Updated Covid-19 Safety Guidelines

by DeVore Design, April 9, 2020

DeVore Design continues to serve the needs of real estate agents throughout Central Florida. However, we have implemented strict policies and procedures to protect the safety of sellers, real estate agents and our staff.

First, we have manufactured our own cotton masks for our field photographers. The masks were made by my own mother, Jeanne DeVore, each with care and precision. These are not N-95 masks that are critical to our healthcare workers. N-95 masks should be reserved for first responders and healthcare workers. These are cotton masks made from a design recommended by the CDC. We are also wearing reusable, washable shoe covers inside properties.

We are limiting the number of properties our photographers shoot each day.

We have also implemented a “no touch” policy, so our photographers will not be touching light switches, personal items or any décor.

We are asking the sellers leave the property as permitted by any shelter in place restrictions. This could include waiting outside on the patio, waiting outside in a running car or any other permissible options.

We are asking real estate agents to meet our photographers at the property to conduct a preparedness and pre-shoot walkthrough. This way we can work together to identify any parts of the home that may not be ideal for photos or video.

We also ask that real estate agents and our photographers maintain 6 feet distance during the shoot.

Finally, we have implemented a pre-screening questionnaire that will be emailed. This questionnaire is designed to identify any potential exposure to Covid-19 in the last 14 days. This should be passed on to your sellers as well.

This is designed to protect all of us – real estate agents, sellers and DeVore Design staff.

With these guidelines in place it is imperative the properties are ready upon arrival. We have full guidelines for preparation on our website, and in your user profile you can download a branded prep sheet with your logo and contact information – which can be supplied directly to our sellers.

Thank you for your support – I know we are all navigating uncharted waters, and we want to be your partner through this. If there is anything that we can do to help alleviate concerns you or your sellers have, please reach out.

And again, thank you for your valued business!
