Your Safety is Non-Negotiable
September is REALTOR® Safety Month, so if there’s ever a time we ask for you to give safety your full attention, it’s now.
In loving memory of Beverly Carter, a REALTOR® who was kidnapped and murdered while showing one of her listings, please take a moment to watch the video below from her son, who has made it his mission to spread awareness on REALTOR® safety.
It’s easy to think these tragedies will never happen to you, but that thinking drops your guard, making you an easier target. Your safety must be your highest priority at all times.
So what can you do to protect yourself in this high-risk occupation?
These 56 safety tips could save your life, so give them a thorough review! Some are a good reminder of common sense while others may surprise you a bit. These often very simple preventative precautions will be your most reliable means to keep yourself out of dangerous situations.
We are also hosting a REALTOR® Safety Workshop on September 17th at DMAR HQ (worth 2 CE credits). This goes beyond your simple dos and don’ts. This is an interactive, upbeat and fascinating workshop which is also vitally important to REALTOR® safety.
