COVID-19 Response from Joyner Fine Properties

At Joyner Fine Properties, we care deeply about the health and well-being of our clients, our agents, our employees, and our communities. While COVID-19 has greatly impacted our way of life, we remain open for business at this time and are ready to help you in the home buying or home selling process. We continue to closely monitor guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health officials for guidance in making informed decisions. Because we are committed to make buying and selling your home the finest experience possible, here are some of the steps we are taking:

Safety Measures

  • Extensively cleaning on a daily basis and sanitizing high impact touch areas with the ability to conduct additional cleaning if necessary.
  • Asking our agents and staff to keep themselves safe by frequently washing their hands and requiring that they stay home if sick.
  • Encouraging employees and agents to work from home utilizing phone, text, video conferencing, and email to conduct business.
  • Eliminating out-of-state business travel for our employees and non-essential visits from outside vendors.

Office Visits

  • At this time, our offices in the Greater Richmond area are open for business and ready to serve our clients within the CDC's recommended 10-person limit in shared spaces.
  • We are happy to make accommodations for your comfort level during this time and can offer many services virtually, such as Buyer Consultations done through video chat and tours of potential houses.
  • To be connected with a REALTOR® who will provide you with the finest service and expertise, email us at relo@joynerfineproperties.com or visit us online at joynerfineproperties.com.

Open Houses

  • We are encouraging agents to show homes by appointment only.
  • If an agent and seller make a decision to hold an open house, it must be in alignment with the 10-person limit in a social space, practicing social distancing.
  • We are encouraging agents to provide alcohol-based hand sanitizers in the entryway and soap and disposable towels in bathrooms and to consider asking open house visitors to disinfect their hands upon entering the home.

We are dedicated to serving the community with the finest real estate experience and will continue to monitor federal, state, and local agencies' guidelines, providing updates as things change. We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy during this season.

To My Valued Clients and Friends,

In light of recent developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19, it has become clear that the world is facing an unprecedented event. I understand you will continue to have housing needs, but the health and well being of my clients, friends, occupants, families, and community will remain my top priority.

I pray for the many friends I have with businesses that rely on patrons visiting their establishment. If you can order a To-Go meal, do so! Here are some great places to get your TO-GO meal:

RVAHUB

Burma Sushi and Salads

Plentiful Food  

Fredericksburg:

Foode

 

My commitment to you:

I am implementing the following precautions to address the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus:

* Adhering to all CDC protocols and guidelines, at a minimum. I am balancing the needs of my clients (sellers and buyers) who have housing needs, by eliminating open houses until April 6, avoiding large gatherings and encouraging creative, efficient ways of exposing or showing homes during this crisis.

* Actively assessing risks in real-time to ensure the safety of our community, clients, friends, and family. As I obtain more information, I will adjust my plan, as necessary.

* Maintaining a high level of cleanliness and sanitation practices in my office, home, and car. I am committed to keeping spaces and belongings clean and sanitized. While I assess the safety of doing so, I am available by phone, video chat, or email. 

* Encouraging the use of booties, soap, wipes and hand sanitizers in common areas if a showing does take place at a vacant and occupied homes. 

* Recommending that you stay home when feeling sick and lets chat on FaceTime and I can take you for a virtual tour of homes you are interested in. I have a lot of resources at my fingertips to help with your search. 

* Conducting fewer face to face meetings and leveraging technology to reduce the opportunities to spread the virus further. We have so many options available to make the selling and buying process continue.  

For my clients:

I am already prepared to move my business online, from virtual meetings, video tours, FaceTime/Skype showings, hands-free open house registration ( after April 6), digital signatures, and online transaction management system. I understand that there are many concerns around COVID-19 and I want to assure you that I am working hard to protect my clients, staff, and tenants to prevent the spread of disease while doing my best to continue helping you buy or sell a home.  

For those visiting my office at 319 Maple Ave Richmond, VA 23226

At this time, we plan to remain open. But we are working remotely with a few staff members at the office. I am working from home and always available to answer any questions or concerns.  

Thank you for your understanding. I am still seeing strong demand, low-interest rates and a spring season that might be shifted a bit just like everything else in our lives. But this too shall pass. I hope that you all stay well and healthy, and I appreciate your patience and good spirit as we navigate this event.

Some Highlights

  • The COVID-19 pandemic is causing an economic slowdown.
  • The good news is, home values actually increased in 3 of the last 5 U.S. recessions and decreased by less than 2% in the 4th.
  • All things considered, an economic slowdown does not equal a housing crisis, and this will not be a repeat of 2008.

Where to Play Basketball in Richmond

Richmond Basketball Courts

Sure, a lot of our real estate agents are glued to the TV on March weekends catching the big games. But the fun and excitement of your full-court action are never far away here in Richmond.

There are plenty of gyms and community sports centers where you can enjoy a game or get your brand of exercise. Basketball, softball, tennis, swimming, and more are popular here.

Because the weather is so mild most of the year, you'll find plenty of indoor and outdoor courts to choose from. Plus, many communities have adult leagues and weekend teams to join. Of course, kids, teens, and twenty-somethings will find plenty of opportunities.

Let's look at five favorites for basketball in and around Richmond:

  1. RockIt Sports – 3001 East Parham Road, Henrico, VA 23228
    RockIt Sports is just outside central Richmond and only a "full-court drive" away from Henrico homes for sale. Established in 2013, RockIt provides quality personalized instruction in a range of athletic pursuits. In addition to its NCAA regulation-size hardwood court, there's also an additional hardwood loft court upstairs, bullpen setups, and a 10"x10" indoor infield.
  2. Big Ben's Home Court – 2206 Westwood Avenue, Richmond, VA 23230
    Big Ben's Home Court is dedicated to providing the authentic basketball experience to young people. It leads a variety of basketball camps aimed at kids and teens. Not only that, but it also offers social events to have fun and build ties within the community. There's a state of the art hardwood court, men's and women's locker rooms, and bleachers. All this is just minutes from Richmond homes for sale.
  3. Woodlake Swim & Racquet Club – 5000 Woodlake Village Parkway, Midlothian, VA 23112
    Woodlake offers fitness and athletic equipment in a beautiful environment a short way outside of Richmond and close to Midlothian homes for sale. The Woodlake Swim & Racquet Club is an ideal option for an energetic adult lifestyle. Besides basketball, you can find dedicated personal trainers, one of the region's best aquatic centers, and the Kid Zone featuring age-appropriate active play outdoors.
  4. Henrico County Open Gym Programs – 6800 Staples Mill Road, Henrico, VA 23228
    Henrico County Open Gym Programs are operated by the Department of Parks & Recreation. Two different county facilities are actively offering open gym time, including Eastern Henrico Recreation Center and Deep Run Recreation Center. Both these modern, stylish facilities are fully stocked with indoor and outdoor b-ball opportunities as well as fun for the whole family.
  5. Shady Grove Family YMCA – 11255 Nuckols Road, Glen Allen, VA 23059
    Shady Grove Family YMCA is one of the most beloved of the 17 YMCA campuses sprinkled throughout the Richmond area. Conveniently located near Glen Allen homes for sale, it's been helping kids and adults build healthy habits since 1995. It currently offers seasonal sports, a weight loss program, pre-school, and much more. There is something for everyone here!
