Atlanta Buckhead Midtown -
Realty Professionals Helping Each Other 

 

 

In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and Westside, Atlantans are surrounded with opportunities to give service at this time of physical distancing.


Our company, Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty, participates in a Food Drive for residents of Elderly High Rise buildings. Residents of these communities benefit from the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Residents were entitled to ride building transport - a small bus or van to go to the grocery or medical appointments. 

No group transportation in service now so that many of the Residents cannot get out to get groceries. 


One of the Staff at each Residence organizes the food items that are donated each Friday. First, the food packages are sprayed with disinfectant. Then left until Monday when the items are arranged for community members to come "shopping".

Items suggested to bring include but are not limited to canned soup,
tuna, peanut butter,
canned vegetables, pasta, pasta sauce, crackers,
toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer
and disinfectant wipes. 


The illustration above was done by an eight-year-old who wanted to offer help to others. She went around her small subdivision leaving the notes in mailboxes for her neighbors. Even if no one did request help, everyone enjoyed receiving the kind notes - each one with a different inspirational quotation.


Personally, as a Buyer's Broker, I have been able to assist other professionals by freeing the Listing Agents from opening the houses I am showing to my Clients. When we get to the homes, we carefully wipe down our shoes before we enter. Once inside, we wear masks and gloves. As we look around the rooms, we use disinfectant wipes to open closets or cabinets. 


Oddly enough, when we are going to see vacant homes, we take the same precautions! One doesn't know who was there before we got there nor if the people there before us were taking the extensive precautions as we do. Being certain that all possible steps have been followed is very important for us at Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty. We believe in doing what needs to be done for everyone's safety.

PS -- 


Want to share a glimpse of Spring

with my AR friends who may be
in the throes of late Winter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Margaret Rome's April 2020 Challenge - Professionals Helping Others 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are still working at Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty.
Call us at 404-939-2727 for a LIVE video tour of any home.
 

We always offered private live video tours so our experience makes it easier for us to show homes now. We want to protect our Buyer Clients during the Search process as we all try to reduce contacts to confront the spread of COVID-19. 

How does it work? You stay at home, direct the tour room to room as one of us walks around. After the virtual tour, when you are ready, give me a call to visit the home. We maintain strict social distancing. We supply gloves for you when you walk around by yourself.   All the best, Lynn - 404-939-2727

PS  If we ever get to travel again, maybe we can meet each other when I visit my grandchildren in Center City. About -oh - 5 or so years ago, I organized an AR Meet-up when I was there -- we had a small but fun group together! L.

That would be fun, I tried to organize one last year but no one even replied, other than to say they couldn't come, it was a shame.

Yes, over the years, I have tried to organize Meet-Ups each time I went to another city or when finding out someone is coming to Atlanta and organizing interactions here. My Post about it... Takes personal phones calls for sure!!!
Even started a group to announce when AR members would be in other cities --  ARups Group ---  All the best - Lynn
