Safety for REALTORS®
Like many other jobs that require interaction with the public, selling real estate involves some risk. The National Association of REALTORS® is committed to protecting its members and maintaining their personal safety. By educating REALTORS® about potential threats and providing them with resources to protect themselves, NAR can help REALTORS® stay safe.
