Coronavirus Client & Company Update from CEO & Co-Founders Creig and Carla Northrop
Hello. It is our privilege to reach out to you on behalf of Northrop Realty’s 250 agents and administrative staff, all of whom continue to service our clients remotely and virtually. We would like to take this opportunity to update you on how Northrop Realty remains open for business by continuing to follow the CDC’s safety protocols. Although our offices are closed to the public right now, we are connecting and supporting the communities we serve, and our agents and administrative staff are playing an important role.
Last month, in support of our local and small businesses, we launched the #TakeoutThursday campaign which blossomed to #MDSupportsTakeout and #DESupportsTakeout as a collective effort to help keep small business owners in Maryland and Delaware thriving during this difficult time.
We’ve also teamed up with WBAL-TV, 98 Rock and WBAL News Radio for Operation Shop Local, an initiative that allows Maryland small business owners to submit direct links to their company’s website via WBAL-TV’s landing page to purchase gift cards that are redeemable at a later time. By sharing our support for buying local, supporting local and spending local on our social media channels, we have created a network of local boutiques, convenience stores, restaurants, salons, bakeries, delicatessens, tradespeople and more who are still providing service to front line workers, first responders and our communities.
Our Virtual Options Serve You
Our brokerage’s obligation is to serve our communities with their safety as our top priority. Our state-of-the-art technology and systems give our clients the ability to have virtual listing appointments, virtual staging, 3D Matterport virtual tours and 2D floorplans to view homes from the comfort of their couch.
We have taken unprecedented steps to put additional safety measures in place for our clients, agents, and administration staff which include reducing our client’s in-person interaction by offering flexible virtual consultations, e-signatures, electronic contracts, and offers presented remotely.
Together, We Will Make It Through
These times are challenging like nothing any of us have ever seen and yet the humanity that binds us all together as a community and as a company is stronger than ever.
We are all very grateful and we want you to know that when you are ready to buy or sell a home, we are here to help with safety and care throughout the process.
We are extremely proud of the Northrop Realty company and we are all so grateful to our clients during these uncertain times. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and above all take care of one another.
We are here for you and we will continue to serve our communities now and in the future.
Thank you very much.
