RRAR President: Tragedy Reminds Us that Safety Starts At Home

Published Tuesday, September 25, 2018

On Monday, September 24th 2018, a 33 year-old Florida REALTOR® and mother of four young children named Samantha Keithley tragically lost her life to domestic violence.

Each September we take time to recognize the dangers REALTORS® are faced with in the course of our profession, but as this year's REALTOR® Safety Month draws to a close, we are painfully reminded that for some our our colleagues, the danger is lurking at home.

If you feel unsafe at home or are being hurt, there are people that understand and are ready to help! There are two crisis hotlines you can call 24 Hours a Day:
National Domestic Violence Hotline: (800) 799-SAFE (7233)
Wake County InterAct Crisis Line: (919) 828-7740

Violence is never okay and no one should be afraid in their own home - please reach out today!

A GoFundMe Page has been set up in Samantha Keithley's memory, and for her children.

2018 President, Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS®
