The provincial government announced on March 26 that real estate agents are considered an essential service in BC. Being an essential service doesn’t mean business as usual.
The recognition grants REALTORS® the privilege to continue to practice real estate in a socially responsible manner in strict adherence to the provincial health office’s orders.
These are uncertain times. Should you need to, contact me to discuss how to responsibly achieve your real estate needs amid today’s public health emergency. There are technology-based solutions that I can discuss as alternatives to in-person interactions, such as virtual showings and completing offers to purchase and service agreements electronically using digital signatures.
I encourage we have open and transparent communications to resolve any issues that may arise related to COVID-19 in the course of your real estate needs. The health and safety of all concerned – you and your family, members of the public, and real estate professionals – is my highest priority.
My duty is to help you make informed decisions and I promise not to provide advice that is outside of my area of expertise (such as public health.)
Key information sources for up-to-date public health information about COVID-19 in BC include:
- Health Link BC
- BC Centre for Disease Control: Information on novel coronavirus
- Government of Canada update on Novel Coronavirus
- Public Health Agency of Canada
- World Health Organization (WHO) information about Novel Coronavirus
While our country, and the entire world faces this challenging situation, I am prepared and ready to continue to help you reach your real estate goals.
Please contact me today if you have any questions or would like to discuss selling or purchasing a property.
