Keeping up with current news, REALTOR safety should be a big concern for all REALTORS. REALTORS should protect themselves by screening their clients before taking them on a showing. Just yesterday, a 69 year old REALTOR was forced upon by a potential client in Florida while showing a home during the day! Check out the article!
MANATEE COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – Tampa Bay realtors are on high alert after a suspect introduced himself as a potential client and tried to force himself on a 69-year-old real estate agent when she was showing him a house in southern Manatee, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
To make sure you're protected, make sure you screen any potential client. Any client should be pre-approved by a lender before any showings take place. The chance of someone like that man giving all their info to a lender and then to assault a REALTOR is unlikely. Stay safe out there!
