Your Safety is Non-Negotiable: The Beverly Carter Story

Carl Carter Jr. is a REALTOR® and founder of the Beverly Carter Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving agent safety. On Wednesday, September 2, he kicked off September’s REALTOR® Safety Month with his presentation, “Your Safety is Non-Negotiable: The Beverly Carter Story,” to educate and provide you with the resources and best practices you need while working in the real estate industry.

He also shared the story of his mother to reinforce the importance of staying safe at work. His mom, REALTOR® Beverly Carter, lost her life at the hands of a couple posing as clients in 2014. Since then, Carl has dedicated his many efforts to spreading the message of safety to REALTORS® near and far. As a certified Franklin Covey Facilitator, a DDI Certified Facilitator and an Achieve Global Educator, Carl delivered a presentation on REALTOR® safety that only someone with his background and experience could give.  If you missed this powerful webinar, you can view it here.
