There have been so many scary articles recently about "fake" customers assaulting real estate agents. It made me think how scary this must be. Most of them were women and in society today unfortunately we need to take precautions that this never happens to you. We always think "this can never happen to me". However it can and we should have a code word. A code word at the office with your friend someone that if you call them you say this word to let them know you are in distress. I remember as a kid we used to have a buddy system where we always had that "buddy" to go to the bathroom or take a walk to the other end of the school. It is important to take these things seriously.
We continually take precautions and have security for:
- our home
- our computer
- our car
- our bank accounts
- our credit cards
- our children
and many more. Why do we not do this for ourselves. Just because you are a man do not think this can't happen to you. I remember a man a year ago was assaulted. So when taking on that new client make sure you ask questions and make sure you meet them at the office or a coffee. Doing this will help prevent these assaults, and if everyone does this we would stop reading about these horrific scary assaults.
