I take you and your family's safety very seriously. Out of an abundance of caution my office, MaxWell Polaris, has prepared the following list of suggestions and precautions that we can take while we market your home for sale given the evolving situation with COVID-19. 

  1. When preparing for showings, open all doors within the home and leave lights on.

  2. Consider providing hand sanitizer at the entrance of your home. 

  3. We encourage you to not be home, this helps buyers feel more comfortable.
