LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (PRWEB) July 29, 2020
Realty ONE Group International, one of the fastest growing real estate franchisors in the nation, continues to raise awareness for REALTOR® safety, especially during these uncertain times, by hosting world renowned martial artist, Michelle Manu, and other special guests to remind real estate pros to stay alert and vigilant about their own safety.
According to the 2019 Member Safety Report from the National Association of REALTORS®, 33% of REALTORS® experienced a situation that made them fear for their personal safety or safety of their personal information.
“All real estate professionals need to be aware and ready to protect themselves when doing their jobs, providing for their families,” says Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group. “We’re committed through our support of the Beverly Carter Foundation and work with self-defense artists like Michelle to empower all real estate pros to stay safe. We’re ONE family of real estate professionals taking care of each other.”
On a recent power-packed Town Hall, also streamed live on the company’s Facebook page, Manu demonstrated a number of ways REALTORS® could fend off attacks at an open house or home showing and emphasized staying alert and aware at all times. Only a few weeks ago, Manu joined Carl Carter Jr., founder of the Beverly Carter Foundation, to launch ongoing conversations and trainings about safety.
WHAT REALTORS® ARE SAYING ABOUT SAFETY TODAY
“My husband is a Critical Care Pulmonologist and an ICU doctor, so he reminds me daily of the serious challenge we all face,” said Joan Levinson, one of the highest producing real estate professionals in Arizona with Realty ONE Group in Paradise Valley. “Safety, therefore, is our number one concern, and we’ve initiated multiple new protocols to ensure the safety of both REALTORs® and our clients. No one is perfect, but we can all try our best, since, without the health, safety, and capability of all involved the home purchase experience would not be possible!”
“REALTOR® safety is even more of a concern today because we can’t see the faces of new clients when we‘re meeting them at houses,” said Jillian Bachelor, a Realty ONE Group top-producing real estate professional in Las Vegas, NV. “They are wearing a mask and sunglasses which it makes it even more difficult. Our entire team now does extensive social media research on every new client before each meeting.”
“I prefer to see the faces of my new clients prior to a showing, therefore, I remind them that I’ll provide masks and gloves, including for young children and family members,” said Suzi Dailey a premier, luxury real estate professional with Realty ONE Group in Newport Beach, CA. “Social distancing is good behavior for both health and personal safety reasons, which everyone respects. I feel blessed that we are able to continue to help and serve our community during a critical time in people’s lives.”
“The town hall with Michelle Manu – HANDS DOWN – the best one to date for various reasons, but always safety first,” said Erika Muto, a real estate professional with Realty ONE Group Restore in Collegeville, PA. “I can’t believe how lucky I am to be a part of this organization. Twenty years in the corporate world and I can’t recall feeling this important and cared for as an employee.”
The UNBrokerage began hosting live Town Halls in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic and recently launched a health series with special guests, like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Realty ONE Group leadership discussing social, mental, physical and financial health.
With a bright future ahead, Realty ONE Group is transcending into a lifestyle brand, embodying a thriving spirit and COOLTURE, while focusing on business coaching and proprietary technologies. The company now has more than 13,000 real estate professionals in over 280 locations across 43 states, Washington D.C. and Canada.
