The global pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives, even in Hunt Country. We are all fumbling through the process of defining our “new normal”. For many people, their “new normal” includes the open spaces, fresh air and sylvan settings of Hunt Country. As the interest in country living increases, so does our opportunity to show more homes. Given the circumstances, now more than ever, it’s important we move forward in a measured way. Thomas & Talbot is committed to creating safe, meaningful and engaging relationships with clients. This means, throughout the sales process, we take extraordinary steps to ensure our agents, clients and community are safe.


Thomas & Talbot is committed to…

  • Working closely with the seller. We discuss our detailed policies for showing a house with the seller to ensure they feel comfortable and confident with the process.

  • Showing homes by appointment only. Appointments are required to show a home and we limit the number of showings each day. Appointments are booked with ample time between showings to clean, disinfect and prepare for the next appointment. 

  • Keeping our distance. We avoid shaking hands but are always happy to see clients. We always adhere to safe social distancing guidelines by keeping at least six feet between us. 

  • Wearing proper attire. For each showing, we request that everyone wears a mask. Should anyone need a mask, each agent has a supply available. 

  • Washing up. We always have a supply of hand sanitizer available and upon arrival, immediately show people to the washroom to wash their hands.

  • Refraining from touching. We request, when possible, that people refrain from touching any surfaces in the home.

  • Keeping it clean. Between showings, we take great care to use disinfecting wipes to clean any surfaces that were touched. We always disinfect the banisters, door handles and any other high-traffic surfaces.


Thomas & Talbot adheres to the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the National Association of Realtors to ensure that we keep ourselves, our clients and our community safe and healthy. We look forward to spreading our love of Hunt Country, and the marvelous lifestyle it affords us, in the safest way possible way.
