Dennison Capen Group Realty
March 24th, 2020
The well-being and health of our team members, clients, and vendors are our highest priority. During these uncertain times, we want you to be aware of the extra precautions we are taking to help prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus and comply with Governor Kate Brown’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” Executive Order.
Below are the current actions we’re taking to adhere to Executive Order NO. 20-12:
Our Offices | The Keller Williams Portland Central offices are closed to the general public, agents, and staff. Our team is working remotely by telework to continue day to day business while adhering to social distancing protocol. Although our physical offices are closed, all of our resources remain available to conduct uninterrupted business.
Client Communication | The majority of communication between our team and clients will be held by video or phone conferencing. In situations where it’s absolutely necessary to meet in person, a single team member will meet the client and remain at least 6 feet away at all times.
Before in person meetings, all clients will be asked if they are or have recently been sick and if anyone in their household is or has recently been sick. Our team members reserve the right to refuse in person meetings if there has been a recent history of illness in the household.
Open Houses | We are postponing open houses in our listings until further notice. Instead, we are offering 3D Virtual Tours through Matterport to allow individuals to tour a property from the comfort of their own home. We are also utilizing other creative marketing mediums when necessary to further the property viewing experience.
Property Tours | Property tours of our listings will be determined by the seller of the property. If a seller chooses to allow home showings they must sign a document agreeing that they are comfortable with property tours in their home. Homes that offer property tours will be equipped with gloves and hand sanitizer for use during showings. A single property flyer will be on display in a washable frame for additional property details. Agents can scan the QR code on the flyer with their phone to view property details as they tour.
Property Showings | Our team is offering property showings with select buyer agents. If you wish to see a property, you are required to sign a document indicating you’re comfortable with touring the home. Clients and agents must take separate vehicles to the property and remain at least 6 feet away from each other during the showing. We will provide protective gloves to wear while in the property and hand sanitizer.
Vendors | Our team members will primarily work remotely with vendors for onsite work. In the extreme event we are needed in person, all previously mentioned social distancing procedures will be strictly adhered to. Prior to agreeing to working with a vendor, we will present you their current policies related to the most recent Executive Order.
We remain committed to advocating for your best interests during this global health crisis and will continue to adjust our business practices to do so. Thank you for your continued support during this time.
Note: The above actions are subject to change based on future Executive Orders, do not represent official guidance from the government, and may not be comprehensive. For up to date guidance from the state of Oregon regarding the coronavirus visit https://govstatus.egov.com/or-covid-19
