Safety is always a concern. If there is no alternative and you have to run out to show a property to someone you don't know other than a quick phone call, be sure to let a colleague or family know where you are going and the name and # you received the call from. It's better in my opinion to have them meet you at your office prior to showing,. First off you can see if the buyer is serious and second you and your office will have their info
You should always be concerned about security.
When meeting a customer, especially the first time, I let my husband know the Name of the person, where I will be meeting them, the phone number the customer gave me & the number the call came from if different. He will then call me about 5 minutes after we are to meet to make sure I am safe. We have a password that I would give him if I felt there was any danger.
