Tips For Personal Safety : #1 Strangers


I thought that it might be a nice thing to alert you to a few facts about watching your back when your out in the field.

This first tip is about dealing with strangers, and I'll make it brief.

Never think for a moment that we're unapproachable or inaccessible to crime and the destructive elements that accompany the slimeballs that lurk among us.

Everyone can become a victim of these diseased lunatics.

You have to remain vigilant. Especially in these tough days ahead.

Remember Sarah Walker, for starters.

Now, I'm not one to try to come off as authoritative, but I want to protect my friends, business acquaintances and family, so I'll just say this:

Don't ever meet a stranger or a potential buyer, that you believe hasn't been, or isn't, qualified, alone at any property that they request to see no matter how polite they appear to be.

Try to meet clients at your office first or you might be flirting with danger, with disaster.

Always be careful ! Always be safe !

Do you have any real life experiences you'd like to share, or any thoughts ?

Thanks for sharing the details of your encounter with that slimeball, Erica. What these obnoxious creeps are missing from their logic is decency and courtesy,

Why would anyone show a stranger a vacant house for any reason any more than they would let them into their own home ?

If the agent, who later called you, agreed to meet that butthead without first identifying who that person was, I'd put that agent on my %@!& list and never send them a referral or take one from them because of the potential they have to compromise the safety of my staff and my company. I wouldn't give that salesperson a second chance.

Glad you wrote that scum off. The world is too dangerous to take chances with your own life or the lives of your friends, family, and colleagues for a few bucks.

Great to hear from you.
