Why SafeShowings Started

Our founder, Helen Hudson, a REALTOR® in Charleston, SC experienced a situation that made her fear for her personal safety. She researched safety apps, and none were what she was looking for, so she created her own; SafeShowings!

The number of crimes and murders committed against real estate professionals continues to increase every year, even since the below video was produced. This is why all real estate professionals must put their safety first and use the SafeShowings app. The mission of SafeShowings is to deter criminal behavior against Real Estate Professionals, Home Owners, and Clients. Listen to Helen’s story below.

“My goal is to deter criminal behavior by creating a law, policy, or procedure that requires Real Estate Professionals to capture a photo of the face of each person that crosses the threshold of a home. The SafeShowings App that I created will securely capture an image of the buyer’s face and deter criminal behavior against Real Estate Professionals.”
