Hi guys, I was just watching a show on court TV about a very sad and unfortunate event in which an agent was attacked and killed while holding an open house.
This really bothered me. An open house, to us Realtors; is the most normal thing in the world. The routine of an open house just gets so hum-drum that I think (at least I am guilty of this) sometimes we forget our safety plans. I used to bring pepper spray and a stun gun with me but I now mostly forget them in my car. I usually lock the door, but that is kind of useless unless I really plan on not opening it for a person based on their looks. The looks would not always tell the tale since most of the real crazies look more normal than I do.
Anyway, I thought this was a good subject to discuss b/c it is a major concern that we have all have.
I was wondering what, if any, safety plans you all have in place for meeting new potential clients or holding an open house. Any scary experiences you have had that you may have learned a good lesson from ORmaybe just advice or pointers you may personally want to share with the rest of us.
I, for one know that I DO NOTtake as much pre-caution as I should, I'm sure I'm not the only one. I would appreciate (and start implementing ) any new ideas immediately. I think I have taken way to many chances already and it just isn't worth it in the end
