BACK TO WORK AND MANAGING EXPECTATIONS … PLUS A VERY SPECIAL FUND-RAISING INITIATIVE!
Our return to work and the re-opening of all Homes Estate Agents' offices, post-Covid 19 Lockdown, has thankfully gone very smoothly! We're also very pleased to report that there seems to be plenty of life in the market, We've already seen a marked pick-up in new instructions for Sales and Lettings, a very good level of interest from buyers, many viewings being arranged, plus a healthy number of Sales and Lets already agreed.
Not all our team members are back yet, but all our offices are fully open with a slightly reduced number of staff physically in the offices, whilst others are working from home, where it makes sense to. However, the full range of our services is available to all our customers, Monday through to Saturday, through all offices.
Cleary our main priority is the ongoing safety of our customers and our own teams. In this regard, we have taken all appropriate measures to ensure the offices are able to operate within the Government guidelines on social distancing and we have undertaken a risk assessment, as required. All our staff are fully briefed to comply to this, and we have published our policy and protocols on how valuations and viewings can be undertaken practically, together with the safety measures we are adopting to minimise any risks. This is available to customers upon request.
Whilst it's been a tough time for our sector and, of course, most other businesses, we're still in great shape and keen to pick up again as the region's No.1 Estate Agent. However, some of our local charity partners, whom we actively support in normal times, need our help more than ever - as most of their fund-raising activities are currently at a standstill. So, from now until the end of September, we're aiming to raise £25,000 from new sales arranged to distribute between –
- Treloars in Holybourne, who provide extraordinary schooling for the most seriously disabled young people
- Dreams Come True based in Liphook, who transform the dreams of young people with serious of life limiting conditions into reality
- The Petersfield & Liss branch of the NCT, who do so many great things to support early parenthood.
Full details of this initiative are available from all the offices. We also want to recognise the extraordinary contributions made by those key workers in the NHS, our care homes, the emergency services, food outlets and all the others who continue to keep us safe and supplied during this COVID 19 crisis. For these KEY workers, we're offering FREE CONVEYANCING (terms & conditions apply) when they instruct Homes to sell their home from now until the end of September.
So, welcome back to the 'new normal'!! It's in all our interests that we work together to make sure the property market is fully re-engaged as quickly as possible. Let's also help some truly amazing causes right on our doorstep at the same time!
PLEASE CONTACT US WHATEVER YOUR REQUIREMENTS ARE - WE'RE VERY PLEASED TO BE BACK AND FULLY GEARED UP TO HELP YOU!
