REALTORS offer timely tips to "work smart, stay safe"
September is officially observed as REALTOR® Safety Month, but the National Association of REALTORS® reminds its members to take extra safety precautions when previewing, showing and attending open houses. "Stay aware, be empowered 24 / 7 / 365" is the overarching advice.
Even though only 20 percent of members have participated in a Realtor safety course, the vast majority (71 percent) say they feel more prepared for unknown situations after taking the course.
As part of its work smart/stay safe campaign, NAR has compiled 56 Safety Tips and a Safety Resource Kit focused in knowledge, awareness and empowerment for reference and downloading.
