Dear Valued Engel & Völkers Clients and Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity in our current environment to provide an update on the steps we are taking as a corporate community to be proactive. In this challenging time as we battle Covid-19 it is important for us not to panic or overreact, but instead be smart thinking and aware of our environment. We are implementing and following the guidelines we have been provided by the CDC and other reputable health organizations, which include frequently washing our hands, avoiding crowded areas and events, and staying at home if we do not feel well. Should we have any of the symptoms to immediately call our health care providers for advice.

We would like you to know that we are taking steps at Engel & Völkers to continue forward with our business by implementing some adjustments to how we conduct business.

We regularly provide virtual home tours. We have the capability to show homes virtually by video and virtual walk through tools such as Immoviewer. This will allow potential buyers to view a property for sale from the comfort of their own office or home. This includes creatively using this technology to market your home for a virtual open house so that we may still market a home properly even if not a traditional in-person open house.

We are also very comfortable doing business completely paperless, so we do not need our clients to leave the comfort of their home to conduct business.

Additionally, we are training our teams properly in these areas as well as screening prospective clients for any health concerns, as well as recent travel locations so that we may better determine the safety of all involved prior to any in-person appointments.

We are committed to ensuring a clean and safe environment for both our clients and agents. In our own offices we are taking all advised precautions including cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting all public areas and workspaces multiple times a day. We have been training our agents on the above guidelines, the importance of disclosure and adherence to precautions. We have also taken our sales and training meetings online rather than in group settings and many of our employees are now working from home.

We would like you to know that we are still doing substantial business for both buyers and sellers, and will keep doing so by implementing the proper systems for all. We understand the world will be doing business with different rules and multiple challenges going forward, and we will continue to adapt and focus on how we can deliver the most professional experience possible to our valued clients. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact me personally anytime to discuss. Thank you for your continued support.
