I think about how I jumped into the real estate market when everyone was jumping out and not only did I survive, but I THRIVED! There are incredible opportunities that can come of this and most of all, incredible opportunities to see humanity at its best. I am seeing acts of love ๐Ÿ’“, kindness and a beautiful coming together of humans. ๐Ÿ‘ฅ

For those that thought the housing crisis and financial downturn in 2008 was the worst thing to ever happen, I watched cash flood the market and witnessed people who saw the good in the situation make millions and save others from financial ruin.

Hereโ€™s my CNN interview on the GOOD that came out of times like this: https://youtu.be/Vd80jmMYhuM

First, your property values did NOT decrease 10% overnight! I currently have 5 homes under contract and so far, all are sticking. I am meeting with clients still and taking on new clients at lightening speed. People still need a place to live, and they still have plans to move. Don’t let fear derail your plans.

To serve you even more during this time and keeping my clientโ€™s health and well-being as my #1 priority, I am offering support to see homes through a virtual home tour experience where I can tour the home for you and conference you in. I can also host livestream appointments to discuss selling your home, to be able to continue to provide you with the best white-glove service without a hitch. ๐Ÿฅ‡

For me, its BUSINESS AS USUAL, just with a little twist and possibly in my pjโ€™s. ๐Ÿ˜œ

This is an amazing time to plant some seeds that can forever change peopleโ€™s lives and grow into something stunning.

Mitch Grooms at my brokerage has co-created a support launch buddy system. Over 30 PalmerHouse agents, including myself, are now set up all over the city to help folks who cannot take the risk of infection during the social distancing time. If you know of someone who needs help, feel free to contact Winter Baserva at 678-463-3173 or Mitch Grooms at 404-386-1101. We will pick up medication, go to the store, help in anyway we can.
