FINANCIAL RESOURCES for those affected by COVID-19

Dear Neighbors,

As the world faces unprecedented challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unsettling to think about business issues when some of our Neighbors may be fighting for their lives or facing financial hardships. This is the moment for communities to lead, support, and unite. The communities we serve comprise of Neighbors sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. As Realtors, we are here for our Neighbors and the community at large.

If you are suffering a financial hardship, we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of the many resources available to you to help you through the current crisis.
