Supporting The Local Community During COVID-19 [Zoom Video]

supporting the local community

There is more to talk about than just real estate right now.  One of those things is how to support your local community.

Jason and Joe have a candid conversation about what they are doing during this challenging time.

They would like to offer their support to front line workers, the people who are sick, the people who are not working and our community members who are struggling.


Supporting the Local Community Video

In this video Jason and Joe use the Zoom Video Platform for the first time.  They were able to create this video with each other from their homes.  This was their first time using Zoom but they think you will enjoy it.

They discuss some of the issues that people are struggling with, some life hacks, how they are adapting, how they are supporting the local economy and just chopping it up.

If you would like them to promote your local business, or need any help shopping or running errands please call, text or email and let them know.



hey everybody I’m Joe Kiser and I’m
Jason Fox we are The Madrona Group with John L. Scott real

awesome. well things look a little
different today
tell them why Jason.

well we’re using Zoom
technology and we’re both broadcasting
from different locations.

why are we
reaching out to everybody today?

We just wanted to touch base and kind of
talk about staying connected with the
local community and how to navigate the current
conditions with confidence.

well we often talk about how we’re here to help
in real estate you know.  there are alot of other needs in our community.

Jason and I are both pretty healthy so anybody you know is having a

hard time getting to grocery stores or needs some errands run

please reach out to us.

Yeah a couple
of hacks, life hacks, if you will. You can goe
to Costco at 8:00 in the morning and
get a ticket so that you can get the
disinfecting wipes.  they do get them
there you just have to be there
like an hour early and then go through.
if you’re out of disinfecting wipes
try getting to Costco super early. also a
lot of local distilleries have turned
their production into hand sanitizer so
if you’re looking for a small batch
custom hand sanitizer you can check that

that is a good point we use that our office and replenish it

a couple times a week. there is not a shortage of disefectant

it is just knowing where to get it.

I don’t know about you Joe
but I’m pretty much keeping the local
takeout business afloat.
I know a lot of people have been like oh
we’re at home we’re cooking more. we’ve
been taking out a lot more.

that’s funny
I actually have a couple of
restaurants I want to try to support but
I’ve actually taken the time to try to
eat healthy and take a little
better care of myself.

I know one of the things
that I’ve been doing I’ve noticed a lot
more foot traffic out there is just
going for walks and jogs and getting
that fresh air and that sunshine and man
that really helps get the stir crazy out.

yeah it’s funny
you mentioned that during this unique time
I’ve noticed some parks I haven’t
normally noticed and I just found this
one if you’re in shoreline, Hamlin Park.
it is full of trails and you know it
seems empty there’s so much space and it’s
right in the heart of the shoreline.
there’s lots of hiking there there’s

some steep terrain, some mellow paths, lots of open space.

it really is a beautiful place to spend some time.

yeah it’s a cool park. we like to go
down here, we’re right by
Hains Wharf Park and the Meadowdale
Beach Park. I know the Meadowdale
Beach Trail is officially closed
but that does not stop the hikers I’m
telling you. we take the back
entrance down the roads and
get that beautiful sunset view.

if your a
local business that need support let us
know we have a huge audience and will tell
them to frequent your restaurant of
whatever your business is if your a
neighbor in need let us know we want
to be a help.

you know another good way to
pass time right now and also build some
equity in your home is you can still hit
up Home Depot and Lowe’s as long as you
keep your six foot distance and
wear your gloves and such.  you
can do some of that deferred maintenance
you’ve been putting off for a while.

it is
a great time but you gotta take your
bag of patients with you when you go
there because you have to wait in line to get into the store.

true I went the other day and the line
was pretty long outside the building but
we got in pretty quick and it
wasn’t as bad as it looked.

with that being said let’s give a big
shout-out to the frontline workers.
with them working over a time right now and
dealing with people that are overly
emotional their jobs can’t be easy
in the first place but you add this on
to it.

yeah our heart goes out to them and
thank you to everybody that’s
out there and keeping things going.
anything we can do to help please
let us know.
