NAR has compiled tips and best practices from subject matter experts, law enforcement, and industry veterans to help keep REALTOR® safe. View the resources on the REALTOR® Safety Tips from NAR webpage.

Examples include:

  • Always meet new clients at the office or in a neutral location, like a coffee shop
  • Share your schedule with a colleague, assistant, or family member
  • Communicate safety concerns on your listing (poor cell phone signal, etc.)
  • Do not overshare about your personal life
  • Do not host open houses alone
  • Check your cell phone battery and signal before heading to an appointment
  • Direct clients to walk in front of you when touring a property, do not lead them
  • Never go into attics, crawl spaces, or garages where you could be trapped

Resources for Personal Protection

As a REALTOR®, it’s important you have a personal safety protocol in place that you use every day with every client, like when meeting new clients, showing properties or sharing information online. There are a variety of tools you can add to your personal safety protocol, such as the smartphone apps and safety products listed here. >>

Take the REALTOR® Safety Pledge

As a REALTOR®, my first priority is the well-being and safety of myself, my REALTOR® colleagues, the clients and customers we serve, and the business partners who foster our profession.

Therefore, I pledge to always conduct business and prospecting activities in a reasonably safe manner, which includes following the recommendations from the National Association of REALTORS® and adhering to the Safe Listings Form to the best of my ability.

I am committed to receive education and in turn to advise consumers and colleagues on best safety practices.

REALTORS® are committed to safety, and I take this pledge because I care about the wellbeing of myself, my clients and customers, my colleagues, and my profession.
