Matt Hansen Real Estate Agency has been going above and beyond to support the most vulnerable among our community during the recent hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Team members from Matt Hansen Real Estate have been delivering necessities, including toilet paper and medicine, to their elderly clients who haven't been able to access the supplies themselves.
Mr Hansen said initially, when the panic buying started, helping the elderly by delivering supplies to them was just an idea that he had that took off.
The agency is still open to the public upon booking and has been taking phone calls from their clients who are in need of groceries.
A member of the team will do their best to find the supplies and will then deliver them to the clients home.
Mr Hansen said he decided to do the deliveries as he "felt upset that there were people among the community who were feeling vulnerable, particularly the elderly" due to having limited access to needed supplies.
"Real estate is a vital industry and we are working hard to help our clients," he said.
"Our team members are out and about, running around all day working, so it's not much for us to go a little bit out of our way and get some supplies for our clients that they may not be able to get themselves at the moment."
Mr Hansen said most people who had called the agency's office hadn't asked for anything to be delivered, but had simply thanked him and the real estate team for being there for them and offering the help if needed.

"It's been a rewarding and emotional experience for our team to see the smiles on the few peoples faces that we have been able to help," he said.
Mr Hansen said although they had only helped a handful of people, the appreciation they had received had made it all worthwhile.
One of the deliveries require a team member to deliver medicine to one of their clients and another client was in desperate need of toilet paper.
Mr Hansen said he hoped his actions encouraged other businesses who are fortunate enough to still be functioning to also help in whatever way they can.
"We would love it if we could inspire others in this time of great need to do whatever they can to help too," he said.
