MRIS showed strong representation at this year’s Inman Connect conference and I was proud to attend several sessions where we were able to share our best practices from our areas of expertise. An important panel about agent safety included our Director of Data Center Services, Garry Marsoubian, who discussed different apps that agents can use and tips he has heard from longtime agents.
One main takeaway Garry shared, that was also quoted in this overview of a few safety apps*, is that perpetrators will “feel out” different agents before choosing which one they think they have the biggest advantage over. This means it is important to record the client’s contact details and physical description and share it with other colleagues so there is a track record of who has visited a property. All the panelists did a great job of reassuring the audience that there are a number of options out there to protect agents and you can all continue to do your jobs safely.
