South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association and Pikes Peak REALTOR® Services Corp. Announce SentriLock Full Reciprocity Agreement
LITTLETON, CO – OCTOBER 10, 2018 – The South Metro Denver REALTOR® Association (SMDRA) in a joint statement with Pikes REALTOR® Services Corp. (RSC) announced a reciprocity agreement for SentriLock Services. SMDRA and RSC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® (PPAR) are excited to collaborate between the two organizations to continue to enhance services provided to their members.
The full reciprocity agreement allows REALTORS® who subscribe to the SentriLock lockbox service with either SMDRA or RSC to have seamless lockbox services. The ability to share SentriLock access creates efficiencies for real estate professionals representing buyers or sellers. Subscribers of either service can use their SentriCard service to access a home. No need to issue a 1-Day Code or SentriConnect access for anyone subscribing to either service. This will save both time and money for the subscribers servicing multiple areas. Amy Reid, CEO of PPAR said, “We are excited to work together. It is a natural fit; both Associations offer the SentriLock service, so it is an easy collaboration. Working together as REALTORS® and improving the services we provide to our members is our top priority.” Melissa Maldonado, CEO of SMDRA, added, “Lockboxes provide convenience to brokers, but additional security for the sellers. It is of utmost importance to enhance the ease of services provided but maintain our members’ and their clients’ security.” While the use of electronic lockboxes is not mandatory SMDRA, the association’s Board of Directors and members, see the value in using this technology and have given away over 2,000 lockboxes in 2018 to SMDRA members and brokerages. This reciprocity agreement between RSC and SMDRA serves nearly 8,000 REALTORS®. The expanded service should be up and running for subscribers by early November 2018.
