A major concern for real estate professionals is their personal safety and the safety of their clients. Many times the agent is working alone while showing a property, holding an open house, or manning a model home in a new subdivision. This situation can make an agent particularly vulnerable with respect to danger and safety issues. Busy agents sometimes forget to take some basic steps to reduce their risk of being prey to criminals.

This course will provide real estate professionals with a solid knowledge base on how to help protect themselves, their clients and the general public from being victims of crime. The course begins with general safety tips that real estate professionals can use in their daily practice. Also discussed are specific steps that can be taken to reduce the risks for safety issues when working with buyers and when working with sellers. The course concludes with using technology as a safety measure. Other valuable resources are also provided.
