A buyer’s agent has just used her smartphone to open the electronic lockbox on a for-sale home when her client starts firing off questions: “Has this home had any price changes recently? How many square feet does it have? Is it in a flood zone?” If that agent is a member of the National Association of Realtors, it is now easier to answer those questions in real time.
- Realtors Property Resource (RPR) and SentriLock have integrated their mobile apps, allowing agents to immediately look up property details when they access a home's lockbox.
- RPR and SentriLock are wholly-owned, for-profit subsidiaries of the National Association of Realtors. SentriLock is the trade group's official lockbox provider and has nearly 1 million lockboxes in use.
- The integration is only available to RPR Mobile users, who must be members of NAR. It is not available to consumers or non-Realtor real estate professionals.
