Realtors in North Carolina now have the option of gaining access to a service that will help them comply with state and federal Do Not Call laws.

The North Carolina Association of Realtors has formed a partnership with PossibleNOW, an Internet-based company offering Do Not Call compliance technologies, which allows the 29,000 Realtors in the state to access an online service called DNCQuickcheck. The service provides tools to allow Realtors to quickly identify consumers who do not want to be contacted.

“NCAR members can easily incorporate Do Not Call compliance into their daily marketing activities,” said Scott Frey, CEO of PossibleNOW. “DNCQuickcheck helps NCAR members eliminate the risk of violations and fines associated with state and federal Do Not Call laws. Prior to calling any expired listings, referrals, or FSBOs, NCAR members can use DNCQuickcheck to verify the Do Not Call status of the phone number.”

He added, “Do Not Call compliance goes well beyond simply checking phone numbers. Real estate professionals must ensure complete compliance including handling requests from consumers to be placed on the company’s Do Not Call list. They must also create documentation that can be audited to assist with an affirmative defense against any unwarranted claims.”

Anne Shropshire, marketing specialist for the North Carolina Association of Realtors, said, “Having PossibleNOW in our Partner Program gives our members access to an affordable, effective and easy-to-use Do Not Call compliance solution.”

In addition to verifying phone numbers and providing compliance reporting, DNCQuickcheck also offers: Online training for staff members to meet the federal requirement for Do Not Call training; a “Policy Wizard” to create and fulfill a company’s Do Not Call policy to consumers upon request; identification of pertinent “Established Business Relationship” rules associated with Do Not Call numbers; notification about changes to Do Not Call Regulations; and management of internal Do Not Call lists.

PossibleNOW has its headquarters in Duluth, Ga.
