At Coldwell Banker Paradise, we have long believed in the larger family to which we all belong. During the recent visit by Hurricane Irma, we would like to thank the many individuals that pushed themselves to protect and aid others.

We saw these efforts in our staff as they worked long hours to prepare homes before the storm, and provide reassurance and recovery after the storm, such as waiting in lines until late at night to obtain last minute materials for those who didn’t have shutters, or wading through streets flooded waist deep to assess whether homes were damaged after the storm. They were also busy answering messages and feeding information to those out of the area throughout the event to calm their fears.

We are so proud of our property management team who have worked tirelessly to communicate with owners and tenants throughout Irma. Prior to the storm our maintenance team worked on securing properties and our property managers answered endless calls from concerned owners and tenants.

Since the storm our managers have waded through water in many areas that flooded to assess the condition of homes, getting assistance where needed all while offering encouragement to those left without power and cell service.

As home owners ourselves, we feel very fortunate that our team had the foresight to have a written, detailed hurricane disaster plan which had recently been updated by Barbara Ford, Director of Operations, Human Resources and Legal, along with Lisa Djahed, Director of Communications and aptly organized by Michelle Merz, Administrator of Human Resources & Operation. This enabled the 24 members of our property management division to jump into motion as the storm advanced.

More gratifying still were those neighbors who selflessly went out of their way to help each other. And we are immensely grateful for every utility truck and utility worker, many of whom traveled out of state to reach us, for bringing us back into some sense of normalcy.

We would like to thank all those who put forth their effort to help and reassure those around them as if they were family. It truly is a time for gratitude.
