Italian Real Estate Agent Shares Covid-19 Impact

March 19, 2020 Italian Real Estate Agent Marco Tirelli Shares Covid-19 Impact V1-E40. Italy has more deaths and may have had the first cases of the virus before China. Travel from your sheltered locations is prohibited. There are no real estate transactions happening right now. The government is doing their best, the hospitals are overwhelmed. Here in the US we are in our first week of this pandemic. You can visit Tirelli Properties here

They have been locked down for a month. Marco has the feeling that life has no guarantees and so he is not personally worried.  That said, he is focusing on maintaining  his relationships with his agents and his clients and prospects.  They are not able to show property. While they are using  video to show property it is his believe, one I share, that it is very hard to sell a home without the Buyer going through the home. Technology is part of the Terilli Properties organization and has been so since the beginning of the internet. The people of Italy have their minds somewhere else at this time. Everything is closed, right now. He is calling it August, which in all of Europe the vacation month where most business are closed.

They have no forecast on when this lockdown will be over but they are getting by. Each person is sheltered in their homes and only able to go out for emergency purposes.  Food shopping is one of those “emergencies”. Italians love real estate, states Marco and his company has luxury properties all over Europe. Marco starts off the show sharing his focus which is not just getting a commission. Marco believes, “We dream of a fair, clean and humane world. We believe in people and solidarity-based collaboration. Every day we aim to create and inspire our community to adopt a socially responsible and sustainable business model.” Italian Real Estate Agent Shares Covid-19 Impact

Not living in fear, perspective, hope and caring

Not living in fear, perspective, hope and caring in this time of Covid-19, the offical title for the corona virus pandemic that is sweeping the world right now.  People all over the world are living with this new reality. A virus that is fast moving and very contagious has made it from China, through Italy and now here in the US. There was political maneuvering from the Oval Office that promises to make it worse in the states.  Federal response has been slow and plodding. Fortunately the individual State officials are stepping up in the wake of the response to protect their citizens. Here in Massachusetts our Governor has already taken strong actions.

Later today we are doing a podcast on Broker-Talk.com with a Luxury Agent from Milan, Italy. He will share with us what his country and his business has been doing over the last month of this pandemic in his country. There are so many questions here and it is now a time for action to protect yourself and your family. Washing hands, cleaning surfaces, limiting time around people in public is the beginning of protecting yourself.

Real estate industry continues to go on. People are still buying and selling homes and now they are using new approaches.  Live video tours are taking the place of open houses. Private showings are replacing group showings. If you are sick, STAY HOME.  That should be easy because most business have already been shut down due to the pandemic. Schools are closed, restaurants have no seatings and are only doing take out.  At this point it is less than a week since the Federal Government even admitted there is an issue and this is months after they were made aware. Now is not the time to be making or loosing political points, it is a time for Americans to show our extraordinary resolve and spirit. Stay well. Not living in fear, perspective, hope and caring
