September is REALTOR® Safety Month

Sep 19, 2019

September is REALTOR® Safety Month, a month designated to helping members understand the risks they face through knowledge, awareness and empowerment.

Please be reminded that when attending a listing presentation or showing a house you believe to be vacant, DO NOT GO ALONE! 

If you have to show it alone, use safety apps, such as Real Safe Agent, or safety solutions to let trusted contacts know where you are and how long you plan to be gone.  Have an emergency number, such as 9-1-1, on speed dial.

Real Safe Agent is a free member benefit for all LIBOR members. Real Safe Agent is NOT a personal safety app, it’s a crime prevention system for the real estate industry.  Based in behavioral science, the system empowers our community to cooperate and collaborate for the purposes of keeping each other safe.  This cooperation and collaboration prevents the precursor behaviors of a predator from escalating to a crime, and denies the criminal the environment needed to commit a crime.   For more information on this safety app, visit: Real Safe Agent.

LIBOR encourages all REALTORS® to verify information received from potential buyers or sellers, obtain proper identification, and follow your company’s protocol for REALTOR® safety.

Follow your instincts if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable in any situation.   

LIBOR is committed to the safety of its members, visit www.LIRealtor.com/Safety for comprehensive safety information and tips.
