"I had the privilege of attending the first Violence Prevention and Active Shooter Survival Class for Realtors® this year. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and feel empowered and better prepared to protect myself should I encounter a violent person while performing my usual real estate work. I specifically appreciated learning how to be better aware of my surroundings, always positioning myself for my optimum safety and receiving a better understanding of a criminals methods and mindset to best protect myself. I emphatically suggest this class be taken by every Realtor® / Agent / Broker. Everyone being prepared and empowered for every situation is a huge benefit to the entire Real Estate community!"

The number of assaults against real estate professionals is on the rise, with the nature of attacks becoming more
violent and sometime deadly. Realtors across the country have been attacked in model homes, during open
houses, and in their own office. Real estate professionals regularly meet people they do not know at isolated
properties, often alone. A growing number of realtors say that they feel unsafe and vulnerable in these situations.
