REALTOR® Safe Harbor
REALTORS® often need a simple way to find safe, public locations to meet prospective clients. REALTOR® Safe Harbors are locations who have agreed to allow REALTORS® to meet at their office, copy a drivers license, print a Prospect Identification Form – free of charge.
Oklahoma REALTORS® can simply go to REALTORSafeHarbor.com to quickly find all Safe Harbor locations in their area. The location can be quickly forwarded to a client with a few clicks. Mobile apps are available for iOS and Android and can be found by searching for “Realtor Safe Harbor” in the App Store or Google Play.
To sign up your office to become a safe harbor, go to REALTORSafeHarbor.com.
REALTOR® Safe Harbor is a partnership between the Oklahoma Association of REALTORS® and Real Agent Guard: We’re safer together.
