With Covid19 making its way through the world, businesses are faced with a cope or die mentality. As a Real Estate Company, we are constantly making plans for the future and one of those new plans is how do we deal with disruptions such as a Covid Virus, natural catastrophes or other world wide events that effect everyone.
Covid19 is going to force many industries to change, including our own. If there isn't a real estate company out there not thinking about how to become better prepared for the future, they will not be around. One thing that Covid19 has showed me is how irrelevant an office space is becoming to our business today. People are looking for simplicity at a good price, period!
Real Estate Brokers have always believed that office space in the community is essential to their business. What they have failed to realize is that its not the office thats important, but your agents within the community and how they interact with it. Having good Agents working and communicating with local buyers and sellers is the key.
The future won't be Zillow, Franchises, Trulia, Realtor.com, but good local Agents working the for best interest of their clients and community.
