Realtor Safety Awareness
Meeting strangers and being alone with them is central to working as a real estate agent. While threats and attacks against realtors are rare, they do happen. Realtor personal safety is a major factor in how they conduct business. Safety has become a far greater industry-wide priority since the 2014 murder of Arkansas agent Beverly Carter, who was kidnapped and killed by a couple masquerading as buyers. Agents often carry weapons for self-defense, use safety apps on smartphones, and meet clients only in neutral locations to mitigate dangers, industry experts said.
As a Realtor for over 14 years, I know first hand that selling real estate can be a risky business. Dave Legaz, a former New York Police Department sergeant who is now a broker with Keller Williams. Legaz, who teaches agent safety classes, believes that agents are often reluctant to report crimes out of embarrassment. “Agents don’t want to come forward and say that they were sexually assaulted or brushed up against in a weird, awkward way or something like that,” he said. If you don't have a gun you need a defense weapon to ward off a would-be attackers. Don't be a volunteer victim.
