September, designated as REALTOR® Safety Month, is a time to recommit to your personal safety and the safety of your colleagues and clients.

Real estate is a relatively safe profession, says Breanne Gingerich, marketing manager for NAR’s REALTOR® Safety Program, in this week’s “Pivot in Place” video. But there are risks—and having protocols for client meetings, showings, and open houses can mean the difference between life and death. A third of NAR members say they’ve felt unsafe on the job at some point in their careers, according to NAR’s latest Member Safety Report. In two harrowing incidents just this month, an agent confronted an armed man hiding in a vacant home and another averted an attempted abduction. Find out where pros perceive the biggest threats and the actions they’re taking to protect themselves.

Of course, the coronavirus has added a new facet to safety this year. Consult “Coronavirus: A Guide for REALTORS®” to review protocols that can keep you and your clients safe from COVID-19. Bookmark nar.realtor/coronavirus to keep up with how the virus is affecting real estate, including regular updates on what NAR is doing to advocate at the local, state, and national levels to help you continue operations and to protect your interests. While you’re at the website, learn more about NAR’s federal and state advocacy operation, including a major leadership transition announced earlier this month by NAR CEO Bob Goldberg.
