CONTACT

How we're helping our clients limit physical contact while buying of selling a home

We're all focused on reducing our exposure to Coronavirus. Businesses are busy figuring out ways to help customers through this challenge.


I've received statements from Royal LePage, my business landlord, my bank and others. All have suggested methods to interact with them to get our work done with less risk. I appreciate that.


Even my gym has adopted protocols to reduce the risk for those who chose to get fit there. It starts with the heavy use of hand sanitizers when entering the gym. A rigorous equipment clean up routine at the end of each workout follows. I'm impressed. If I'm going to be around other people it's nice to know that health and cleanliness are a priority.


Reducing unnecessary physical contact is also key. "Social distancing" is a proven method for slowing the spread of disease.


It occurs to me that our clients might want to know of services we provide that can help limit physical contact.


First, we are a virtual operation. You'll never need to come to our office. If we need to connect, we will come to you. Handshakes and hugs suspended for now. 


But, chances are we won't ever need to come to you. As Saskatoon's first and most experienced virtual brokerage we've mastered working without paper.


If we need face time, we can easily manage that virtually.


We're skilled at executing and moving documents electronically.


That means we can conduct an entire transaction without you being present.


 Write an offer
 Negotiate an agreement
Receive a deposit
 Deliver documents to your lender
 Manage your home inspection and get a report to your inbox
 Send documents and instructions to your lawyer


We even have a concierge service that allows you to arrange most aspects of your move online.


 Mover
 Utility connections
 Insurance
 Mail forwarding
 Identification updates
 Other moving services


This can all happen without your physical presence.


I'll also throw out the fact that we produce an impressive 3D tour for every residential listing we take. The tours give buyers an immersive viewing experience without a visit to the home. It's like Google Maps indoors. It's almost as good as being there.


If you're selling your home, this is an excellent tool for qualifying buyers. We can use it to reduce looky-loos and open houses.

Licensed in 1993, Norm brings a wealth of experience to TeamFisher. He has worked in every imaginable capacity including sales agent, office manager, team leader, broker and now, broker/owner. Norm has written a weekly review of the Saskatoon real estate market for more than 650 consecutive weeks which may make him the most consistent industry blogger in the world.

Norm is known for his passion for technology and can most often be found exploring and experimenting with the next big thing in real estate marketing. He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten. An open mind and a curious attitude are all that’s needed to continue to find new ways to serve our clients by delivering a faster, smoother, worry-free transaction,” says Norm.

In his spare time, Norm enjoys Crossfit and cycling, some years accumulating over 2,000 kilometres on the road. He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter. In 2015, he trekked the Peruvian Andes to Machu Picchu. In 2017 he walked the southern highlands of Iceland across mountains, sand, snow, ice, lava fields and forest for seven days. Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
