It’s been about 10 years, what seems like a lifetime ago when I used to work in marketing for a home builder. My team worked to support our sales agents who were on site selling homes out of trailers. Some communities were very rural and quite deserted. Not all of the managers were lucky enough to have assistants on site and we’d had several incidents that caused anxiety amongst our sales team which have alerted us to consider agent safety. I mean, can you imagine being along in an unlocked trailer all day long and into the night, where strangers are constantly walking through the door?
One of my best friends still works for this builder and it’s worrisome to think of her sitting there by herself on occasion. We all think we’ve got a handle on situations but you just never know who may be walking through your door next and why. My worries were exacerbated when an agent in another state was murdered during what was believed to be a robbery.
Real Agent Guard is an app that was created to protect real estate agents from potential dangers, whatever they may be. It features a FailSafe PIN, geolocation tracker, and timer based check-ins. Real Agent Guard’s goal is to raise awareness about the app and the video surveillance.
The app is color coded as follows.
Red = agents
Blue = friends and family
Green = enterprise.
If the agent fails to login after a small amount of time, it alerts someone who calls them to check in. If something does go wrong, they can forward all info to the police. Simply reading about it won’t give you the best idea of how this app works, so check out Real Agent Guard in action. Who wouldn’t want to use an app that helps keep them safe?

I’ve never heard of Real Agent Guard. It’s so cool that there are apps that can help you manage such a large piece of property.
