In honor of REALTOR® Safety Month, check out these tips and tricks for staying safe while dealing with unpredictable situations.
- Show properties before dark
If you must show a property after dark, keep all of the lights on and the blinds open. Let a coworker know your schedule.
- Have new clients check in
Ask new clients to stop by your office and complete an identification form and copy their driver's license to be held in your office.
- Check open houses thoroughly
At the end of an open house check every room of the home to make sure no one has stayed behind.
- Check in with the office
Let another employee know where you are headed, who you are meeting, and when you expect to return to the office.
- Learn self-defense tactics
This one is a given. Learning self-defense will increase your ability to defend yourself at work and at home. Certified Training Institute offers a 4-hour Online Self Defense Class designed with real estate professionals in mind.
