In Illinois and Chicago’s Phase 3, real estate offices are allowed to open but will need to take precautions to keep their clients and staff safe. In this webinar, our experts will share best practices to prepare your offices, and the tools and resources you need to put in place in order to return to the office safely and successfully. We’ll give you the information you need, straight from our experts, including the legal and HR perspectives, as well as managing broker and property management guidance. We’ll address safety guidance for brokers, developing a reopening plan, and using your best judgment, as well as address questions like:
  • When can I reopen my office?
  • What does this new phase mean for our office spaces? What changes from now?
  • What steps can I take to ensure that my offices are meeting the new guidelines?
  • How can I best ensure my staff’s wellbeing?
  • What does this new phase mean for the business of real estate (i.e. open houses, showing tenant-occupied spaces, etc.)? What changes from now?
  • Am I liable if someone claims to contract COVID-19 (or another communicable illness) from an interaction in my space?
There will be opportunities for you to get answers to these questions and more! Register today so together, we can do our part to reopen Chicago safely and successfully.
