,580 and 246 bags of groceries, totalling 1800 pounds of food at a value of over $9,000. We were blown away by the generosity of the amazing community members whose donations and support made this event possible.
You can see the full list of donors on the page we’ve devoted to thanking them.
Being Present – Online
You rely on us for information and we’re working hard (from home) to make sure you’re getting it.
It’s an uncertain time for all of us. We feel responsible for ensuring that you’re empowered by facts and figures, so you can make the best decisions for yourself during this time.
Fortunately, we’ve been able to report some positive news. For instance, the average sale price increased this year when compared to last. And while the number of homes sold did decrease, as we expected, the decrease was nominal – only five fewer homes sold in March this year compared to last.
Keep an eye on our social channels for updates, tips, and information.
To share a smile and maybe even provide some inspiration while we all spend more time at home, we’ve launched ‘Cooking with Team Logue’.
Our team will each prepare one of their favourite dishes for your viewing pleasure.
The first masterclass, by Chris Logue, will teach you to make Drop Dead Meatballs. For something sweeter, check out Joannie’s Lemon Whip Dessert.
