Why SafeShowings Started

Our founder, Helen Hudson, a REALTOR® in Charleston, SC experienced a situation that made her fear for her personal safety.

Her mission is to deter criminal behavior against Real Estate Professionals, Home Owners, and Clients. Listen to her 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.”
