Local Companies Get Proactive About Real Estate Agent Safety
March 23, 2006 – Fresno, CA. Three local Fresno companies have joined forces to make real estate agents safer. Team Realty Blue is the first real estate company to enhance the training program for their agents with the help of Master Dave Johnson of Executive Martial Arts and with gym facilities provided by George Brown’s GB3.
In response to the brutal beating of a local real estate agent last month, Seieido Master Dave Johnson, who is also a local Real Estate Broker, recently developed a real estate agent safety course to address self-defense issues and escape tactics for agents. When Realty Blue heard what Master Johnson was doing for local agents, they immediately saw the value in promoting such a program and signed on as the launch customer and to help Master Johnson fine-tune the training for broader distribution.
“In light of recent local events, we thought it prudent to offer additional hands-on safety training to our agents and staff”, says Jeff Schrager, Broker for Realty Blue. “We are excited to see this type of training available and given the fact that Master Johnson is himself a local Real Estate Broker gives this specialty training extra value to us as he has tailored his program to fit our needs as real estate professionals.”
“The program is an 8-hour two day intensive course with the second day being Hands-on Close Quarter Self-Defense and Escape Training, but it is designed to be fun as well.” says Master Johnson. “The training is realistic and focuses on awareness, prevention, self-defense, and escape techniques that may help you get out of a bad situation or, better yet, just avoid one altogether.”
Master Johnson went on to say “We are trying to get the word out to the Real Estate community that this valuable training is available NOW for individuals as well as companies that want to be proactive about agent safety. I am looking forward to seeing this program grow locally throughout the state and then hopefully be adopted on a national basis by the National Association of Realtors as safety and security isn’t a local or a regional issue but, as we all know, can affect anyone anywhere. My wife is also an agent, and as a Real Estate Broker myself, I have a vested interest in seeing our industry be as safe as possible and with my skills as a self-defense expert, I have a unique ability to help make it happen”.
