A message to my NON REALTOR friends

Based on what you see on TV, you may believe Realtors are concerned because they can’t sell homes or hold open houses.The Federal Government labeled residential real estate “essential” last week, & let me explain why.... it’s not about “sales”. In reality, our government & the real estate industry are much more concerned about people with these sorts of challenges:

👉🏼 A mother of two boys who just lost her husband in a horrible car accident last night. They didn’t have life insurance. She realizes she can no longer afford the home they live in. That mom desperately needs to sell the house and get a smaller one in the same school district because she doesn’t want the kids to be further tramatized by losing their friends right after just losing their dad.

👉🏼The 80-year-old couple who just moved into a small condo to cut expenses and put their 4-bedroom colonial up for sale. They lost most of their life savings this month in the stock market crash. They must now sell their previous house immediately because they need the proceeds of that sale to sustain them financially.

👉🏼A couple with an infant daughter who has special long-term medical needs. They must move closer to the hospital that specializes in the type of procedure required to heal their little one. They need to move now.

👉🏼A woman and her two small kids who has been in an abusive relationship and finally had the courage to say enough is enough! Her priority is to get her kids to a safe home, she needs to move now.

👉🏼A family's house burned down - they lost everything they own .. including their dear family pets .. and they've just received their insurance payout & need to find a home to buy ASAP.

👉🏼 a mom quarantined with her kids in NY while their dad is here stuck house hunting with the goal of reuniting his family ASAP!

👉🏼 The couple that listed their home before the COVID-19 scare due to a job relocating them and now have double mortgages to pay and lost wages. They begged us not to wait and we sold their home today 🙏🏻

TV concentrates on the glitz & glamour of our profession. In reality, Realtors serve many people through some extraordinarily difficult times. Death, divorce, sickness, job loss-an endless list.

Situations like those mentioned above & others are taking place right now all over the country. I promise you this is about serving our client's, not sales.❤️
