Every day, REALTORS® interact with strangers potentially putting themselves at risk. Men and women are put in isolated situations. The nature of showing real estate makes agents vulnerable to attack. With that in mind, CREA has provided a portal on REALTOR Link® with tips on how to keep yourself safe while working.
This is just the start. CREA is asking for your input to help create an ever growing on-line resource for REALTORS® to use that will provide substantial information about safety. We are asking Boards & Associations for any articles, publications or personal stories you’d like to share and, in turn, we will share them.
Please send any material you might have to Jonathan Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration.
Recently CREA commissioned the Swanepoel | T3 Group to research and identify emerging cultural and economic trends that might have an impact on the real estate industry in Canada. The DANGER Report, which was presented at the T3 Summit, is devised to foster important conversations within the REALTOR® Community.
The idea behind the Report is to consider the implications of threats that could impact the residential real estate industry.
The report can be accessed through REALTOR Link® and hard copies will be sent out to each Board and Association.
