Since September is National Realtors Safety Month, Officer J. Allen, Business Watch Coordinator of the Alpharetta Police Department, reviewed safety tips for Realtors at the Harry Norman Realtors - North Fulton office. The following websites will help all of us to be aware of crime in our neighborhoods or a neighborhood that our clients might like to live in:
Officer Allen reminded all of us to take ten seconds to be safe. As we park our cars, look around to assess our surroundings. When we arrive at a house to show, take 2 seconds to look around and make sure that everything is OK when unlocking the house. Also, after entering a house, take a few seconds to make sure all looks and feels OK before proceeding with the showing. When leaving the property, make sure everything is locked up.
These small tips help when showing property but also even when we aren't. Remember when the little hairs on the back of your head stand up, it is OK to call for help.
When parking your car, don't leave anything of value in plain sight. Put brief cases and other valuables in the trunk of your car before you arrive at your destination.
