I live in Texas and have been practicing real estate for over seven years. I have admittedly put myself in some really stupid situations. Trying to learn from my mistakes, I try to check all bases to consider safety first. I let everyone know where I am at all times. I try to not work open houses alone. I do not take buyers out without doing a DNA test first (well maybe that is not exactly true).
Point is- I am paranoid and rightly so. In this day in age we have to be careful not to jump and run without taking precautions. I would like to hear what other realtors are doing to stay safe. Maybe by posting you could help me and others stay a little safer.
Survivor stories would be nice to hear as well. Perhaps you will write a post? All links to previous posts are welcome!
