How Covid-19 is impacting my small business

Typically this time of year is my busiest time with Real Estate clients wanting to buy and sell, sellers needing to stage, a steady stream of design clients wishing to update their spaces, and keeping my booth at The Mix Marketplace in Downtown Noblesville stocked. For those of you that don't know, I went from having one booth space to three, that's a lot of home decor!

Like many of you, I have been trying to figure out the new normal since the Covid-19 outbreak. I have been diligently working on learning new ways to help my clients in the future, and continue to grow my 10+ year small business. With my son having asthma, my family and I are still being very cautious and continue to stay at home as much as possible. Thankfully with my real estate, interior design, and retail stores, I can handle a lot of the work from home behind the scenes.

I just recently started showing houses again, with more safety precautions, of course! I couldn't sit back and watch the crazy-low interest rates go to waste. Seriously, if you are thinking of buying a house, now is the time. I haven't seen interest rates this low, probably ever!

One of the most significant changes to Sara Smith Real Estate by Design during this Covid-19 stay at home order is I finally launched my online store! This two-year work in progress has been a dream of mine for a very long time. As a designer and shop owner, I am always purchasing furniture and home decor for my clients and customers. I often buy items to sell in my store in Noblesville or store it until it's ready to be used for my next project. Now, I am bringing you an online store to shop for all my favorite furniture, textiles, art, and accessories any time you want! Don't worry; you will still be able to shop at my space at The Mix too, I assure you, I will never run out of home decor!

Covid-19 has affected my small business for sure; however, I am determined to continue helping my clients buy, sell, and design their homes and make it easier than ever to shop designer approved home decor!
