As we witnessed financial markets cascade into the most significant correction since the Great Recession, nearly 30 Million Americans finding themselves out of work, and the economy locked down, we decided to pause our marketing. In a time of disbelief and discomfort felt by all, we felt it was appropriate. Since we began our brokerage in 2017, a constant theme that we have adhered to is daring to be different in our path to disrupt how traditional real estate is marketed. The impact of COVID-19 on our sector has brought about change in quick order and those circumstances will likely be here for the immediate future. As we ramp back up, we are excited to expand upon this and IT’S GOING TO BE BIG!
As we began to emerge from the depths of this epidemic ordeal, we were hit with a different kind of adversity. One that has been an uncomfortable topic and an inconvenient truth for many to want to tackle: police brutality within the black community. The horrific death of George Floyd has brought this conversation to a boiling point and is one that we hope will finally receive the attention it deserves to make meaningful change.
Going through life not caring about the plight of another person (because it doesn’t directly impact yourself) is something that needs to be at the forefront of our thoughts moving forward; regardless of race, religion, sexual preference, and economic status. It’s paramount that compassion pour out of our community moving forward in times of duress and also on a daily basis in which we conduct our lives.
I ask that you take a moment out of your day to watch the attached video of when U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy delivered the news of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death. His words ring as true now as they were then and it’s important to be on the right side of history. Supporting #BLM doesn’t make you liberal; it makes you human, and very American.
Right or wrong, always honest.
