Inside the Release: REALTOR® Safety Survey

The National Association of REALTORS’® REALTOR® Safety report was released this morning. The report found 96 percent of REALTORS® have never been the victim of crime, but 40 percent have found themselves in situations where they have feared for their safety or the safety of their personal information.

The survey asked members how safe they feel while on the job and nearly 3,000 REALTORS® from across the U.S. answered questions about their personal experiences, and the safety procedures and materials provided by their brokerage. Here are some of the findings:

  • 96 percent of REALTORS® have never been the victim of a crime while on the job
  • One-third of those surveyed said they carry a self-defense weapon
  • 13 percent use a safety app on their smart phone
  • 38 percent of agents have participated in a self-defense class
