Business Unusual with Monument Sotheby’s International Realty

The following “Business Unusual” account is part of our new initiative, Collecting in Quarantine. With current mandates for all non-essential businesses to close, business is anything but usual in Maryland. In the Business Unusual series, MdHS is asking business employees, owners, customers, passers-by and neighborhood residents to visually share their experiences during the COVID-19 crisis.

Friday, April 17, 2020 – On this day, Erica Solomon from Lauraville shared the photos below along with the following dispatch:

I’m a licensed realtor with Monument Sotheby’s International Realty and during the COVID19 pandemic the real estate industry was deemed to be an essential business. The National Association of Realtors issued COVID19 showing protocol for conducting property tours . The photo shows me dressed in my face mask, eye protection, gloves and foot covers on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020. I’ve also included a copy of the showing protocol.
