Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - DTC

REALTOR Safety Needs to be Taken Seriously as Events in Ohio Show. had this article today about two real estate agents murdered in Ohio. When we enter a house, we never know what awaits on the other side of that door. Sometimes we take it for granted and let our guard down. Safety is not only for women, as you can see if you read the article.

We owe it to ourselves and our clients to maintain an awareness about safety.

This video from makes some good points and has some good tips and reminders. Be safe.

A great video, with some good common sense tips. We get lackadaisical, so it's easy to forget.

@Scott - we do take it for granted. Even a simple precaution like locking the front door after you arrive at a home your showing may keep you safe.

Great tips, Mike.  I think it's very important to get out of the habit of jumping into your car and meeting total strangers at homes - especially vacant, foreclosed properties. I like to have buyers come into the office first. Or at least fax or email me their pre-approval letter so I can talk to their lender.  If they won't do at least one of those things, I won't work with them and I certainly won't meet them at a vacant house.
