A message to my valued clients re COVID-19 uncertainties.

Through the COVID-19 uncertain times in the residential real estate market, my clients need me more than ever to keep informed about the constantly changing national, regional and local rules and regulations, proclamations and advisories and how it affects them. They want to be reassured that I'm there to answer questions especially about how we proceed in the near term and down the road.

Marketing has changed, especially here on the Monterey Peninsula.  Where we had a high influx of visitors and "open houses", we now have to do an even better job of attracting buyers virtually.

Walking through Carmel-by-the-Sea's commercial district yesterday to my office -- and, yes, as an "essential" business I can now do that as long as I keep socially distant -- I saw some "for rent" signs in windows including real estate brokerage offices. The meaning is clear, they do not expect to attract walk-in traffic any time soon.

With even brokerages retracting or shuttering their brick-and-mortar offices, it is a sign of the times to come. 

But not Rothwell Realty:

Rothwell Realty is a boutique brokerage where we can "turn on a dime" to do what's best for our clients. We are ramping up our marketing!! Not retracting but looking forward to the next few months.

My real estate clients are like family to me and I will do everything I can to protect them from the outfall of COVID-19.

Stay safe,

Hella

Hella, it is definitely a strange time out there right now.   Before everything opened up, I took a video of the empty parking lots at the movie theater, schools, retail shops and restaurants.   I did not share it anywhere, but will be something to remember down the road.

More than four months have passed since you made this post, Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® and not much has changed. We are all working in a different world these days. Yet, by pivoting to the new reality of marketing we can still serve our clients well.

Hi John Juarez - our real estate market has exploded the past couple of months! Unbelievable. Who could have predicted that. Bay area buyers are coming to the Monterey Peninsula to get away from the crowded cities. In fact, I just put the 1038 Marcheta listing in Pebble Beach into escrow this week!!!

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® - I foresee big brick and mortar Office Buildings becoming rapidly obsolete. Recently two giant name brand Brokerage Companies in my area built mega buildings and expanded their parking lots. One established itself about 4 years ago. Because I pass it frequently at first I noticed the parking lot was relatively full but with time, cars dwindled. Now I may see one or two  cars - probably some Staff person holding down the fort waiting for someone, anyone to walk in the door.

The other Big Brokerage Company is new. It looked to be completed around late February or early March of this year. I haven't seen any cars in their mega parking lot or lights on at night either.  

I am so grateful I adjusted to working out of my home with a different Broker a few years ago. We really can still function and serve consumers despite the pandemic.

I wish you all the best.

My brick and mortar office is just that, an office not really meant for people to drop in.  It's pretty much by appointment especially right now. But it is right in the best part of the commercial district of Carmel-by-the-Sea. But consumers do ask "where is your office" and the Carmel Chamber and the powers that be in the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea  have me down as a serious "stakeholder" in town.  One of few brokerages.  All the others seem to have "retail" space at street level but their doors are mostly locked. Those with parking have no cars parked which means that several hundred agents who hang their licenses with them are working from home. I do not and my clients know where to find me.  I keep my business away from my home.
