NP Dodge Real Estate Sales Hosts Safe Selling Sessions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 
NP Dodge Real Estate Sales Hosts Safe Selling Sessions
 
Omaha, Nebraska - January 15, 2021 – NP Dodge Real Estate hosted Lee Goldstein, Founder and CEO of Real Safe Agent Wednesday, January 13th through Friday, January 15th virtually on Zoom for one-hour sessions to discuss Safe Selling. Over 100 NP Dodge agents and other division sales associates attended Lee’s educational sessions to learn about crime prevention in the industry. Nate Dodge, President of NP Dodge Company stated "Personal safety is particularly important right now. It is our mission to make sure we do everything we can to keep people as safe as possible."
 
Lee, a leading expert on agent safety, has a background as a therapist for serial predators and has worked in Texas correctional facilities analyzing severe criminal behavior. Lee has spent the past 6 years creating the Real Safe Agent program which covers understanding crime and criminals, reducing the risk of being targeted, pre-showing property evaluations ad assessments, showing safely arrival and preparation, reading the prospect and community safety.
 
Real Safe Agent was founded in 2014 by CEO Lee Goldstein. In late 2014 Lee was reading an article about agent safety and when he read the line: "We as agents will keep ourselves in situations where we feel unsafe simply because we are worried about the sale". At that moment Lee’s previous experience as a therapist for serial predators came alive and he had an epiphany. Lee had a vision for the system, understood what the industry had done wrong, what it needed to do to get to zero crime, and designed the first legitimate academic research into crime against real estate agents.
