Realtor Safety Reminders

September is Realtor® safety month. KWRC wants to remind all Realtors® to put safety first by sharing this National Association of Realtors® video. Please take the time to watch it and always stay safe.

You Are The Key To Your Safety 

  1. Be aware of surroundings. Proactively learn as much as possible on the people and possible animals associated with each property showing. Continually conduct risk assessments.
  2. Put phone down when driving. Agents spend a lot of time communicating. However, talking and texting on the phone while driving is dangerous.
  3. Have a buddy. When you host open houses or meet clients for showings, have an assistant or another person with you, if possible.
  4. Always let someone know where you are. For showings, tell someone the client’s name and contact information, showing address and estimated time on site. Have a response plan that escalates in force should you not return within a given amount of time. Remember that KWRC participates in the Open Door Partners program as well.
  5. Have clients fill out information forms. NAR has free downloadable resources, including a prospect information form, which you can customize and use. The form collects important identifying information that should be kept on file at your office.

HLN has also published 7 Safety Tips for Realtors that we encourage Realtors® to review.
