Why Real Estate Agent Self-Defense?

“The nature of our business can put real estate agents at risk because we meet with complete strangers in isolated properties.

In the past years, real estate homicides are rising sharply.”

— Barbara Corcoran, Shark Tank

The Risks are Real

Federal statistics show that Realtors are twice as likely as the general public to be victims of violent crime.

The National Association of Realtors Report.

  • Real Estate agents that have been victims of crime while working 6% 6%
  • Real Estate agents have felt fear while showing a property 38% 38%
  • Real Estate agents have attended a self-defense class 39% 39%

According to ABC News, 20 Realtors® have been murdered on the job in the past decade. The reasons are obvious: They often work alone at odd hours meeting strangers in vacant properties.

Real Estate Agents are Soft Targets

Crime by Appointment

Most people would never meet a stranger in a secluded house, but real estate agents do it for a living.   According to the National Association of Realtors, 48% of all REALTORS© have felt physically threatened and uncomfortable during a showing.

So many real estate agents are attacked is because their job requires them to be alone with random strangers.

Why Target Real Estate Agents?

Successful real estate agents are high profile. They look like “money.” Money attracts bad guys.

As a recent high profile real estate agent murderer was being escorted to a squad car in handcuffs he was asked, “Why did you choose her?” His answer was, “She was a rich broker and alone.”

The victim was an agent who has shown properties for decades without incident. She told her husband and office where she was at. That does not offer protection. 

The bad guy has a plan and it involves either property, assault, or perversion. We teach you how to prevent that moment.


What is the COBRA Real Estate Agent Self-Defense Program?

This program is designed specifically for real estate agents. Agents come in all shapes and sizes. Our program is NOT martial arts based. It is 95% strategic prevention.

With our law enforcement experience, we know that criminals want the easiest path to your possessions and/or their perversions. Our job is to teach you how to present yourself as a difficult target rather than a soft target.

Our program starts with some eye-opening myth-busting about self-defense. Imagine going skydiving with a parachute app instead of a real parachute. When that door opens for you to jump, the app is useless. You need a real parachute. COBRA-Defense is that parachute for your safety.

Once an attack starts, even if you can call 911, it will take 7 – 11 minutes for help to arrive. We teach you how to survive that critical window. You will learn how to be your own first responder.

Meet John Graden

John Graden has many articles in Realtor Mag on self-defense and safety for agents.

“For a Real Estate agent, learning self-defense is as important as a child learning how to swim. You may never need it, but when you do, there is no substitute. “

John Graden

Safety and Self-Defense Expert, Writer for Realtor Magazine.

“Every real estate agent needs to take this course. I’m surprised at how little I knew about self-defense. It’s like everything I’ve learned was wrong. Diana Davis

Real Estate Agent, Charles Rutenberg Realty

“I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I thought because I have a gun, I was safe. This has been a real eye opener for me. Great course. Jessica Bowen
