As REALTORS®, we subscribe to a strict code of ethics and hold respect for property as one of our most valued tenets. GCAAR has adopted the SentriLock Rules and Regulations, revised April 2021, to guide members' operations of and interaction with each other around lockboxes. The Board has also adopted the SentriLock Citation Policy and Schedule to allow for efficient and streamlined enforcement of the Rules and Regulations.
SentriLock has informed us that they have inventory shortages due to global chain supply issues. As a result, GCAAR is forced to suspend the discount Bluetooth lockbox trade in program. We will resume as soon as SentriLock has resolved their inventory issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.
GCAAR continues to seek out new ways to make our members’ jobs as REALTORS® easier. Last month, we announced a reciprocal agreement with Northern Virginia REALTORS® (NVAR) to allow full, shared access to our agents’ SentriLock lockboxes. And now, we’ve signed the same agreement with the Dulles Area Association of REALTORS® (DAAR)!
What does this mean?
DAAR’s SentriLock lockboxes are now set up to allow seamless access – enabling you to show your clients listings in the Dulles region more quickly, and allowing DAAR members to enjoy that same privilege in our area.
This reciprocal access streamlines the showing process. All GCAAR REALTORS® licensed in Virginia now have full access to NVAR and DAAR lockboxes.
Agents may only use lockboxes, the SentriLock mobile app and Smart Cards in states where they maintain a current license. Be sure to review GCAAR’s newly revised SentriLock Rules & Regulations to make sure you’re up to date.
SentriLock is going cardless on January 1, 2022, which means you'll want to start using the SentriKey™ Real Estate app NOW. GCAAR and SentriLock are offering you a discounted trade-in program for $99 + sales tax. Upgrade your non-Bluetooth SentriLock lockbox by trading it in for a current-model Bluetooth SentriLock lockbox. GCAAR will even recycle your old one!
GCAAR is making it easier than ever for you to show listings in northern Virginia. We have entered into a reciprocal agreement with the Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) to allow full, shared access to our agents’ SentriLock lockboxes.
What does this mean?
Remember: you can only use lockboxes, the SentriLock mobile app and SmartCards in states where you maintain a current license.
