Working to Create a Safe Community for All
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, there are many changes to our daily lives to decrease our in-person contact with each other, both personally and with how we do business. In uncertain times it can be difficult to confront obstacles head on, but in order to overcome any challenges we face we must approach them directly and honestly together. To that end, we are going to publish a series of articles about the impact this pandemic has on many facets of our industry and the general public with the hope that together we can stay educated and informed on best practices during these unfortunate and unusual circumstances.
Bennion Deville Homes continues to stay on top of the changing situation both locally and abroad to gauge the effect this pandemic will have on our real estate market and the economy. Our goal is to offer useful and meaningful insight into how the real estate industry can and will adapt to the oncoming shift in the market while also implementing measures to protect the health and safety of everyone involved. As the local real estate leader, we want to set the bar in all aspects of that role, including being a conscientious community partner and looking out for the well-being of all.
First and foremost, to mitigate exposure and provide the safest environment possible for everyone, including our clients, agents, and staff, Bennion Deville Homes has implemented several measures across all of our offices:
· We are strongly incorporating social distancing, including suspending weekly office meetings in favor of digitally disseminated meeting minutes and cancelling any and all office gatherings and events.
· Our weekly caravans around the Coachella Valley are on hold indefinitely.
· All offices are well-stocked with essential sanitation supplies as well as a regimen in place that calls for enhanced frequency of cleaning high-touch items, including door handles/knobs, phones, and highly trafficked surfaces.
· We are calling on our agents to mitigate in-person contact as much as possible and to take precautions before, during, and after personal contact with others, such as frequent handwashing and not shaking hands.
Additionally, the majority of our agents are able to work from home thanks to the technology that makes this possible. Many of the resources we offer may be accessed remotely, allowing business to continue from any location at any time. For those who need to access offices to complete some work or schedule a meeting, our offices will remain open, including conference and resource rooms, for as long as it is safe to do so. We are also offering internal advice to agents and adapting our procedures as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Riverside County Public Health, and local authorities are released and implemented across the county and within each city.
In closing, we will rise and overcome this crisis by working together and doing what is in the best interest of everyone across Southern California and the communities we serve. No one knows the true long-term impact this will have, but we are going to take it day-by-day and ensure that each measure we take is done with the health and safety of everyone involved first.
