For Real Estate Professionals
Enhancing Realtor Safety
Do you ever worry about your safety with
a client or at an open house?
Real estate professionals are prime targets for criminals and due to the nature of their job they are required to spend extended periods of time alone with strangers in strange places and it can be a daunting and sometimes unsafe environment.
According to the National Safety Council, there are nearly 60 violent crimes committed against real estate practitioners each year on average. Of these crimes more than 10% are fatal. According to the Olympia, Washington-based Real Estate Safety Council, 21 real-estate professionals in the U.S. were killed while on the job in 2000. “A total of 206 agents died as a result of violent assaults from 1982 to 2000,” states the group’s safety guide, “many more were raped, beaten and robbed.”
React Mobile, LLC (React) has developed an easy to use mobile application that is designed to increase the safety of real estate professionals. The application centers around 3 core capabilities: SOS alerting with GPS location sharing, emergency incident reporting and SMS mass notification. React for Realtors is a necessary safety enhancement tool that can be downloaded to your phone in seconds.
One of the tools that a real estate agent almost always has at their disposal is their cell phone or PDA. The React Mobile app turns your cell phone or PDA into an SOS lifeline and also allows users to report incidents and criminal activity.
React Mobile is an app for iPhone and Android devices but its core functionality is not limited to PDAs and smartphones. Safety is the primary function of React Mobile and all that is required is an Internet signal, WiFi, or cell coverage to work and a location signal to provide your current GPS coordinates.
