Regardless of who you are, never ignore your instincts or gut feeling but also take precautions like only meeting customers (especially first timers) in the office, leaving a copy of their ID and a showing list at the office, and have a procedure in place for calling help or backup when things get  rough. Always think safety first.

Yes, I trust mine. I was in an elevator with a few people, someone introduced me to a man and could not shake his hand. A short while later, he got caught telling lies about his travels and job history. He was fired for emulating other people's lives through the stories they told him. He was a fake and a huge fraud! BTW, I do carry a weapon of choice as well!

I do trust my gut but it is also connected to written core values and decision making norms. Too often we trust out gut only after the event not before.

There are men at large that have mental sex with just about anything that moves so this is not a new concept. But being forewarned is always new to the hearer of said subject. When I was doing Rape Counseling for a small City in California, I was taken back at how young girls & women actually new very little as in very low awareness & in these cases after the fact learning

There's a great book I read a long time called The Gift of Fear.  It is all about trusting your gut.

You are always going to be suspicious for a reason.  The person may not mean you harm, but they are likely lying to you about something if your gut is screaming at you.   I remember once not wanting to meet a strange couple at a house.  Had them meet me in the office.  Found out the man had been lying about his reasons to want to see the home.  When I made a copy of his license I saw that he next door and was posing as a buyer to get a peek since we weren't doing open houses.

We had a similar creep here a couple of years ago Jeff Pearl and it was surprising how long it took for any action to be taken after he was reported by a couple of female agents to the police.

BTW, North Dakota was the 1st State to make Real Estate agent safety a required course.

Always, although not female, times are scary enough for us men. Not too long ago a tenant tried to rob me, it did not end well for him. But i use caution when showing homes and meeting clients as anyone should.

I do most of the time. Most importantly, when it comes to my personal safety I do not take any chances.  I have a laundry list of things I just won't do - like meeting strangers at properties. I have a laundry list of things (check list) that must be done before working with anyone.

There are few things more reliable and accurate than a women's intuition.

This is part of the marvelously made construct that ensures survival.

However, so much social pressure compels resisting intuition that walking into danger becomes unfortunate.

Trust your intuition!

Intuition does NOT need to be justified. It is your "danger ahead" signal that only the foolish ignore. And this applies to ALL dimensions of life.
