Harcourts and COVID-19

By Kirsten Friedli

The last few weeks have been challenging for all industries, and real estate is no exception!

However, we are fortunate to be open and operating, albeit a little differently…

We have modified many of our practices and systems, in line with government restrictions, and in the interest of keeping our clients, staff and other people we interact with as safe as possible.

Our agents are still contactable
Many of our team are working remotely, however, we are still available and are working with buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants to keep everything moving forward. Social distancing measures and hygiene protocols are strictly in place across our business.

The best way of contacting us is via phone, email, social media or video conferencing. We would love to hear from you to answer any questions you may have about one of our properties, the local real estate market, your own home, or any property-related advice you may be seeking during this period.

You can still search, find and inspect properties online. Your search for a new place to call home, or perhaps your ideal home, need not stop because of government restrictions. Our websites www.propertpeople.net.au and www.lifestylesre.com.au remain as your ‘go-to’ resource for all our latest listings and rental properties.

Our properties will shortly be featuring virtual tours, and all our properties are captured with high-quality professional photographs and floor plans. You can easily first inspect properties from the comfort of your own home.

Property Inspections and Appraisals
And while the traditional open home and property inspections are currently not permitted, we will be conducting private inspections by appointment.

These one-on-one inspections will adhere to the appropriate social-distancing and hygiene protocols, keeping all people as safe as possible.

Our agents can offer virtual or digital inspections, including appraisals. Contact one of our agents to discuss this.

Social Media
Our social media pages remain a reliable source to not only keep in contact with us, but we will also be updating our community regularly through these channels – so we encourage you to connect with Harcourts The Property People and Harcourts Lifestyles.

These are unprecedented times; however, we will work together and keep you updated on any further changes.

In the meantime, we hope you remain healthy and safe and look after each other.

We want to assure you that we with you all the way. As a community, we will come through this stronger and even more resilient than ever before.
