Precautions We Have Put In Place
When a team member or maintenance worker enters a home, they are equipped with gloves, a mask, and shoe coverings. We have closed our physical offices, we practice social distancing, and have eliminated any meeting that can be done over the phone or via a video call. We are taking this very seriously and are doing everything we can to keep our team safe.
How We Are Able To Serve You
While our physical offices are currently closed, we still offer a number of ways to help you! First, we are always available via a good old fashioned phone call! We’re happy to learn about your needs, buying or selling goals, and your situation! If you prefer, we are also available to video conference at any time. We can do home walkthroughs via Zoom, Google, or Facetime! Plus, many documents can be signed remotely via Docusign!
What You Can Do To Help
If you are buying or selling a house in Ottawa, there are coronavirus protections you should put in place for you and your family. We recommend holding off on seeing homes in person or having people in your house to come and see it. These things can be done online for the time being until the curve has been flattened and life begins to return to normal. Try to avoid having outsiders come in for repairs or maintenance. However, if there is an emergency and something needs to be repaired, make sure they have protective covering and that you keep your distance. Be sure to sterilize your house on a regular basis, especially if a repairman or other professional comes into your home to provide a service. Washing your hands, disinfecting your house, and practicing social distancing are the best ways to keep you and your family safe. If you feel any sign of illness, stay home and call your doctor immediately!
