Danbury Seller closes 2 homes amid COVID-19

How they dealt with the move, closing and their safety.


 

On Good Friday, our trusting client's Jason & Jimena prepared to close on 2 homes in Danbury CT with the help of The Brokerage of New EnglandFairfield County Bank and the Law Offices of Lawrence Riefberg. It was a team effort and everyone took necessary safety precautions including our sellers, making sure all keys, garage door openers, manuals and etc where left at the property to eliminate additional handling. Removed all personal items from the home, cleaned and sanitized door knobs prior to the new homeowner taking possession.

"Our move wasn’t exactly timed right with everything going on in the world but they were there every step of the way to guide us in the right direction. For a while we were not sure that everything would get finalized with the banks due to the shutdowns and then we were not sure if we would be able to actually move because of the possible “stay at home” order that was looming. Luckily, everything went smoothly in the end. We signed our documents “curbside” to keep our social distance and closed on our new home the same day! Lisa and Brian were amazing to work with and we would recommend them to all of our family and friends for any of their future real estate needs." Jason & Jimena

The Brokerage Group - CT Real Estate closings are becoming more and more creative, and after this is over some of that creativity will probably remain in place.  Sometimes if takes something like this virus to get everyone to re-think how things are done, and finding better, safer ways.

Congratulations on the closings, and the happy clients.

We too are continuing using the CDC guidelines, plus we added shoe covers for showings and closings to protect those around us from the germs on our shoes.

Thank you Tammy Lankford, that's a great idea. I've used them in the past and seeing them available in the newer listings. Hopefully our stores have them in stock. Be safe and thanks again.

Internally we are running as normal, except everyone is working from home.  We were prepared for the stay at home orders, so our people were already to work from home.  Howver, we have had to make provisions for e-closings, and bring on an online notary.  Selling loans is a challenge, but we are very well funded so we will just keep the loans in our portfolio and then sell them when the market returns to normal.

These are interesting times, and we need to be prepared to accommodate the changes which might still be coming down the road.
