Governor Jay Inslee has ordered residents of Washington State to stay home, and all non-essential businesses to close their offices to limit the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Unlike in Denver, the Washington State order currently does not include real estate on the list of essential businesses. The team at Trelora’s Seattle office is fully prepared to continue serving clients as they buy and sell homes while doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Our Seattle office has been preparing for this possibility for the past several weeks by working from home and replacing in-person customer communication with video chat, phone, email, and text.
Here’s what this latest order means for you as a Seattle-area Trelora client (for the latest from Colorado, click here):
- You can still reach your agent any time. Your agent is working from home, and focused on delivering the exceptional customer service experience you’ve come to expect from them.
- Closings will still occur as scheduled. Title and escrow services qualify as essential business, so closings are still able to proceed as scheduled, with appropriate safety precautions.
- Showings and listing consultations will only be conducted remotely. For Trelora sellers, we are preparing resources to support self-guided showings over video conference. For our buyer clients, we will coordinate with the listing agent of any home to enable the best possible showing experience for you while maintaining distancing.
This is a quickly-evolving situation, and we will continue to monitor changes in all of the communities we serve. If you have any questions, please contact your agent. We’re glad to be here for you whether you have questions about your real estate transaction or are just looking for a friendly voice during this challenging time.
Thank you for understanding, and thank you for choosing Trelora.
