As several real-life horror stories have shown, Realtors can put themselves in harm’s way if they show homes to strangers. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has taken another step toward addressing the problem by backing a startup, Trust Stamp, that provides identity verification to agents meeting new clients or strangers.
- The startup combines driver’s license analysis and "proof-of-liveness photographic identification techniques" with social media data and public records, including criminal and sex offender records, to verify a person's identity and create a "trustworthiness score."
