Founded by the founder of a real estate brokerage to serve other brokerages and their agents, Protect Now’s aim is to create a community dedicated to help keep us all safe from harm by bringing together the latest and best safety technology, tools and resources. Because we’d rather see us all on the job – and out of the headlines!
We’ve partnered with leading safety providers, and are supported by leading real estate technology providers. Our primary goal is to help brokerages keep their agents safer on the job. But on top of that, we also help brokerages employ better safety and security practices to help improve their business.
