UPDATE: Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in DFW, we are closing the TREC office until Monday, July 6. All staff that had returned to the office will work from home. We will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate our plans.
After working from home for the last three months, The Real Estate Council is beginning its return to the office today.
Beginning Monday, June 15, director-level staff and above will work from our offices at 3100 McKinnon Street in Uptown, while remaining staff will continue to work from home through the 4th of July holiday.
The following are details about our COVID-19 response plan that we think our members should know:
- To ensure the safety of our members and guests, The TREC office will remain closed to visitors and all meetings and events will continue to take place virtually until further notice. Login credentials will be emailed to participants prior to all virtual events and meetings.
- Employees returning to the office will follow social distancing guidelines, remaining six feet apart at all times and working primarily at their workstations. Staff will wear protective masks while away from their workstations.
- Beginning Monday, July 6, half of our remaining staff will return to the office on a rotating schedule based on workstation location, while the other half will continue to work from home. These two groups will rotate each week throughout July. Our goal is to return all staff to the office in early August.
- The entire TREC office (Suite 1150) recently underwent a deep cleaning. We also have ample supply of cleaning materials and hand sanitizer, and staff working in the office will remain vigilant about regularly cleaning all surfaces.
- Our business hours will remain 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. until July 6, when we will resume normal hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Monday-Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.
- If one of our staff members contracts COVID-19 upon returning to the office, we will close the office and return to working at home.
