 New York City real estate agents can breath a sigh of relief: NYC is not a dangerous place to do business, according to a recent study. However, for other brokers across the U.S., meeting with strange clients on a daily basis is far more risky.

Here is a look at the top five most dangerous cities in which to sell real estate, according to Housingwire.

5. Saginaw, Mich.
According to a data from Location, Inc., an analysis firm, Saginaw, Mich., just north of Detroit, is the fifth most dangerous place in America to work as a real estate broker. With a population of about 51,000, town records show 2,976 violent and property crimes in 2013.

4. West Memphis, Ark.
This southern town boasts a crime rate of 117 per 1,000 residents.

3. Flint, Mich.
Between Detroit and Saginaw, Flint weighs in with a crime rate of 85 per 1,000 residents.

2. Camden, N.J.
Nestled next to Philadelphia, Camden has a population of almost 78,000, and 6,080 documented crimes in 2013.

1. East St. Louis, Ill.
At number one, East St. Louis is really more of a bad neighborhood with an exceptional amount of crime than a city unto itself. While the city of St. Louis has a population of over 318,000, East St. Louis is only about 27,000 residents, yet those resident commit about 117 offenses per 1,000 people.
