COVID-19 has dominated not only the headlines, but also the headspace of people across the planet. Physical restrictions and perceived limitations have dramatically altered the routines of life.
Unfortunately, the presence of the coronavirus has not created the absence of other diseases, accidents, and injuries that also cause people to seek medical care. As individuals receive care and transition between hospital, rehab facility, and home, they can now do so with greater peace of mind.

When the COVID-19 virus first hit the headlines, it seemed we didn’t know what to think. Once we were bombarded with headlines and mandates, we were afraid to think about what we were afraid of. Now that many places are opening up, there is still a lot of uncertainty, and we don’t know what to think. We had hoped this situation would go away in a short time, but one constant theme throughout this pandemic has been, “How long?” How long will it last? How long must we wear masks? How long will businesses be closed? How long before a vaccine is found? The longer we wait, the more plaintive our “How longs” get.
Many people confuse the terms “realtor,” “real estate agent,” and “broker.” They might use them interchangeably as if they were the same thing. Their work may overlap, but there are distinct differences in their qualifications and professional standing.
Simply put, a realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the largest trade group in the country. Realtors are tested, licensed experts in their fields and are held to the highest ethical standards. Brokers are usually managers who own agencies and have agents working for them. Agents are basically salespersons who bring buyer and seller together and earn a commission on the sale.
