Important Alert & Safety Reminder

The below alert went out from GTAR to its members, but we wanted to share the information and good tips. Stay safe out there!


July 31, 2015

GTAR has received reports from several female members that a male has called them stating that he is interested in looking at property. After several odd questions and comments the individual continues to ask to have a showing by the female GTAR member. Because of smart safety precautions on the part of the GTAR members they told the individual that they were going to bring their male broker with them to the showing. This is when the individual gets agitated and no longer wants to move forward. These incidents have been shared with law enforcement.

A few REALTOR® safety tips:

Checking-in

When you have a new client, ask him/her to stop by your office and complete a Prospect Identification Form available here. Also, photocopy their driver's license and retain this information at your office. Be certain to properly discard this personal information when you no longer need it. Do not agree to a private showing unless the client has stopped by your office.

"Who's calling?"

Install caller I.D. on your telephone, which should automatically reject calls from numbers that have been blocked. This will provide you with immediate information about the source of the call.

Agree on an office distress code

Create a voice distress code, a secret word or phrase that is not commonly used but can be worked into any conversation for cases where you feel that you are in danger. Use this if the person you are with can overhear the conversation, but you don't want to alarm them. Example: "Hi, this is Jennifer. I'm with Mr. Henderson at the Elm Street listing. Could you email me the RED FILE?"

Additional safety information may also be found at www.REALTOR.org/Safety. Please be safe!

Compliance 101: More Than a Required Class

Have you taken the Compliance 101 class recently? Compliance 101 is an MFRMLS class that is required every two years.

A large number of members currently need to take the class by the end of this year.

Why Compliance 101?

The primary purpose of the MLS is to provide a database of accurate listings and listing information that can help all members succeed. Compliance 101 will help you avoid common fines and other mistakes that impact you — and your colleagues.

Check Your Due Date for Class Completion

Log into the GoPher It portal and you will see a small note under the menu items that tells you when your next due date is for class completion. (See screenshot below)

Important Note: If you have recently taken the class, please allow three business days for your class attendance to reflect in our records and in the due date that’s reflected in the GoPher It portal. Once you take the class, you will be required to take the class again in two years.
