Realtor Safety Tips

When it comes to

When it comes to real estate, safety should always be a top priority for both realtors and clients. Here are some essential safety tips for realtors:

  1. Pre-screen potential clients: Before meeting with a client, gather as much information as possible, including their full name, contact details, and any relevant identification. Consider using an online system for initial screening to ensure their legitimacy.
  2. Inform colleagues or family members: Always let someone know about your appointments, including the time, location, and details of the client you’ll be meeting. Share this information with a trusted colleague, friend, or family member.
  3. Meet in a public place first: For initial meetings, arrange to meet clients in a public setting such as your office or a coffee shop. This helps establish a professional connection while ensuring safety.
  4. Trust your instincts: If something feels off or makes you uncomfortable, trust your intuition. If a situation or client raises red flags, it’s okay to decline or end the meeting.
  5. Have an exit strategy: Plan an exit strategy in case you feel unsafe during a showing or meeting. Establish a code word or phrase with a colleague or friend that signals you need assistance or an emergency exit.
  6. Maintain personal space: Be mindful of personal space boundaries during meetings or property showings. Keep a comfortable distance from clients, and be cautious if they invade your personal space.
  7. Avoid sharing personal information: Protect your personal information, such as your home address or personal phone number. Use a dedicated business phone number and consider using secure communication apps for client interactions.
  8. Keep your phone charged: Ensure your mobile phone is fully charged before meeting clients. This allows you to stay connected and call for help if needed.
  9. Stay aware of your surroundings: Stay vigilant and aware of your surroundings during property showings or open houses. Familiarize yourself with emergency exits and always lock doors behind you.
  10. Take self-defense precautions: Consider taking self-defense classes to equip yourself with basic techniques and strategies. Additionally, carry personal safety devices such as pepper spray or a personal alarm.
