8 Ways to Beef Up Realtor Safety Knowledge

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mercatus Realty LLC 285089

        Found an interesting article that I wanted to share this with everyone,  has anyone been in a strange situation that they felt uncomfortable with?  The full article can be found here....      The need for safety education is clearly there in the real estate industry, as the National Association of REALTORS®’ inaugural Member Safety Report shows a good portion of members have faced danger in the field.

Forty percent of the million-plus REALTORS® in the country say they’ve experienced a situation that made them fear for their personal safety or the safety of their personal information, most commonly during open houses or while showing vacant or rural properties, according to the report. The most likely practitioners to experience such a threat are females and those working in suburban areas, the report notes.
