Together is how we will get through this!

We are grateful to everyone working in essential businesses right now, know that we appreciate your sacrifice!

As we work from home right now, like so many others, we want you to know that we’ve been thinking about you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to say hello, ask a question or let us know if we can help.

Also, we wanted to communicate what we are doing to ensure health and safety for the buyer and seller during this time. Scroll down to see the detailed list. 

We wanted to pass along this example to encourage you on what to do during this time: “Think about a 1,000 piece puzzle. On one side is a map of the world, on the other is a picture of you. Trying to solve the word puzzle is extremely difficult and very time-consuming.  Solving the puzzle of you is simpler, and achievable.  By solving the puzzle for you, the world’s solution also comes through and becomes clear.”
Focus on the part of the puzzle with your picture on it. And if you aren’t sure what to do, start with what’s in front of you right now: one idea to outline, one small project to tackle,
one person to call or a person to check-up on.
Do what you can with where you are and what you have. 

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. – Maya Angelou
