Georgia Hotels Prepare to Offer Guest Their Famous Southern Hospitality

Savannah, Georgia

Peidmont Park, Atlanta Georgia

Businesses all over the state of Georgia are reopening, and Georgia's hotels are doing what they can to welcome their guest with unwavering hospitality.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, May 26, 2020 / — Businesses all over the state of Georgia are beginning to reopen, park goers are enjoying the sunshine in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, and the beaches of Tybee Island Georgia are slowly reopening for swimmers and sun bathing.

The doors of businesses along Savannah’s famed Broughton Street are swung open wide, welcoming tourist whom returned to historic Savannah. Since Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s shelter-in-place order expired last week, hotels all over Georgia have begun reopening to guests, all of them doing their very best to balance the need for social distancing and still being able to service the needs of guests.

The last month has been what businesses call a roller coaster as they try to manage business and keep employees. "We are taking each day one at a time, slow and steady. We want to make sure our guest are receiving that special brand of southern hospitality that we are so known for here in georgia, but we want to make sure we are doing it safely for all” said Hotelier, Charlton Claxton. “I believe that every hotel operator that we know are extremely busy getting everything back in order.” With the state slowly beginning to reopen, hotels are preparing for the extra volume of people traveling. Claxton says “Our housekeepers are required to wear gloves and viral masks at all times while prepping properties.”

Georgia became one of the first states to lift its restrictions designed to limit the pandemic’s spread when Republican Gov. Brian Kemp let businesses including salons, gyms and bowling alleys open their doors on April 24. The state allowed restaurants to resume dine-in service on April 27 with restrictions. Kemp will keep bars, music venues and nightclubs closed at least through the end of the month. Georgia, like many states, faces immense pressure to restart its economy as the toll from business shutdowns mounts. Among those eligible for unemployment insurance in Georgia, about 17% have filed claims since the outbreak swept through the state in mid-March.

Georgia hotels are doing what they can to balance commerce and the safety of their guests and employees.

What will shared workspaces be doing to keep you safe after lockdown?

How flexible workspace venues are planning to adapt to life after lockdown

Will shared workspaces be safe to use after Lockdown?

LONDON, UK, May 26, 2020 / — As the UK Government announced further measures yesterday, to relax the current lockdown restrictions, and with many businesses beginning to reopen and more ‘relaxing’ measures to come in the coming weeks, will shared workspaces be safe to use after Lockdown?

What is the flexible space industry doing to ensure the compliance with hygiene and contamination control for the many shared space users?

There is no doubt that the way we all work has changed greatly, and probably forever, as the spread of Covid-19 exposed how vulnerable we potentially were, just by going about our daily business and socialising.

Lockdown has caused many to rethink how they want to work post-lockdown, particularly when it comes to commuting and what kind of working environment they wish to work from.

With Furloughing, self-isolation, and employees and business owners adapting to the new reality of home working, many have realised there are many benefits to cutting the long daily commute and that for many, it’s been a positive experience on some levels.

Both employers and employees alike have seen that with modern technologies, such as Zoom, Skype and Microsoft Teams, it is indeed possible for businesses to function just as well for most, on the new remote model.

So with a growing drive to work at, or closer to home, the use of shared workspaces should be a good idea, allowing the flexibility of working closer to home, yet in professional surroundings and with business facilities; without all the distractions of the home based office that many will have become newly familiar with!

But there are still fears amongst many workers, about using these shared facilities, and a need for reassurance that they are not putting themselves, or their wider families at risk by using them.

The industry has responded quickly to these concerns, with many flexible space operators undertaking full and comprehensive reviews of how they will run their facilities post-lockdown, to give confidence to users that they are indeed safe places to use for conducting their business.

These measures include maintaining social distancing in their premises, so that facility users are able to function within a safe proximity to other space users, this to be within the Government guidelines for what that safe social distance should be, currently set at 2 metres apart, yet with recent research suggesting that 1 metre may indeed be a safe proximity according to the WHO.

Numbers of users of facilities at any given time, is also another important measure operators of flexible spaces are considering, calculating the peak tolerances that need to be observed, so that facilities can maintain social distancing easily and not get too overcrowded to maintain this.

For many new or existing users of shared spaces, one of the main concerns is the common areas of the buildings, these may be lifts, kitchens, breakout areas, restrooms…etc. and how these are going to be kept safe when other people are using them?

Much has been discussed about surface contamination in recent weeks, with the American CDC, stating that transmission through surfaces is less of a threat, as Covid-19 is primarily spread from person to person via respiratory droplets.

That aside, space operators are not taking any chances, and are putting in place robust plans for hygiene and infection control including regular regimens of cleaning and disinfecting, making hand sanitisers available in common areas and fully cleaning each work area between each client visiting.

These are the same challenges that any food/ drink retail outlet will face in the coming weeks as they reopen to some form of normality, yet it is likely that food outlets such as cafés, bars and restaurants will face a much greater challenge due to the harder to control numbers and much greater use of common areas and facilities.

