There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t hear a story about hacking, identity theft, and/or cybersecurity. What steps can you take to protect both yourself and your clients from the very real cyber-risks that are out there?

  • You’re being recorded almost everywhere you go—risks to your buyers and you when you’re out showing a property.
