REALTOR Self Protection Training - Violence By Appointment
Rob Andress brings over 32 years experience as a licensed REALTOR and Broker of Record – Rob lives your life on a daily basis. Realtor violence happens, and it when it happens it usually results in a violent crime.
Due to lack of a reporting vehicle or monitoring of crimes, Realtors don't have immediate access to the statistics and risk involved in completing their job. Although attacks happen around them and they may hear the stories, they still don't see the risk they face on a regular basis. This lack of reporting keeps these Anti Social Crimes a secret from the people most at risk.
Many Realtors don’t think they need training because they’ll never be attacked - but when it happens, most crimes against Realtors are highly violent crimes and in multiple cases have resulted in the loss of life.
To a criminal, a Realtor is a soft target.
How do you look?
Are you alone?
Can the criminal set the time and day for the attack?
The nature of Real Estate puts Realtors at risk. Successful Realtors are high profile, they look like money - and that attracts crime. You meet new people all the time and sometimes it’s at isolated or vacant properties, and most of the time you are alone.
Crimes against Canadian Realtors are on the rise.
Realtors publish their photo, phone numbers, online access, Facebook and Instagram pages, and office addresses. In many cases they advertise where they’ll be and at what times, with listings for open houses.

We will teach you though an understanding of Space Management how make yourself a much harder target to get to. We've been trained to rely on our phones and technology to help us with everything - but relying on a call to 911 or having a Realtor Safety App for your protection is almost as bad as not investing 5 hours into your personal safety and training! Did you know 911 cannot determine your exact location? In most cases a call for help to 911 takes 12 to 18 minutes for help to arrive, Too late, your attack can be over in under 2 minutes - and your life may be as well. And that Realtor App? In a high violence situation, your motor skills break down almost to the point of being non-functional. If you believe you can access your phone, unlock the screen, find your Realtor Safety App and hit the button - all while you’re in the mist of being beaten, robbed or worse, all you’ve really done is made yourself a Softer Target for attack.
In a recent study 25% of Male Realtors and 55% of Canadian Female Realtors have experience a fearful situation when doing their job.
