A message from Place CEO, Damian Hackett
We're not changing what we do, we're changing the way we do it.
Australia, along with the rest of the world is facing an unprecedented challenge as we fight to stop the spread of COVID-19. We are doing our part to help where we can, whilst aiming to minimise disruption to our clients, as we remain operational and ready to work through any additional challenges. We’re all facing these circumstances together, but together we can rise and help each other.
Central to our focus is the health and safety of our people, our customers and the greater community. We are committed to making informed and respectful decisions based on the expert medical advice of the Australian authorities. That is why we welcome the decisions made to suspend Public Auctions and traditional Open Home Inspections and are committed to adapting.
Our salespeople have embraced the mandatory changes by hosting digital auctions, private inspections, online walk throughs and taking all other necessary measures such as social distancing and strict hygiene measures. Our official Private Inspection and Auction Policies can be downloaded below. We have made further appropriate adjustments to our internal operations, with staff across the network transitioning to working remotely. We have discovered new ways to stay connected virtually, sharing business updates and connecting with our teammates.
Since 2002, our business has overcome many unforeseen challenges. We remain committed to our promise of helping people find their happy Place and know that now, more than ever, our role in serving the community is top priority. The entire Place team have made commitments to their clients, honouring and exceeding that commitment by continuing to offer solutions to issues that may arise. To ensure we meet the changing government and community standards, we will remain vigilant in reviewing how we operate.
We are here to help in any way we can and will continue to publish content in relation to the property market and COVID-19 on our blog.
From our Place to yours, stay happy, healthy and stay positive.
On behalf of Place Estate Agents.
