The handshake is on hold, but the integrity it represents is alive and well.
We’ve only begun to grasp the breadth of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ways the coronavirus outbreak will require us to reconsider our social behavior. The business of real estate is built on trust and personal relationships, and for buyers and sellers approaching the biggest transaction of their lives, curbing face time with an agent is a lot to ask. Amid disruption and uncertainty, however, we want you to know that your Corcoran agent is a constant. The handshake is on hold, but the integrity it represents is alive and well.
Corcoran is committed to doing our part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 across our core markets. We are working to safeguard the health of our agents — and in turn, to protect the wellbeing of our clients and members of the communities we serve. Like other real estate firms, Corcoran is following directives from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Association of Realtors — particularly guidance related to hygiene and social distancing.
Amid disruption and uncertainty, we want you to know that your Corcoran agent is a constant.
While staffing has been suspended or pared back at some Corcoran retail offices, Corcoran agents — and the teams that support them — remain ready to serve our clients. We have implemented stringent protocols for disinfecting and managing access to our places of business, and we’re working closely with sellers to maintain these deep-clean standards in the homes we represent. Moreover, our agents are successfully leveraging an array of proven tools to remotely engage with buyers and sellers, to conduct virtual showings and open houses, and even to manage and complete transactions online.
We stand with our agents and our clients during this unprecedented time. We are well beyond business as usual, but the commitment to service that has defined this company for close to five decades is unchanged. Now, as ever, the lights are on at Corcoran.
