SPONSORED POST: Teri Adler of Pinnacle writes about her experiences in real estate during this time:
As a local Wellesley resident, Pinnacle real estate agent, and mother and wife I am always seeing this great town of ours through so many lenses. Now, with the pandemic, the lens is a little more cloudy, but through the new guidelines that have shaped our lives, there is so much about Wellesley that has become clearer than ever.
I’ve really not stopped working once during the quarantine. When it became clear a shutdown was imminent in March, there were families, who for pressing personal reasons (not discretionary moves), still needed to buy or sell a home. Pinnacle quickly put every recommended precaution in place so that we could safely conduct those showings. I have watched tired doctors and other essential workers gather their families and drive into Wellesley to find a home where they could live comfortably and have access to outdoor space.
The buyers who are calling for showings are mostly young couples coming from Boston. I see in their eyes now more than ever how they are ready to breathe deeply in their own backyard and not have to share a staircase and elevator with neighbors. I smile knowing they are about to gain so much more by choosing to live in Wellesley and I am excited for them to discover it. I am actually grateful to have been there helping people find their ray of sunshine during a dark time in the form of “finding home.”
