2020 has been a year full of unprecedented and unexpected happenings. Individuals and businesses have been hit hard by shutdowns and closings, but the commercial and energy real estate market has been quite different.
With Bank’s and Credit Union’s rates being so favorable, the door is wide open for buyers and borrowers to buy or refinance. This has directly translated to a massive uptick in title and escrow services, albeit in different ways. Our offices were moved to our homes and our communications were switched to strictly phone calls or zoom meetings. Closings were through a glass window or done as a drive through. We as a company had only one choice, to push forward. We came to the realization that a shutdown DOES NOT apply to us.
The phrase “New Normal” has been thrown around and most of the time has a negative connotation but we as a company have taken a different road. While others cut back, we surge forward. We use our new normal as a way to show our clients that we are resilient and will continue to provide great service across all of our markets.
I hate to be the one to quote Journey but “The wheel keeps on turning”.
