5 Tips for Working from Home
1. Location, Location, Location
Try to find yourself a dedicated and comfortable spot to work that you can associate with your job and leave when you’re off the clock – that means get off the couch, and definitely out of bed.
2. Bring the Outdoors In
If you do not have any greens in your designated work from home location, consider adding some indoor plants to create a more inviting and creative space. Plus, they make your home’s air healthier!
3. Repurpose your commute
A major perk of working from home is ditching the commute. Use this time in the morning for a workout, self-renewal or family time.
4. Show your face
When possible, use video over the standard conference call to help create more interactions and avoid loneliness. Check out video conferencing resources such as Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype or GoToMeeting.
5. Create lists
Every morning create a list of what you will deliver by the end of the day. It it’s helpful, scribble these down the night before so you can dive straight into work in the morning.
If you don’t have a physical notepad handy, here are some great apps...
- Google Keep in G Suite. Keep offers a variety of tools for taking notes, including text, lists, images and audio
- Trello lets you organize your team's work and manage projects
- Monday helps you plan, organize, and manage your to-dos
We are living in unprecedented times and are acutely aware of the impact that Covid-19 is already having on our communities. In keeping our client’s safety and the safety of our community in mind, our team has discussed some precautionary measures for showings of our listings and showings to our buyers. Some of these measures include video consultations, virtual showings in our listings, video showings for buyers of any homes that are occupied, and physical distancing of at least 6 feet for in-person tours (vacant homes only).

If you are not in the market but looking for some good news – rates are at an all-time low – it is a great time to refinance. I would be happy to connect you with any of my preferred lenders for more information.