Shared space operators may have an edge here, in that they have much greater control of their internal environments and user access control, to enable a greater degree of hygiene and viral agent protection.

As well as the many unseen ways that operators will be assisting users to maintain scrupulously clean facilities, they also plan to have overt reminders in place at key areas within their buildings, signs, stickers, floor mats etc.. to remind users of the basic requirements of hygiene and physical distancing, to ensure that the strategies for limiting any potential contamination are, as much as possible, adhered to over the coming months when perhaps people begin to have a less ‘alert’ attitude to the threat.

FlexSA, the Flexible Space Association, the leading UK body for representing shared spaces, will be spearheading the move towards a safe and successful future across the industry, the newly published Code of Conduct sets the highest standards for the flexible workspace industry and states that members will ‘Comply with all necessary legislative and regulatory requirements which are applicable to their business’.

This in practice, for users means that the whole membership is committed to working with Government, Scientists and medical advisers to ensure that the future for shared workspaces is secured by ensuring the client-base feel safe and secure whilst using any flexible spaces.

Back to the current situation, of millions of small business owners and employees looking for a future of more convenient working on their own terms; it’s very likely that the future will look like a more blended approach, some time is spent at home, some in shared workspaces and with less time spent in large head office buildings.

It looks like a very bright and safe future for both users and operators alike if the measures a fully rolled out and universally adopted.

Virtual Staging Example

Virtual Staging Example

RealEZPhotoFix by VirtualTourCafe

RealEZPhotoFix by VirtualTourCafe

Real estate agent and broker members can now order professional virtual staging through RealEZPhotoFix, a USA company with special member pricing.

We are all excited to be working closely with VirtualTourCafe and RealEZPhotoFix to offer this automated solution to our members.”

— Tricia Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, Bay East Association of REALTORS

PLEASANTON, CA, USA, May 26, 2020 / — RealEZPhotoFix by VirtualTourCafe, a USA company and nationally recognized leader in real estate virtual staging and virtual tours announced today in cooperation with the Bay East Association of REALTORS® and Contra Costa Association of REALTORS® that real estate agent and broker members can now order professional virtual staging and photo enhancement services through RealEZPhotoFix, a division of VirtualTourCafe, LLC with special member pricing.

Under the agreement, members of both associations can order virtual staging, photo enhancement, object removal, and floor plans through the easy to use RealEZPhotoFix website with a special member-only discount to take advantage of the automated real estate virtual marketing tools designed to help agents market and sell listings in an ever-changing virtual environment.

“Our members want modern, professional and easy-to-use tools to market their properties, and with the changing environment and need for virtual showings, RealEZPhotoFix by VirtualTourCafe is able to provide solutions to meet our members need. We are all excited to be working closely with VirtualTourCafe and RealEZPhotoFix to offer this automated solution to our members.” – Tricia Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, Bay East Association of REALTORS

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Bay East Association of Realtors and Contra Costa Association of Realtors as they represent a high standard of excellence and brand recognition in the real estate community,” said Tim Denbo, president/CEO RealEZPhotoFix.

The RealEZPhotoFix online real estate virtual staging and photo enhancement service also offers real estate agents the ability to convert their photos from good to great in less than 24 hours by using highly skilled photo editors. The editors apply a proprietary, 15-step process designed to make the agent look like a professional photographer; and help the real estate agent and homeowner sell fast, and many times for a higher price!

“With the Covid-19 and homeowners concerned about their safety and the safety of their loved ones, real estate agents have a lot of challenges with getting a property ready for the market. There are situations when the photos need to get done even though no professional photographer is available, or the homeowners don’t want people coming through their home. This is just one more reason we developed RealEZPhotoFix” said Tim Denbo President/CEO RealEZPhotoFix and bestselling author of “The 7 Secrets of Real Estate Photography to Sell Homes Fast.”.

Virtual staging is coming of age due to new 3D technology enhancements allowing skilled designers and editors to create realistic photos with incredible details that make it hard to tell the difference between a physically staged home and a virtually staged home. In addition, in the current market buyers are becoming more accepting of technology tools and virtual tools, and are not surprised, as long as the real estate agent or homeowner discloses the facts. A good practice is to show both photos, the before and after with disclaimer that the after photo has been virtually staged.

“Modern technology and ease-of-use are important features in any tool or service we offer our members. VirtualTourCafe and RealEZPhotoFix offers a suite of quality products and services that we are proud to offer our members and believe it will not only save them time and money, but help them sell listings faster!” – Sheiren Diaz, Chief Executive Officer, Contra Costa Association of REALTORS

The real estate industry has been evolving over the years. Virtual staging has become more widely used and accepted. RealEZPhotoFix by VirtualTourCafe has responded by offering a product that meets the needs of today’s real estate professional.

