REALTOR Safety Class in Des Moines

posted by Heather Fegan | Sep 20, 2016

Safety is something many of us take for granted. We think, “...that can’t happen to me” or “that type of thing only happens in big cities.” Both of these statements may make you feel “safe” or ease an unsettling feeling, but the truth of the matter is that both of the aforementioned statements are 100% FALSE. Don't stay in denial. Take proactive actions to increase safety for you, your clients, and colleagues.
