September is REALTOR® Safety Month, and there's no better time to reassess your safety protocols and make safety a top-of-mind priority.
The reality in real estate is that there are some real threats when working in the field, and it's crucial to be prepared. The 2022 REALTOR® Safety Survey highlights alarming statistics of the potential dangers REALTORS® face while on the job:
45,000 REALTORS® were victims of a crime while performing their duties.
300,000 REALTORS® felt fear for their safety while on the job.
400,000 REALTORS® don’t have safety protocols in place to protect themselves.
