There are too many headlines about real estate agents feeling unsafe in their jobs. By the nature of the job, real estate agents are often alone, in unfamiliar areas, in public, and on-the-go. Unfortunately, there is a constant stream of stories of agents being targets of violence or harassment.
There are many steps you can take to ensure you’re safe while going about your daily grind, such as:
- Taking self-defense lessons
- The buddy system
- Safety technology
- Use your brokerage office for meetings with new clients
- Only show properties before dark
When you’re going into a vacant home, when you’re in an unfamiliar neighborhood, when you’re meeting with somebody new, or when you’re walking alone at night. Whether the situation is perfectly safe or not, it’s important to have peace of mind.
Everything MoxiWorks does is powered by the drive to make real estate a prosperous business to be in, from integrating all of a brokerage’s technology to reduce hassle, to helping you agents manage their database and taking the pain out of Facebook advertising. MoxiWorks is committed to making real estate agents more successful, and that means enabling you to do your everyday job with more ease. Feeling safe in your job and in your everyday life is not a perk, but a necessity.
So, we set out to find a way to help. Even though we aren’t experts in the field of physical safety, we knew those experts were out there and we knew there had to be something we could do. We partnered up with Revolar, an innovative safety device company, to help extend peace of mind to as many real estate agents across the U.S. as possible.
Through the end of April, you can get 45% off your Revolar Instinct purchase by using the promo code “moxiworks” at checkout.
Disclaimer: MoxiWorks is not making a dime off this partnership. It is not an affiliate marketing trap, or a perk for us, but truly an effort to give back to the community in which we operate, and it turns out Revolar wanted to do the same.
Revolar creates personal safety devices that connect you to emergency contacts with the click of a button. It’s a small piece of wearable technology syncs with your smartphone via Bluetooth technology. The simple 1-2-3 click alert system makes it easy to check in or request help in situations where you might not have the time to fish for your phone to call or text. The three types of alerts, each with a customizable message, is sent to your emergency contacts when you click the safety button. Whether it’s a check-in, an uneasy feeling, or an emergency, your designated contacts will receive your pre-set message via text, along with your GPS location so they can ensure you make it to your destination safely.
While we hope you never have to use it, we do hope that it gives you peace of mind and comfort as you go to work every day with the comfort of knowing you can reach someone for help if you need to. Take advantage of this promotion, stay safe, and know that MoxiWorks has your back.
