NAR Sponsors FREE Safety Tool for All Realtors

Safety is a serious concern for Realtors®. 

NAR announced in November 2017 that a new safety tool is being made available to all Realtors® for free. Trust Stamp is online service that empowers Realtors® to protect themselves and their clients by helping them verify stranger identities prior to meeting.

 

Trust Stamp is an artificial intelligence (AI) company that focuses on biometrically created digital identities. Their goal is to replace user names and passwords (knowledge-based authentication) -- and eventually, even the social security number. For the real estate industry, the goal is to achieve identity and trust, so that agents can stay safe. 

How Does It Work?

Realtor® members can offer VIP Client Profie registration to prospective buyers and sellers prior to meeting with them. Trust Stamp allows Realtors® to send invitations to a recipient's email address or mobile phone number. Recipients achieve registration by completing a few authentication and identity steps, and receive a TrustScore in less than 2 minutes.  TrustScores can then be shared with others as a form of secure identity verification and trustworthiness token. For a quick video on what the process looks like from the recipient's end, click here

How Do Realtors® Sign Up

Realtors® can claim their free account by signing up with their NRDS number online at https://truststamp.net/re. All you need is your NRDS number, and set up takes seconds. 

How Do I Find My NRDS Number?

Look up your NRDS ID by using NAR's online lookup tools, or contact your local Realtor® Association.

Amanda, this does sound like a good tool available for agents to use to protect themselves.   However, it will  necessitate the development of a  good script to convey to prospective clients  without offending them when asked to register.  

Hope all is well in the LONE STAR STATE, Amanda!

The rental market presents us with the situation of seeing far more customers on a daily basis than the typical residential agent encounters.  Because of this, we are always looking for ways to protect our leasing agents.  We utilize a tracking and check-in app during the process; this looks like a feasible way to add additional protection on the front-end.

Is there an App for the service? Also, I was not able to register on my desktop since I could not take a selfie on my desktop, so it seems the registration is limited to mobile devices with photo capability. Getting a prospective client to take a selfie to finish the process might be challenging.
