54 December 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE W hen Carl Carter, Jr.'s mother, Beverly Carter, was kidnapped and murdered by a pair of clients in 2014 while working as a REALTORĀ®, it inspired him to found the Beverly Carter Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to providing real estate agents with information and tools to enable them to return home safe at the end of each day. A passionate safety advo - cate, Carter travels all over the United States speaking to escrow agents, lenders, agents and brokers about how to avoid becoming victims of crime, and how to protect their clients, as well. He also speaks to others whose pro - fessions require them to travel and work alone, such as salespeople and traveling nurses. "My mom was an angel among us; I strive to honor her life and her legacy with everything I do, and I want all real estate professionals to join me," says Carter. "Let's fight on!" The Beverly Carter Foundation provides research-driven information through articles, studies, training videos, consulting and other types of support at little or no cost. Its members hope to create multiple programs on a na - tional scale to address the issue of safety in the real estate industry. Carter hopes that the tragic loss of his mother will serve to unite members of the real estate industry to focus on safety. CARL CARTER, JR.
