Safe Selling: Understanding How a Predator Thinks

September 11 2018

We're re-running this popular agent safety video series from Real Safe Agent on our broker channel to highlight the importance of safety on the job. Brokers, please feel free to share and/or reuse this content on your own blog, website, social media account, internal communications, and beyond!

What do alcoholics and predators that prey on real estate agents have in common? Find out in this week's Realtor safety video.

Last week, we learned the differences between predators and thieves and why predators are the ones that target real estate agents for violent crimes.

Today, we're taking a deep dive into the mind of the predator to learn how they think. Why? Because understanding their behavior allows us to prevent them from committing crimes.

In the video above, Lee Goldstein, founder of Real Safe Agent, talks about the "offender cycle" -- a psychological pattern that both predators and substance abusers share. Watch the video to learn:

  • How negative feelings of self-worth trigger the offender cycle
  • How predators progress from deviant thoughts to a deviant fantasy life
  • The point of no return when a predator decides to commit a crime

Tune in next week for our next installment of Safe Selling!
