Safety Top of Mind

There are many common sense practices that can go a long way, particularly when meeting a new client for the first time. For example:

  • Make sure your brokerage has a safety plan in place and all agents are educated about its contents
  • When meeting a new client for the first time, meet at the office or in a pubic setting
  • Ask for ID and/or ask the client to complete an information sheet with basic identification information such as name, address, license number
  • Introduce new clients to someone else in the office
  • Drive to showings in separate cars
  • Tell someone the address of where you will be and when you should be expected back

These measures and many others are outlined by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The resources include specific tips for open house safety and suggested conversations to have with clients. Click here to access.

Tip #2 Checking-in
When you have a new client, ask him/her to stop by your office and complete a Prospect Identification Form (Find a copy online atwww.REALTOR.org/Safety). Also, photocopy their driver’s license and retain this information at your office. Be certain to properly discard this personal information when you no longer need it.
