What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Beverly Carter, a Real Estate Executive Broker in North Little Rock, Arkansas, was kidnapped and murdered in September 2014 while doing the work she loved. Her death was a devastating tragedy to her husband, children, parents, grandchildren, and friends.

Within the industry she loved, Beverly's murder catapulted a national conversation about safety to the forefront of the real estate organizations. Since her death, Beverly's son, Carl Carter, has spoken to tens of thousands of agents across the United States. Carl's experience has been that the national conversation around safety
has yet to produce broad improvements to safety for agents.

The Beverly Carter Foundation was founded to create a lasting, substantive, positive impact on safety that every agent needs - and deserves.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Beverly Carter Foundation (BCF) is a completely independent not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the ideal that every agent goes home safe every day by providing scientifically based research, information, consulting, training, and support at little to no charge to every MLS, association, brokerage, and agent.

The Beverly Carter Foundation was created as a result of the senseless kidnapping and murder of real estate broker Beverly Carter. Beverly was targeted because she was perceived to be a “rich broker who worked alone.”

Foundation Programs for Improving Safety
The Beverly Carter Foundation envisions multiple, national-scale programs to address the current state of safety in the real estate industry. At the heart of the all safety programs developed and delivered by the Beverly Carter Foundation is a grounding in research around behavioral science, predator profiling, and “real world” tools to prevent and deter crime.

Educational Resources
The Foundation will work with industry and criminology experts to develop publications, videos, online training, and social media resources available for free from the Foundation’s website.

Instructor-Led Training & Certification Program
The Foundation will provide instructor-led training through online modalities at no cost to MLSs, associations, brokerages, and agents. Additionally, a meaningful certification for Instructor Trainers, Trainers, and students will be developed to expand the reach of these training resources as quickly as possible.

Safety Seminars and Certification Events
The Foundation will host Safety Seminars and Certification Events throughout the continental U.S. to engage MLSs, associations, brokers, and agents where they are. These half and full day seminars and certification events will provide the most effective way to engage face-to-face with the industry at large and promote agent safety beyond digital marketing efforts. The goal is to make these events count
toward Continuing Education requirements.

Technology Support & Endorsement
The Foundation will review, endorse, and provide limited support for technologies deemed to improve the safety of agents - without ANY payments from vendors in the form of time, money, or services. This independence will allow the Foundation to make safety product and service evaluations, recommendations, and endorsements without bias or any interest other than improving agent safety.

Victim Support & Advocacy
The Foundation will set up a relief fund for victims of violence with the aim of providing financial, emotional, and legal resources to agents who were victims of violence during the selling or leasing of real estate properties.

Agent Safety Legislation
The Foundation will work with Federal, State, and Local government officials to pass laws designed to improve the safety of the real estate industry. Many opportunities exist to expand protections of real estate agents, such as additional penalties for crimes against agents. But there also exist opportunities to reduce regulatory constraints that will improve various industries associated with real estate to work
together to improve safety for all.
