We’re in the home stretch of renovations in Greensboro! We are hopeful to wrap up the renovations by August 15, which will put us two weeks ahead of the initial construction schedule, giving us a month to settle in before Conference.
The second floor is nearly completed with a few finishing touches needed, including finishing the video editing booth and recording studio, storage room, and the fitness center.

The Education and Communication Departments on the first floor are well into the rebuild phase, following an aggressive demo period. The Education Department has been relocated to the opposite side of the building, so part of that team has already settled into their newly painted and carpeted space.

Meanwhile, the reception area just started demo last week, and the receptionist and front door have been temporarily relocated to the newly renovated conference room.

The staff is beyond excited about showing off the new NC REALTORS® offices. Although, many of us who are currently camped out in the new Kutz Center upstairs have grown to like the open, collaborative environment. However, the constant barrage of construction banging and living out of boxes is admittedly a slight inconvenience – one that is well worth it, as we await the final space we’ll call home.
