Safety Tip #34

Long-term thinking
If you think it may be some time before a property sells (and you may, therefore, be showing it often), get acquainted with a few of the immediate neighbors. You will feel better knowing they know your vehicle, and they will feel better about the stranger (you) who frequently visits their neighborhood.
All tips are taken from NAR's REALTOR® Safety Resource Kit. Go to NAR's safety web pages at for more information on the important topic of REALTOR® safety.
