Our Response to COVID-19 – safety and real estate

To Our Friends, Clients, and Colleagues,
It has been an unprecedented past few weeks as our world faces historic challenges with the growing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. First and foremost, we wish to send our love and support.

To our clients, please know that we will continue to serve your every real estate need, according to all social distancing best practices laid out by the CDC, and will do everything we can to offer our knowledge and support.

With that in mind, on March 28, 2020 the US DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY issued a memorandum instating real estate professionals (e.g. agents, mortgage officers, et al.) as essential services during this current hardship. Governor Cooper of the State of North Carolina also deemed real estate professionals as essential services now.

Mecklenburg County, however, issued stricter guidelines which we interpret to mean that real estate agents are deemed essential when they are involved in a property that is Under Contract.
The rules keep changing and we are working hard to keep up with the latest while maintaining safety. We at Goff Choice Properties – (Clark Goff and team at Allen Tate) recognize the seriousness of this announcement and will conduct ourselves accordingly.

Over the past week, we’ve received a number of calls and emails inquiring how we are conducting business during this time.
For buyers:

  • Virtual buyer consultations through the Zoom platform
  • FaceTime showings by Sellers
  • Shop for a home from home with new search platforms
  • Strategies to get a home purchase completed safely while adhering to guidelines

For sellers:

  • Virtual listing consultations through the Zoom platform
  • FaceTime consultations to review how to prepare the home
  • No Open Houses
  • FaceTime showings to qualified buyers
  • Where we can conduct showings adhere to all social distancing and CDC guidelines

If you have questions about buying or selling real estate, we would be delighted to schedule a virtual consultation to discuss the options. Please email Clark.Goff@allentate.com to coordinate.

We will continue to monitor and adhere to guidelines set forth by our local, state and national governments, as well as leading real estate industry authorities.

We are here to assist you in every way possible and are committed to providing you with the utmost service and guidance moving forward.
On behalf of Goff Choice Properties we send our love, prayers and best wishes for the health of you and your loved ones. We will get through this together.
