Calgary Alberta – The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) urges real estate professionals to review the work and personal safety resources available to them.
On June 22, 2019, Calgary Police Services were called in to investigate the sexual assault of a real estate professional who was working alone at an open house. RECA is saddened by this event and our thoughts are with this industry member.
RECA takes the safety of industry members seriously. We urge all real estate professionals to review the Fundamentals of Real Estate Unit 3–Session 7: Working Safely. Use this review to update your personal processes so you stay informed, prepared and aware. You can access the Fundamentals of Real Estate manual through your myRECA account.
To prepare for your safety at open houses (or other situations where meeting members of the public):
Industry professionals should bring any concerns about their brokerage safety policy to their broker.
