If you don't have a personal safety policy for youself, you can do some research on the NAR site, take a Realtor® Safety class, or ask your Broker for a potential safety list. After taking a continuing ed course on this topic, here's the list I have so far: 

Realtor® Safety Checklist

• Meet clients at the office

• Make it a policy to get a copy of all clients' drivers licenses for your file

• Have a client intake process, including a copy of their driver's license(s), information (name, contact info, hobbies, pets... you can use this for your CRM, too), verification of cash and/or preapproval 

• Tell someone where you're going - have a safety buddy to call

• Don't go at night if you don't know who's going with you

• Don't go alone if you don't feel comfortable in a certain area

• Drive in separate cars

• Go early and scout out unfamiliar property, especially in remote areas

• Meet the neighbors (good for safety and for new relationships)

• As you take the tour, be aware of available safety objects and hazards

• Let your customers go first (don't get trapped with a client between you and the exit)

• Keep your distance

• Use technology (there are apps like TrustStamp and Guard Llama that help with safety, and there are apps with safety timers that alert someone if you haven't checked in with them in a certain period of time)


Set your business model for safety and stick to it with ALL clients!

Good morning Monica. This should be a handout at real estate school and in every office.
