September is REALTOR Safety Month and with good reason.
Real estate agent, Jason Compton, shares his harrowing story of being held at gunpoint while showing a house. Hear the entire story as well as how he survived and what happened to the assailant. It is guaranteed to scare you and make you mad.
Unfortunately, attacks like Jason's are not unusual in the real estate profession. Nine percent of all real estate agents reported being attacked in 2019. Twenty-three percent of real estate agents even said that at some point in the past year they felt unsafe in their profession. The number rises to 41% for female agents. Only 5 percent said they never felt unsafe at work.
This week's podcast provides you these stats and more from the National Association of Realtor's Annual Agent Safety Report as well as Jason's story. And because this topic is so important we went a little over our normal 30 minutes timeframe.
