Buying or selling a home is not easy, even in the best of times, but it’s especially difficult during a global pandemic. In order to mitigate the myriad of risks that come with viewing homes, meeting with clients and in-person closings, Coldwell Banker Elite has launched the Home Safe™ Certification. This is the area’s first COVID-19 safety-specific training and certification for agents who want to learn best practices regarding safe showings by using virtual tools and technology for the safest possible interactions. These agents commit to a Five Point Performance Promise designed to help clients stay safe during this health crisis.
Home Safe™ Certified agents promise to meet five primary performance goals that include Digital Transactions, Safe Showing Practices, Virtual Meetings as well as using safety–conscious industry partners throughout the transaction. Coldwell Banker Elite has always been on the cutting edge of technology and now, more than ever, these tools and resources are necessary to make the real estate transaction as safe as possible.
