One thing we've learned since the initial stay at home order back in March is that home really is essential and real estate activities must go on, but we can definitely be smarter and safer about them given the current public health climate.

There is no shortage of news about the spread of COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus). In just a few short weeks COVID-19 has emerged as a significant global disruptor with a growing public health impact in America: schools and child care centers are limiting attendance; businesses are instructing employees to work from home; community events are being cancelled; and health care systems are showing strain.

If you've been to our office lately (927 Studewood, Suite 200), you'll notice that someone's been drawing on the walls!

And, we couldn't be more excited about it!

Boulevard Realty (and its agents) pride themselves on giving back to the communities in which we work. As a fun way to showcase our impact and the causes we're passionate about, we're adding every organization we've donated to, to our wall. Stop by often to see what new organizations are being added every day and see the difference our agents make in their communities...and feel free to stay a while! If you haven't tried it out yet, our Yourspace, co-working space is open to the public 7 days a week, courtesy of Boulevard Realty (just another way we love giving back).
