The recent murder of REALTOR(R) Beverly Carter has been a wake up call to our industry. Too often we rush off to show property to someone we have never met...and sometimes we don't even have their phone number to confirm! I know some people are hesitant to give their name and number as they might be "tricked" into buying something, but if they won't, then don't! All of us must be extremely diligent about our surroundings and listen to our inner voice that is niggling us: "NO, NO, NO"! Beverly was killed doing her job. So the next time a REALTOR(R) wants to confirm your name and number or ask for ID, please understand it's for fraud and safety reasons.
Be careful out there.
