Susan & Mindy Team...Honesty. Integrity. Results.

I mostly list, but occasionally, am called to show one of my listings to someone who has not yet hired an agent. I'm happy to oblige, although I'm in a rural area where meeting at the office totally makes no sense logistically, and well, Starbucks is in the next town.  I guess we *could* stand in the parking lot at the nearby Citgo gas station and say hello first, but that just seems, well, weird.  

So, what's a girl to do?  I just take my husband along and apologize, saying we have an another engagement after the showing.  He slips my S&W Bodyguard 380 revolver in his pocket, as he takes his bodyguard duties seriously.

My hubby is always concerned with my safety and, because of some issues that people were having in parking decks in some of our commercial buildings, recently purchased a Guard Llama for me.

I will write a blog about it!

Being married to a law enforcement officer for the past 15 years I was ahead of that game.  I've had policy in place and have checks and balances systems in place for checking on agents in the field regularly.

I have been following safety procedures for almost 25 years... it's nothing new to me. It's second nature to me after all these years. And I've never had anything untoward happen in all these years. At the end of the day, much of safety procedures is nothing more than common sense.

It is a very good time for all to review their personal safety procedures.

Meeting prospects at your office is a very good policy.

Our market is moving so fast here, very hard to plan to meet before showing them a home. However, I always make sure that they are approved with a lender, and I have the letter. Just good business, and makes me feel a bit safer I guess. :)

That is a great policy Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 it's one of mine too.

No new ones for me lately, just time honored procedures I've had most of my life; including but not limited to common sense, the ability to fight and my working by referral business model, which minimizes and almost eliminates the freaks of the industry. There were three policemen in my family, so I was raised with and immersed street smarts.

Nothing new. My agents are savvy, we only work with people we know, and we're in a state that permits concealed/open carry without a permit so the number of predators is much lower.
