You meet lots of people in the real estate business – some nice and some not so nice. The National Association of REALTORS® has recognized the need for thorough training and information on how to maximize REALTOR® safety and we at NOMAR certainly want to do our part to keep our members safe.
Your NOMAR Membership includes free access to the FOREWARN Agent Safety App.
We hope you’ll use the resources on our website and on the NAR Safety Portal to keep yourself protected and to learn how to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
NAR has compiled a comprehensive resource for various apps and products focused on REALTOR® Safety. NOMAR does not sponsor or support any application or product, but we have highlighted three of the best apps from the NAR site.
The NAR-sponsored app, React Mobile, is a personal safety solution that turns your smartphone into a powerful lifeline. With this free app, you can let a wide network, including the local authorities, know where you are and that you need help. Their safety app features a “Follow-Me” function so you can let your trusted contacts know where you’re going and how for how long. The React Mobile smartphone app is available for free to download on iTunes, Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
Another app, Agents Armor, is designed specifically for real estate agents to alert brokers, emergency contacts and authorities everything they need to know about your appointments. The app allows you to let your broker and your emergency contacts know you are on a showing. With the voice memo feature, you can give a description of your client and his/her car; you can even take photos, which is uploaded to a secure server. Throughout the showing, a safety alert checks in to make sure you are safe. If you do not respond, your broker, emergency contacts and the authorities are notified with your GPS coordinates.
Finally, SafeFi is a free app that can be used in any dangerous or uncomfortable situation to instantly alert family, friends, co-workers and 911 that you need help. SafeFi utilizes a patented technology called SNAPP that turns your power button into a rescue button. No need to unlock your phone or navigate through apps, just repeatedly press your smartphone power button and an alert is sent with vital information and GPS coordinates to your network and 911 if needed.
