REALTOR Safety Month Tip: Put Together an Emergency Kit

According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2019 Member Safety Report, 33% of agents have experienced a situation that made them fear for their safety, or for the safety of their personal information. There are also times when common sense can keep things moving along in case of "mini" emergencies.

Assembling a few supplies to have in your trunk will also help ensure safety at your showings. Examples: A first-aid kit, phone charger, jumper cables (if you or your client's car dies), basic cleaning supplies, a change of clothes, flashlight and batteries, a room measurer, work gloves, and essential tools to install or repair a listing sign.
