Des Moines Association of Realtors steps up its safety game

The Iowa chapter is putting clients’ minds at ease when it comes to showings and open houses

Working in real estate means interacting with strangers on a semi-regular basis. While this is true for many industries, most careers don’t require the one-on-one interaction — often in someone’s private abode — that real estate involves. Given the nature of the job, safety is a common concern, which is why the Des Moines Area Association of Realtors (DMAAR) has developed a program and pledge to protect both agents and their clients during the buying and selling process.
