Safe Selling: The Timeline of a Crime

September 17 2018

Violent crimes against real estate agents don't start when the predator and the agent first meet. In truth, that first meeting is rather late in the timeline of a crime.

Instead, these violent crimes start far earlier--when a predator first chooses a victim.

Last week, we learned about the psychology of predators and the emotional cycle that drives them to commit a violent crime. Today, we're learning what that timeline looks like--from the initial selection to the research and fantasy stages all the way up to the attack. By understanding all the "pre-work" that occurs before a predator even contacts an agent, we can devise a plan to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.

Stay tuned in the weeks ahead as this "Safe Selling" series continues to find out more about protecting yourself!
