Don't know if it's 'normal' but, it certainly has gotten insanely busy this past week.

I went from 0 - 60 in a nanosecond!

Ha! Working on my business everything is business as usual.
In the field, the New Normal yes.

Been so busy the last 4 weeks in the market and on the business.

But, nothing is “old normal” in the market.

How are you?

We are rolling out in stages as well but our proximity to NJ/NY could be a factor.

RE is shut down to date as non-essential in PA, Gov. has been sued on this.

Back to business yes but slower than a spring market should be. Many sellers all wanting to wait until summer. Those that do list now i can sell in days, but need more to sell

I'm busy considering what's happening in our world.  We're still "on Pause" with Phase 1 to start in regions that hit the right metric marks.  Real Estate is in Phase 2.  One step at a time...

If I had a normal business here in NY, the answer would be no.  But thankfully, I have an onlne business, so things are more normal. Yes, it has had its challenges due to the economy, but doing well/well enough.  And, one of my affiliate partners just came back online last night, so that is good news.

We had to threaten the Governor to get him real . . . but we enjoy that sort of thing.

This re-opening reminds me of recovery therapy where you get back to whole-some-ness where what functions continues. The quicker the better for this reason: There is much to explore beyond the norm but not until norm is reached. Essentially "growth" is on hold as well as the norm is

It is back to normal, if normal includes staring at each other wondering if it is going to be the elbow, toe-tap, bow, handshake or hug.

I've always preferred having buyers travel with me so I could receive and deliver crucial information.  Today, that is not even a consideration.

And grabbing lunch the past weeks, during the buying tour.....well, that has not been enjoyable at all.

The problem I see ahead is the momentum of alteratives created during this downtime will intersect the increasing real estate activity and I'll need to create the 36 hour day.
