Welcome to the new normal. How the real estate industry will move forward will be quite different into the foreseeable future. We have put protocol in place for both our Seller and Buyer clients. These are based on Guidance from the Governor’s Office, CDC guidelines, Best Practices from the PA Association of REALTORS and Compass, our Brokerage. They are fluid and will be updated on a regular basis.
