REALTOR® safety is an important element of our business that is often overlooked or ignored. Here is a REALTOR® safety tip to keep in mind throughout the year


Tip: Block identity theft

Contact the fraud department of any of the three consumer reporting companies— Equifax®, ExperianSM and Trans Union®—to place a fraud alert on your credit report. The fraud alert automatically lets credit card companies and other creditors know they must contact you before opening any new accounts or making any changes to your existing accounts.
