We are now four months into dealing with the unprecedented COVID circumstances and we would like you to know that we remain available to those who need us. We are here to help. We continue to be especially thankful to those working in the highest risk environments at the front lines of the outbreak.
The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve. In response, we have reassessed and updated our operational policies to ensure the best of everyone’s health. On April 3, 2020 Ontario released the revised list of essential workplaces; real estate and moving services are included in this list. It seems like the real estate market has resumed with more momentum than pre pandemic in many markets across Ontario. Buyer’s want to buy and sellers need to sell.
Many of our clients are more vulnerable than most, and we will continue to be robust and vigilant in serving them safely so they can move to the next chapter of their life with as little risk and stress as possible. We are here for them.
We will continue to fulfil our responsibilities to our clients as best we can, while following the Province's guidelines. Gordon’s has put in place several measures that reduce in-person contact where unnecessary and these include video or conference calls, digitally-signed agreements, the option of video property showings, social-distancing when packing/moving and supporting our staff to work with extra caution. Read Gordon’s policy for real estate showing and showing request form. By creating reduced and no contact processes, we are ensuring that everyone remains safe while helping vulnerable clients move forward.
This slowdown is an excellent time for some to plan an estate or explore safe downsize options virtually from your own home. We are here to answer all your questions; call us to set up a free consultation either through phone or a Zoom video call. If you are someone who's writing their will, ask us how you can alleviate your executor's future burden today.
As always, the health of our clients is of the highest importance to us. Gordon’s has evolved its processes over the years to create uniquely safe ways to support those we serve to achieve their critical goals. As we fight the pandemic, the stakes are higher and we consider it our duty to assist our clients who need us more than ever. Our pledge is to ensure that our clients, our staff and the public remain safe.
Stay safe and take care.
