One-third of REALTORS® report feeling unsafe during an open house or showing. (NAR, 2021).

The safety of our members is a top priority for NC REALTORS®. Our members routinely find themselves in situations where they are alone with clients they have very little background information on. The very nature of showing real estate to prospective buyers and tenants who are virtual strangers can make agents, both men and women, susceptible to becoming victims of violent crimes. NC REALTORS® aims to provide members with practical and updated safety information through articles, webinars, seminars and training materials.

Please check out the NC Real Estate Agent Safety Guide and refer to the REALTOR® safety resources provided by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Opioid Epidemic

On April 26, 2018, NC REALTORS® President-elect Asa Fleming and Charlotte Regional REALTOR® Association President Jason Gentry joined North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein and representatives from the State Bureau of Investigation and federal Drug Enforcement Administration to unveil new guidelines for real estate brokers to assist in preventing drug diversion.

In homes across our state, individuals have numerous prescription medicines which, if placed into the wrong hands, could perpetuate and exacerbate our state’s growing opioid addiction epidemic.

These guidelines establish reasonable standards for REALTORS® and brokers to assist in their communication with their clients as they go to open up their homes for sale.
