Safety starts with you as a real estate professional. Develop a team that you can count on to promote safety measures. This could be a friend, family member or another real estate professional.
When meeting buyers for the first time, there should be some extra precautions for the agent. Never meet at a property and always try to meet at the office. Insist on documentation from the buyers and take a copy of what is provided. This can consist of a driver's license or other forms of state ID, passport, make, model, year of their vehicle, license plate number, pre-qualification or pre-approval from a lender etc. When driving to a property always take your own car and never ride with a buyer you've just met. If they insist on driving, take 2 cars. Always have someone from your office know where you are when showing or holding an open house.
The main focus of this course is to trust your instincts. This course provides safety tips and check list to help you implement a safety program. Examples are presented to aid in understanding. Upon completion of this course, the real estate professional will have the tools needed to practice good safety awareness.
