Keller Williams Realty-Ooltewah

How Team Darmody is able to help real estate clients during social distancing.

Our office systems at Team Darmody have been built in such a way that we are still able to continue serving you during this Corona crisis.

Team Darmody is high tech by choice. We have invested in preparations for virtual open houses, virtual tours, virtual contracts and closings. 

Three-Dimensional Scans on All Homes Listed by TeamDarmody

Our listing customers shouldn’t worry about canceled open houses. Since we create and publish online an interactive, three-dimensional scans of all homes listed by TeamDarmody agents, buyers can still explore every nook and cranny of a home for sale without creating a public-health risk.  We run a digital-marketing campaign for every listing to bring plenty of folks through your home online.

Video-Chat Tours of Any Listing, Including Homes Listed by Other Brokerages 

Homes listed by other brokerages can be toured in person or virtually (meaning I’ll go and make you a personal video) , via a video chat. On a video-chat tour, a TeamDarmody agent broadcasts what we see on a walkthrough of the home, responding to your requests to pan left or zoom in. Schedule the tour as before, simply for a video-chat tour.

Precautions for In-Person Tours 

We’re still also hosting in-person tours of listings, but with precautions to protect your health:

• Virtual tours for anyone with a sniffle: No one should tour with cold or flu symptoms. If you’re sick or might be sick, just ask for a video-chat tour.

• A healthy agent: If one of our agents has a cough, we’ll find another to host the showing.

• Avoiding close contact: TeamDarmody agents won’t ask customers to shake hands, staying six feet away from you throughout the tour.  We are all technologically set to manage the entire real estate process from our home offices.

We’ll Be Straight With You Through the Ups and Downs 

Because Keller Williams is the world largest brokerage, we are backed by one enormous customer database, we know before almost anyone else what’s happening to demand. And because we’re Keller Williams, we’ll be straight with you about what we know.

Over the Past Few Days, The Housing Market Took a Hit 

Demand held up surprisingly well until the stock-market panic on Thursday, March 12. But with measures to slow the spread of coronavirus expanding to more cities, we expect that this Wednesday’s report will show a big drop in activity. Some buyers will see this as an opportunity to get the home of their dreams at a good price, with historically low mortgage rates. Others will wait until the end of the recession that has almost certainly begun.

Team Darmody is Here for You 

We’re still a small business, and a service business through and through. Now more than ever, we need to take care of you. If you have a question, please call or email us at

Stay healthy! And thank you for your support,
