In an on-going effort to demonstrate REALTOR® safety, Golden Triangle Association of REALTORS® has entered a partnership with Real Agent Guard to provide a safe and convenient way for agents to meet unvetted clients while away from their home office.
What's a REALTOR® Safe Harbor?
The REALTOR® Safe Harbor Program and Mobile App is a free service that allows local businesses to pledge their reception/lobby areas as "safe harbors" for agents. Once a business has agreed to participate their location is then highlighted on a mapping tool within the app.
The concept was developed in 2014 by the Arkansas Association of REALTORS® in the wake of the death of REALTOR® Beverly Carter. Carter was lured into showing a property to a potential buyer who then abducted and murdered her. The REALTOR® Safe Harbor Program provides an alternative to agents in need of a safe and convenient meeting space
REALTORS® often need a simple way to find safe, public locations to meet prospective clients. REALTOR® Safe Harbors are locations who have agreed to allow REALTORS® to meet at their office.
REALTORS® can simply go to http://REALTORSafeHarbor.com to quickly find all Safe Harbor locations in their area. The location can be quickly forwarded to a client with a few clicks. To sign your office up to become a safe harbor, go to http://REALTORSafeHarbor.com
