Broker Safety

Per the Division of Real Estate there are recent instances of someone pretending to be a buyer and baiting real estate brokers into meeting, under the pretext of wanting to look at homes for sale. Remember, to never let you guard down, even when it appears a potential sale is coming your way!

Real Safe Agent

We are excited to announce, to help keep you and your colleagues safe, we are deploying the Real Safe Agent System. Real Safe Agent is not a personal safety app, it’s a crime prevention system for the real estate industry that allows the entire real estate community to collaborate and cooperate to keep each other safe. Real Safe Agent will be available to download Tuesday, March 12th. FREE TO MAR MEMBERS!

Click here for a video explaining the features of the Real Safe Agent system.
