Great idea to share with everyone you know and love!!

Real Estate Agent with Remax Executive Group, Inc., Marsha Booth & Associates

I received this idea from a client and thought it was a great idea worth sharing! 

Put your car keys beside your bed each night when you are getting ready for bed.  Why you ask?  Well, if you hear someone outside your house in the middle of the night, grab your keys and set off the car alarm!  What a great idea!  You have an instant burglar alarm and pay no set up or maintenance fees.  Tell your kids, your parents, your friends and co-workers, you never know when this will save someones life!  It could even work for someone who has a heart attach or falls and can't get to a phone.  Someone would surely become suspicious and call the police if it continued to go off. 
Have any other suggestions for this, leave me a comment!  Would love to hear what ideas you can come up with!

I have heard this many times before and I keep forgetting to do this.  It is a terrific idea.

Hello, Marsha. Considering the explosion of smartphone usage and technology in real estate (listings presentation, document management, communication), I think we can enhance our safety with such tools as well. I am designing a safety service for realtors that works from your exisiting cell phone. It's called "Moby" and connects and directs friends/professional security to your location in your emergency. The beta evaluation program starts in April and I'm looking for participants to try the software and share their experiences. It's free and there are prizes for participation. Go to to see if it's of interest.
