- A face mask is mandatory at all properties/spaces, by all parties present. We will provide for our own masks but as required by NYS regulations, Brokers and Agents must provide back up disposable masks and shoe covers. Note that due to the nature of our work, we do not wear gloves onsite in order to properly handle our camera equipment along with its many settings and touch screens.

It is the Real Estate Broker's AND/OR Agent’s responsibility to ensure this information is being collected and that everyone's safety onsite is handled as required by the state. Furthermore, it is the Broker/Agent's responsibility to ensure no one is symptomatic, has traveled outside the area are asked of the homeowners.