RealEZPhotoFix is a division of VirtualTourCafe headquartered in Pleasanton California with clients coast to coast and in three countries. The business offers real estate associations and brokerage discount options, site-licensing as well as individual agents Do-It-Yourself subscription service and full-service professional photography in a growing number of select markets.

Optimism Permeates Future in Multifamily Investing as Leaders in the Transaction Space Discuss These Changing Times

CARROLL recently held a virtual town hall with leaders in multifamily to discuss how firms can lead through these changing times.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 26, 2020 / — CARROLL, one of multifamily’s top owners and operators, recently held a virtual town hall with leaders in the industry to discuss how real estate investment firms can lead through these changing times. Despite the slow down in transaction flow over the last 2 months, leaders are optimistic about the future even if it might look different than it did in 2019.

Joining CARROLL founder and CEO, Patrick Carroll, was Kris Mikkelsen, COO and managing director at Walker & Dunlap, Robert LaChapelle, vice chairman of debt and structured finance at CBRE, and Blake Okland, vice chairman and head of multifamily investment sales at Newmark Knight Frank.

Despite the current conditions, each leader is optimistic about the path forward in multifamily.

“We’re seeing equity trying to see where’s the mark. On the debt front it is becoming increasingly predictable…The agencies are serving the role that they were created to do…They’re coming back. They are being price competitive.” – Robert LaChapelle

“There was a saying in the last downturn, “don’t bet against the Fed.” I’m not going to bet against the Fed because they are piling money into the economy. That’s going to show up in positive ways. It has to.” – Patrick Carroll

“We’re starting to see the ice thaw…We’re seeing capital willing to get active again.” – Kris Mikkelsen

The turn came quick and caught everyone off guard, but firms quickly adapted and were bolstered by years of positive results.

“The downturn came on so fast…and how do you communicate as a leader that everything is going to be fine? You have go out there and show by example.” – Patrick Carroll

“It hit us like a freight train. We went into triage mode and had to get creative on how to structure transactions to keep them together.” – Kris Mikkelsen

So, what is the path forward? Each of the leaders see significant upside coming but this will likely serve as a reset for the industry.

“I think you’re going to see smaller markets benefit from this.” – Patrick Carroll

“There’s going to be far more support for quality of life decision making across all organizations…There’s the notion of suburban office becoming attractive again for continuity reasons.” – Blake Okland

Although these places are a great vacation getaway for large groups and families, these facilities will now become reimagined,” says Thibault Masson team leader for Rental Scale-Up.
Attendees can expect speakers such as Quirin Schwaighofer (CEO, MadeComfy), Jon Stonham (CEO, Elite Havens), David Whelan (CEO, Urban Rest Apartments), Daniel Rouquette (Managing Director, Villa Finder) to attend the individual interviews. “In these strange times, we need to start thinking of the future. How can we ensure these places remain profitable, welcoming and luxurious, but at the same time preserve the health of staff members,” tells Masson. As many popular vacation destinations such as Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand face uncertainty, the conference aims to answer current industry issues.

“Many online booking platforms such as Airbnb and Vrbo have been dominating the industry for years. As places will now need to comply with new health regulations imposed by national governments, there will be an alteration in the way travellers use short-term rental platforms,” he says. These short-term rentals will adapt their code of practice to oblige with better hygiene and cleanliness protocols. Although the conference aims to answer challenging questions, many are already wondering what role hotel, villa, and resort personnel will play in the months.

Rental Scale-Up is also no newcomer to the industry and has been around since 2014. Their industry expertise includes market data, consulting, and online education. The team has seen some prolific achievements over the last 6 years. They’ve been featured at both online and offline conferences to assist with VRMA US and VRMA Europe (Vacation Rental Managers Association). They’ve also recently contributed to the VR World Summit and VRMintel, sharing their knowledge on pressing industry matters.

“We’re very excited to be part of something so revolutionary. We never thought that something so novel will ever take place in our lifetime,” Masson shares. He goes on to tell, “Conference visitors should use this initiative as a way to expand their perspective and viewpoints. The great insights from experts such as Marc Ribail, Director at Rentivo and Anurag Verma, the Co-Founder of PriceLabs can now be enjoyed within the confines of your home.” The company has ranked in specialists to give clarity to those with unrelenting thoughts and questions.

Local tourism in many countries has come to an abrupt standstill, with numerous countries keeping international travel to the minimum. It’s not yet sure what the future of international travel will look like, with longer airport check-ins, stricter visa regulations, and smaller passengers on flights. The severity of the pandemic has already been felt in every corner of the world, with infection rates still looking very grim.

Yet, domestic bookings are picking, especially in Australia and New Zealand. For luxury villa rentals in Bali, Thailand, and Sri Lanka, much will depend on regional flights reopening, as well as on the appetite of younger, more adventurous travelers to stay at a villa in their own bubble of friends and family. One thing is for sure, that adjustment to better hygiene and cleanliness in short-term rental spaces will now be better than ever before.

The conference will take place on 27 and 28 May 2020, and interested parties can access the sign-up page at
