These are challenging times. We at CENTURY 21 Realty Partners are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to follow best practices to fight the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. For those that have not already done so, we advise you to keep up to date with the latest information and guidance from the Texas Department of State Health Services (dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus). 

While it is our intent to keep our offices open as long as advisable, quarantine or other measures may result in some offices being closed during normal business hours. To reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 our offices will have limited staff or agent presence. We will advise if any of our offices close or have restricted hours. Our agents are already very familiar with working remotely. They will continue to communicate with our clients by phone, video, and email, market and show property, write contracts that can be signed electronically, and help transactions close smoothly. If one of our agents is sick or taking care of a family member, another one of our agents will be available to make sure we continue to provide industry-leading real estate service. 

Sellers: We are encouraging buyers to follow proper hygiene as recommended by health authorities (see below). We recommend that commonly touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucets, drawers, and stair railings be cleaned with disinfectant after each showing. If you are uncomfortable having your home shown please notify […]
