Did you know that 45 percent of females and 40 percent of males participating in the 2018 National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Member Safety Report say they carry a self-defense weapon?
That’s just one of the statistics cited in the report, which lists pepper spray as the most popular weapon for women and firearms as the most frequently used by men. Other options included: pocket knives, tasers, batons, clubs or noisemakers.
The 2018 NAR Member Safety Report offers the results of more than 3,000 REALTORS® who responded to a survey sent to 53,681 members.
In addition to survey results, the report offers resources for association executives, brokerage offices and individuals.
