To all of our United family of brokers and agents in Houston. On behalf of myself, and our CEO Dan Duffy, I know we speak for everyone inside of our United Real Estate Corporate office and throughout our growing supportive network of offices and agents, that you have been in our thoughts and prayers these past few weeks. Our immediate concern is still for you and your loved ones continued safety. I have been in communication consistently with Dianne Moore, our and your leader in the Houston market. She has kept me up to date of what is still an ever-changing dynamic for many citizens of the greater Houston area. We recognize that this is not only an enormous disaster, but also the largest natural disaster in the history of our country.
We are a country filled with people of resolve, and the citizens of the state of Texas have as much spirit as any group of individuals I have ever met. I know the waters will recede and Houston will begin to assess the damage, repair and rebuild. Houston and its citizens will continue to be an example of a great large American city! It won’t be immediate and some areas will take longer than others, but business and the continued growth of the greater Houston area will resume.
Recognizing this, the United Real Estate leadership team wants to help the 240 agents who work for United Real Estate | Houston how we can during this transition time. An immediate action we will take is to waive your monthly fees for October, November and December. At this time our Houston office has not been damaged and we will open back up when it is safe to do so. We will ensure you have no interruption to the full support services you receive from United Real Estate, while removing the monthly fee obligation.
You should also know that your United family from California to New Jersey to Florida, everywhere in between, and back to Texas have asked how they can help. Many have already donated to different charitable organizations to help the citizens of Houston. All of us at United are continuing to think of you and will be in touch again soon on how we can support you and the greater Houston area to slowly but steadily get your lives and business back on track. We are United!
