That is a question you hear a lot this time of the year. Usually, it is a welcomed question. It is nice to be able to take a step back and reflect on the people and things in your life that you are thankful for.
This year though, it is different. To call 2020 a trying year is an understatement. With all the stress we have been under this year it is that much more important to reflect on what we are grateful for.
Here are a few things we are thankful for here at Vitralogy:
We are thankful for the empathy that so many property managers have shown to their tenants. They have had the difficult job of balancing human needs and business needs, and have consistently put the human needs first.
We are thankful for the dependability of the stationary engineers across the country. They have put themselves at risk by continuing to go into work every day to keep residential, commercial, healthcare, and other facilities running.
We are thankful for the concern of so many real estate owners. They have forgone rents, extended deadlines, and provided assistance to their tenants.
We are thankful for the diligence of handymen, porters, janitors, housekeepers, doormen, and so many others. They have worked harder than ever to help keep the facilities we live in, work in, and get healthcare from clean and inhabitable.
We are thankful for the hard work of our own team members who consistently adapt to the ever-changing requirements of local compliance laws and maintenance routines.
Finally, we are thankful for the potential that lays ahead for all of us. As vaccines become available and the pandemic subsides there will be opportunities for all of us in the real estate industry to help tenants to return and rebuild their daily lives again.
Despite all that has happened this year, we are thankful.
