Safety is of paramount importance for real estate agents due to the nature of their work, which often involves meeting with strangers, visiting unfamiliar properties, and conducting business in various locations. Yes, both male and female real estate agents can be at risk when it comes to safety concerns in their profession. Safety risks are not limited by gender; rather, they are primarily influenced by the nature of the work, the situations agents find themselves in, and the precautions taken to mitigate those risks.
Thankful Bermuda has a history of being a safe jurisdiction, but it is always wise to be aware. It has therefore been proposed and approved that Larry Sticca facilitate a Safety for Realtors Workshop as offered by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Some of the topics that may be addressed are: Unfamiliar environments, Open houses, Late hours, Pre-screening client, Buddy system and technology.
By staying vigilant, using common-sense safety practices, and maintaining open communication, real estate agents can significantly reduce the risks associated with their profession and create a safer work environment for themselves.
Larry is willing to waive his fee for the course, which will be offered to NAR members and Nonmembers alike; but agents are encouraged to join NAR. Membership is only $75 per year and offers excellent value.
The course is only open to members of the Real Estate Division, and will be given on Wed 27/09/2023 10:00 - 11:30 in person at the Chamber of Commerce boardroom (limited to 60 seats). An option to attend online is also available.
