REALTOR® safety is an important area of concern for the real estate profession. BCREA advises its members to take precautions and help ensure their safety in their day-to-day business. Here are a few of the Association’s recommendations to help ensure your safety in your real estate practice:

  • when meeting clients, especially for the first time, meet in your office or a public space;
  • have more than one person at meetings and open houses;
  • always have a cell phone at your side;
  • ensure that a colleague, friend or family member knows where you are at all times and when you will be back;
  • don’t publicize personal information; and
  • always trust your instincts.
