LAVAL, QC, March 27, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - The real estate brokerage sector is deeply impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Québec's largest real estate broker network, RE/MAX Québec rigorously implemented governmental guidances, closing its offices and scaling down its operations as a way to contribute to the collective effort.
To support its network's 4,107 agents during this slowdown in business, RE/MAX Québec has decided to suspend royalty fee payment for April.
"We wanted to provide tangible support and some relief to all of our team members, who work hard to offer clients exceptional service and expertise. Although these are difficult circumstances, our agents remain available to serve their clients, many of whom have sold their property and must find new housing," said Pierre Titley, President of RE/MAX Québec.
RE/MAX Québec encourages the public to follow government guidelines and keep house hunting by visiting its website.
Technological tools make it possible for agents to continue to perform tasks, such as real estate transactions, without meeting clients in person.
