As the situation surrounding COVID-19 is changing rapidly, we wanted to let you know about some things we’ve been working on over the weekend to help ensure that your ability to conduct business continues to be protected.
Second only to your health and safety and that of our community at large, our primary concern is protecting your ability to transact business and serve the needs of your clients.
Our government affairs team is having ongoing conversations with the staff at Virginia Realtors®.
The state association is working closely with the Governor’s office and the Department of Health, sharing information about the essential nature of real estate services to the citizens of Virginia and to the state’s economy.
We are fully prepared to assist VAR locally to reinforce their efforts at the state level, and have shared that with them.
There are also steps that each of you can take to help in this effort.
- Your safe practices can reinforce our efforts at the state level to ensure that real estate transactions are deemed essential and maintain your ability to continue to transact business.
- As this situation continues to evolve, please follow updated recommended practices by the CDC to prioritize public health and safety.
- Please take advantage of available technologies that minimize personal contact at every stage of the transaction process.
All of us working together, leveraging the excellent relationships that we have built through years of positive collaboration with our elected leaders, will provide the best opportunity to keep your business going.
