This is a wake up call to all Realtors®.
You need to be cautious and aware of who you are meeting...especially alone.
I am not telling you to be afraid or scare you.
Being aware is a must.
My comment back to Debbie was the following:
'So happy to be reading this as YOUR blog and not headlines elsewhere. Trust that gut feeling...it is powerful and it works.'
Recently had a potential buyer ask me to meet him at a night at one of my properties that was vacant and on a wooded lot.
For me it was a no brainer to decline this appointment. He proceeded to ask if I was afraid of the dark. I answered not at all but I am afraid of you!
There is no need to make an appointment with someone you don't know and put your self in danger.
I did meet this person the next day while showing the property to someone else.
Had no problem mentioning that I do not show vacant homes after dark to strangers...no matter how qualified they appear.
Don't ever stop listening to your gut feeling.
