corona virus: Uncertain Times? Certainly Not! - 03/23/20 09:25 AM

corona virus: Are Real Estate Agent Activities Essential Services? - 03/23/20 06:39 AM
We are part of the big three immediate basic needs: Food, Shelter & Clothing. However, in California (and anywhere else in the USA a state's mandatory "shelter in place" order exists). it's important to know the California law does not, so likely your state doesn't either. Mitigate COVID-19 now for the 2.5 weeks we were ordered to and help us return to health and work sooner, otherwise we're looking at longer shelter in place downtimes.

corona virus: Keep Calm, Wash Your Hands: COVID-19 San Diego And California INFO - 03/15/20 11:44 AM
COVID-19 San Diego And California
 As a business owner #SmallBusinessStrong, husband, father and good neighbor I'm staying positive, calm and keeping informed.

It's business as usual for me so far, in fact our real estate market is busier than 2017 when we had seemed to peak. This too shall pass (as did the previous 6 pandemics in the last 17 years). This too shall pass and then how will we remember our actions, behavior, competence … (12 comments)
