Are You Using a Mechanical Lockbox, Putting Your Clients At Risk? - 02/15/11 04:01 PM
You hear the stories all the time – “The agent gave the lockbox code to his clients and they went to the property on their own.” Or “The client saw the code the agent typed in and came back later on their own.” Who do you blame in this case? Who is at fault? Sure, if an agent admits to giving the code out you know who, but what if everyone claims innocence? The fault tends to fall back on the listing agent. Also, once someone has the code, they can go back and access the box as many times as (46 comments)
"Valentine's Day is just another Hallmark holiday!" -- Not true! - 02/14/11 09:43 AM
A lot of people think Valentine's Day is just another 'Hallmark Holiday' made up by corporations to scam consumers into buying expensive gifts and over-priced flowers, but that's just not true! Trust me, I used to feel the same way, but then I did a little research. According to Wiki, Saint Valentine's Day has been celebrated since it was established by Pop Gelasius I in 500 AD. I'm pretty sure Hallmark wasn't around back then! "It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). (2 comments)

SentriLock Tip of the Week: Call Before Showing (CBS) Mode - 02/09/11 03:05 PM
*Please note that your Association or Board must have this feature of the SentriLock Access Control Management System enabled.* A call before showing code (CBS code) prevents Agents from accessing a lockbox with their SentriCards® until they call the listing Agent to obtain a CBS code. The CBS code is an additional code showing Agents need to enter into the lockbox before they can access the key compartment. A listing Agent may choose to use this code to ensure that he or she knows about any showings prior to the actual showing date and time. Prior to showing the listing, the (0 comments)

SentriLock Tip of the Week: Battery Change in a Gen I/II Lockbox - 02/02/11 12:46 PM
All SentriLock lockboxes run on batteries. For users who have our older Gen I/II lockboxes (they are the silver ones), I want to point you to our instructional video on changing your lockbox battery. Properly changing the battery will help to ensure that you do not damage the box. We make the batteries user-replaceable so that a timely trip to the board/association office is not needed.
