Did You Know 25% of Male Real Estate Professionals and 44% of Female Real Estate Professionals Have Experienced a Fearful Situation on the Job?
Like most people, real estate professionals generally think they’ll never fall victim to violence. So they often don’t even consider learning violence-prevention skills.
But people in the real estate industry are at greater risk than most others since they work with people they don’t know, often at isolated locations or on vacant properties.
When crimes against real estate professionals do occur, the majority of them tend to be violent and, in many cases, have resulted in hospitalization and, in some cases, loss of life. To a criminal, a real estate professional is often a soft target.
The mobile SAFE International™ Real Estate Professional Violence-Prevention program directed by Rob Andress addresses all the probable risks and threats a real estate professional may encounter.
Video excerpt from one of our senior courses showing one approach an attacker may use to distract their potential victim before attacking:
As you can see, we incorporate humour into all our self-defense presentations, ensuring all the participants feel comfortable while explaining serious topics.
We believe everyone should have the right self-defense skills when faced with the potential of serious physical harm. So, while our popular course, which was featured in www.star.com, focuses on how to avoid dangerous scenarios, we also give time to the physical concepts of self-defense.
We teach participants to strike the most vulnerable targets on the body in a way that does not require an impressive deal of strength. In addition to teaching a few strikes, we address the most common attacks one might experience. We practice all of this in a supportive and safe environment.
And the best part is that we can come to you. SAFE International is a mobile self-protection business, and we can instruct seniors in their homes, retirement homes, seniors centres, or anywhere a group may be gathering.
