Controlling the Chaos via Collegiality
Welcome to Friday everyone – my favorite day of the week! Why? Because I earmark this day to write, create & grow. This week’s focus in on Episode 23 – Double Down podcast – as the Queen of Windermere Standards of Practice again agreed to mic up with me and do Part II of a conversation around collegiality within industry. Our conversation is specific to right NOW and how we can each play a role in controlling the chaos – at least, where we can. I fully see & feel the chaos; that should be strongly stated. I am pleased with the real & open conversations happening in our office meetings, manager meetings & owners meetings. Keep it up!
Thank you Diane Terry for your willingness to lead our In-City Standards of Practice group and willingness to yet again; mic up with me. To everyone, let’s keep the dialog going and create a further impact as we navigate chaos, serve the needs of our clients and roll up our sleeves in doubling down in collegiality within industry. It’s tricky; it’s possible. Interested? Listen in…

…AND, as we launch into our first weekend in ability to host open houses in 2021 (Phase 2 counties) – you’ve heard this from me before: Go Slow, Do No Harm. We must take every precaution outlined by WA State & amplified by the NWMLS + your office.
Note: a few more comments below if you & your clients are considering open houses…
All in, for safety. All in, for collegiality. – Laura

Open House Considerations
The first consideration is one you need to make. What does the next 30-60+ days look like for you with respect to hosting open houses. Do you want to do them? Do you not want to? If you do not want to, do you have Seller pressures (and how will you handle these)? Please take time with these questions before proceeding.
The 2nd consideration is one you need to make with your Seller. You will need to be able to speak to necessity in hosting open houses at this time to accomplish the exposure needed to sell their home. Do they understand the risks & requirements that we/you must follow to do this safely?
If you choose to host open houses within this environment, the 3rd consideration becomes becoming fully prepared to follow all health & safety measures as outlined by NWMLS & your office.
