At The Woolcott Team, our number one priority has always been putting clients and the community first. In these uncertain times, this is a core belief we will continue to stick to unwaveringly.
Premier Ford announced the list of essential services that will be allowed to remain open during this shut down. This list includes: “Land registration services, and real estate agent services and moving services.”
For many in our community, real estate is an essential service, as they may need to buy or sell due to death, financial difficulties, divorce, etc. Though we commend the decision to keep real estate open as an essential service, please know this is not one we take lightly and we take our responsibility to help flatten the curve extremely seriously.
Business is not as usual. We have taken a number of steps to reduce contact and spread of COVID-19 in our community and are continually assessing the situation on an hourly basis. Below is what we currently have in place:
Our office is completely closed, and all sales representatives, administrators and management are working full-time remotely.
Any team member that is exhibiting any signs of illness such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, have been outside of the country within the last 14 days or have been around someone showing symptoms is not allowed to show homes or meet with clients in any capacity.
If an agent is in isolation, another member of The Woolcott Team will step in for any necessary in-person meetings or showings. We have put backups and virtual resources in place to ensure your experience with The Woolcott Team is never compromised.
As always, for those in our community who are experiencing flu or cold symptoms, we encourage you to stay home. If you are in need of supplies (groceries, prescriptions, etc), and need support to pick these up, we would be more than happy to help you out in this time of need. Simply call us at 905 332 9223 and we’ll arrange. We want to be as proactive as possible in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Moving forward, we’ve developed a number of virtual means to practice safe social distancing in real estate. We are fully capable of managing transactions virtually from end-to-end. Have a look below at just a few of the measures we’ve put in place!
