Guys, we’ve all gotten that one creepy phone call from a potential client that “just doesn’t feel right…” You need to go with your gut and protect yourself. Here are just a few tips on realtor safety…
Always let someone know what homes you’re going to show. Get the client to meet you at your office, and get a copy of photo id and driver’s license. Get their make and model of car and license plates. Then, get to your showing early. Scope out all of the doors and exits in case you need to make a quick getaway. Keep your cell phone dialed to 911, so that all you’d need to do is hit the send button for help. Look into the new GPS tracking jewelry. Just remember, taking these steps might just save your life!
