COVID-19: How We Will Safely Serve You
A message to our clients and community,
This is a stressful time for all of us, as together we are facing an unprecedented global crisis. COVID-19 has forced us to adapt to an ever-changing reality as we fight to contain the virus.
First and foremost, we want you to know that we have and will continue to take action to protect you, our clients. The safety measures we are taking are being guided by public health authorities and the government, and often go well beyond.
The real estate industry has been declared an essential service in many provinces, but it is not business as usual. This was done primarily to ensure homeowners with pending closings, i.e. those who have already bought and need to sell, or those who have sold and have to buy, etc. are able to transact. Accordingly, we are doing business differently.
During the crisis, as much of the process as possible will be conducted virtually. Only in select cases, controlled access to properties to facilitate the sale or purchase of a property will be allowed, using best-practice disinfection, cleanliness and above all else, strictly limited person-to-person exposure using social distancing protocols.
How you will communicate and conduct business with us has changed. We have access to the industry’s leading operating platform, technology that allows us to keep in touch with you, share property details, complete real estate valuations and conduct transactions electronically.
We will continue to be here to discuss your situation and plan next steps, be it through phone, video, email, text or social media channels.
Canadians have placed their trust in Royal LePage for over 100 years. During this crisis, we are 100% committed to maintaining that trust.
As a final word, we can’t say enough about our front-line workers, the people who are risking their health to provide essential services. We owe you all our endless gratitude.
