I saw a post this morning about REALTOR safety and after reading I was a little concerned, too many agents have forgotten about how dangerous your job actually is. Please, please be careful and always be on your toes.
Always call someone and let them know when you are going to show a house especially to a single person whether it's a guy or a girl.
Don't be afraid to call the local police dept. and see if they can get a squad car in the neighborhood.
Always take someone for an evening appt.
My earlier post talks about using your affiliates not "using"your affiliates this is a time where that rule goes out the window, call your local affiliate and ask if they will be in the neighborhood and have them park somewhere close to the house in case you need them. I have done it for several of my agents.
Note for the affiliates: Dropping by an open house on Sundays is good not only to give your agent a refreshment and snack but to make sure they are ok. Treat them like family after all if it isn't for YOUR agent you don't have a job. Keep that in mind.
Fold be careful out there think outside the box and remember if you don't have good feeling about someone chances are you are right.
Make it a great day!!
