The Garcia Real Estate Group responds to COVID-19

A Message to our Clients and Neighbors
(Keep scrolling for all information)

We are here for you.

In these challenging times, the number one priority of The Garcia Real Estate Group is the safety and health of our clients and our community. If you are in need of something we can help you with and you don’t have support, please reach out. We are here.

In the real estate industry, and life as a whole, these are certainly new waters we find ourselves in. As I have had time to reflect over the past few days about what is happening in our community, our nation, and the world, I am astonished at the different ways in which we react to the uncertainty that this global pandemic has created. 

Sure, things are going to be hard—for some more than others. And, things are going to be different for all of us for some time to come. However, we can choose one of three ways to react:

1. React with fear and anger by complaining about the situation we are in and how we got here.


2. Put your head in the sand and just believe this will miraculously change, blow over and things will go back to business as usual.


3. Step up and be a leader and work toward innovative change in the way we behave and do things to help others through to the other side of these trying and difficult times. 

"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”

– John C. Maxwell and William A. Ward

Certainly, if you do not NEED to Sell or Buy a home right now, delaying your plans may be a wise decision. However, if you find yourself in the position that you have no choice, or you just feel it is the right time for you to either buy or sell a home, please rest assured.

Our team—The Garcia Real Estate Group & EXIT Heritage Realty—plan to lead our industry by finding new and better ways, developing innovative systems and processes to help our clients and our community safely navigate these challenging times while following the guidance and recommendations of our national, state and local health professionals.

Northern Virginia Family Service
Meals on Wheels
Save the Children
Center for Disaster Philanthropy

Other Ways to Help

* Offer assistance to at-risk neighbors by running errands, shopping or walking dogs.
* Stay in touch with loved ones, friends, classmates and co-workers from afar to check in.
* Stay up on your local news.
* Stock up, then stop. Panic buying contributes to shortages and more panic.
* Donate blood. The Red Cross emphasizes there is no evidence COVID-19 can be spread through blood.

Home Sales

With school and business closings, remote work, and social distancing, the real estate market will undoubtedly be impacted. If you have been in the process of selling or buying a home, things have changed.  We are here to help with this transition.


Although we are available to show properties, we are recommending we all maintain social distancing for the safety of both homeowners and buyers. The Garcia Real Estate Group has thoughtfully prepared a list of requirements for showing properties during the threat of the Covid-19. As always, our priority is the safety and health of our clients—both sellers and buyers—as well as our agents, other agents, potential buyers and the families of all.

The Garcia Real Estate Group has been a digital, paperless real estate team for years. Any offers can be presented virtually and can be signed using our electronic signature software. Should the need arise, any Buyer or Tenant does not have to leave the safety and comfort of home to submit and offer.

Buyer and Seller Consultations

It may not be your first priority at the moment, but our Team is here to conduct Buyer and Seller Consultations virtually. We can also provide Home Valuations and up-to-date market data as you plan for the future.

The Future

We are all optimistic that, with change, this will pass. If you are able and have been considering selling your home in the future, it may be a good time to get a head start on preparations. The Garcia Real Estate Group can virtually guide you through what would be best for your home.


The Garcia Real Estate Group is accountable to doing our part. We are all in this together.
