There is a RealtorÂ® specialization called - please don't be offended - the Senior Real Estate Specialist - and Real Estate Professionals with the letters SRES after their names have taken special workshops to remind them of the needs of people over, well, my age and older.
All the best,
Are you wanting to enter the Professional field of Real Estate? If so, I always like to leave the address of where I'm going and the number with my lead or my husband. I call before going and call when I'm leaving. You have to be careful in every day life. It's when you aren't worried, when you get into danger.
If you are asking, should you worry about picking a Real Estate Agent? No, in Alabama we are required to have background checks. I don't think you have anything to worry about. You could always have a friend accompany you if that makes you feel safe.

I am a young agent, I worry sometimes myself about whom I am alone with in a home.
If in doubt, I won't even go into the home. I will call a co-worker to come with me. There was only 1 time that I did not assist, and this was when I had a single female tenant call me to view one of my rentals.
When I pulled up, there were 2 car loads of men- so I just drove on by. Not worth the risk.
