WAAY 31’s latest I-Team investigation takes a comprehensive look at realtors in real danger. Real estate agents are fighting back against the threat of violence and death on-the-job.

Many agents are learning self-defense in an industry the Department of Labor labels a hazardous occupation because of attacks, sexual assaults, even murder. Year after year, killers, kidnappers and rapists target agents, including realtors here in alabama.

More and more realtors are learning to fight back as the industry is warning agents to watch their backs. Meanwhile, the state board of realtors is giving continuing educaton credit for potentially life-saving training.
