a€œIn the past 25 years, over 250 real-estate agents have been assaulted on the job. Many of them raped and murdered.a€ Charlie Daniels, president of Montanaa€™s largest board of Realtors, read this statement to his associates. It was from the National Association of Realtors and arrived only days before the first-ever rape-murder of a city Realtor. Another killing followed.
