September is National REALTOR® Safety Month
REALTORS® face job-related risks every day—working alone, meeting with strangers in unfamiliar places, and sharing personal contact information. While independence is one of the perks of our industry, it can leave brokers open to vulnerabilities.
In an ongoing effort to keep safety top-of-mind for members, NAR dedicates September as REALTOR® Safety Month. Their aim: Help REALTORS® make it home safely to their family every night.
Through the REALTOR® Safety Program, launched more than a decade ago, NAR makes a variety of resources available to you, including videos, webinars, and marketing materials. They add new resources every year. For example, this year, they launched the REALTOR® Safety Network to deploy safety alerts via social media when a physical or cyber threat to REALTORS® warrants national attention. Visit NAR.realtor/safety to learn more and access all of NAR’s REALTOR® Safety resources.
