Now is the time to support each other and our local businesses
To the Editor:
Recently, in an effort to better assist my agents in our current market, I decided to implement a “word of the week” at our office sales meetings. I started with the word “fear.”
I wanted to know what my agents were feeling. Instead of being fearful, as I thought they might be, they described themselves as being somewhat contemplative, but often in the position of consoling and comforting some of their clients who were fearful.
Comfort often comes simply from knowing we are not alone. Now, more than ever, it is a time to unite, be compassionate, lend a helping hand, give some advice. This is important not only for us as brokers, but as people in the community we work and live in.
We are all personally changed by our current conditions. Let us hope and have faith that this change will inevitably be for the better. We are all affected; we are all in this together.
