Caroline Gerardo - you are the best! You are the first and only person that has asked if we need help - what can you do to help!  So many are just selling and cramming their goods at people because they have a 'what's in it for them mentality' versus your mindset ... 'how may I help'.  

Way to lead the Camp Woman!  

Thank you. 💛💙I am all set here ... waiting for my world to open.

Caroline, good question.  Some local lenders have been doing both.

Free credit repair became important in 2008 market confusion. Buyers needed clarification on options.  In some cases to get off credit repair programs that took their money but provided little guidance on qualifying.  

The smart lenders achieved a win-win by advising buyers what specifically to do.  Buyer saved monthly fee to credit company, got approved, lender got great reference.

So what I think I can offer is detailed plan of a. safe listing appointment b. showing a house safely or c. car kit to keep your hands virus free and face covered.

We have to block the particles and clean and destroy any molecules

 We all know the masks are uncomfortable and seem to make us as sales persons feel like we can't smile or connect. What about one of those wonky clear visors? Or have a smiley on your mask or logo?

Sellers are going to worry that they can't see all the places in their home where a visitor might have left tiny blobs of virus. How to monitor this? Cameras? Loan a camera to your listing ? Costco and Home depot have some plug and go ones that cost $200 I loan scanners to borrowers and this seems like a way the Seller could feel in control. Then there is the blocking and cleaning. Having face masks with your logo to hand to clients seems like it blocks but humorous marketing. Keep sanitizer and rubbing alcohol in car, and a box of disposable gloves. What if you wore all white medical scrubs to give the confidence to your listing appointment and meet with them outside? What ideas do you have?

Those who have actually been thinking about the challenges of forging ahead will read your offer and see it resonates with their need to graciously re-enter.

Too often, the person know not what they need. I've been present when a broker stated, "I have $15,000 to invest in office and agent needs. Where would you like this money spent?"  No on suggested anything about creating more new business.  Folks just don't know what they need.

My suggestion is, and I know this is in your wheel-house, is actually tapping into the anxiety most citizens are felling even though they will deny and keep saying 'Fight the good fight."

Anxiety roots are the feeling ones basic needs will not be met. 

Whether it is FAKE NEWS or the reality their brothers company just went under, the uncertainty exists.

A series of messages regarding the 'Umbrella of Protection" that surrounds those of disciplined and virtuous living, I believe, is the balm to assuage the troubled spirit.

Everyone considers themselves disciplines and virtuous regardless of how they live.

I believe this places the agent in the proper position to communicate 'I'm ready when you are ready."   

Given a moments thought, one can see this will have legs into 2021.
