The Plan for the Return to a New Normal
Hopefully, all of your Zoom meetings, virtual showings, and other creative real estate strategies are going well.  Now that many states are implementing the roll-out for re-opening, the question is, what is your plan for the return to the new normal.
The real question is to define what a new normal looks like. First, I believe this pandemic has changed our world in many ways. Attention to sanitizing protocols, how we greet one another, and methods we use to communicate most likely will continue for quite some time. 
For some of us, we have recognized … (7 comments)

The Cowtown theme was prevalent throughout the state conference … (4 comments)

South Texas REALTORS Facing EPIC Challenges
As a REALTOR who went through the ravages of Hurricane Ike many years ago, these types of disasters affect the real estate industry in a unique way. Obviously, the loss of life along with the loss of hundreds of thousands of homes is devastating. What happens however, after the flood waters recede and the clean up begins?
