Colorado-based agency purchases FOREWARN services to promote proactive agent safety
BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apr. 20, 2018– FOREWARN, LLC, a red violet company (NASDAQ: RDVT), and the leading provider of real-time information solutions for real estate agents, today announced that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties (BHHS Colorado Properties) has secured FOREWARN™ for all 100+ of its affiliated agents in an effort to promote proactive real estate agent safety.
Available both online and through a mobile application, FOREWARN analyzes billions of data points and provides users with the ability to mitigate risks by verifying identity using just a phone number, searching for criminal histories, and validating information provided by potential clients such as financial and asset information. FOREWARN allows agents to properly and safely plan for showings with a higher level of confidence.
“Whether at the association, agency, or individual agent level, it’s imperative that the real estate industry addresses the issue of agent safety,” said James Reilly, President of FOREWARN. “BHHS Colorado Properties has clearly made safety a priority and we’re pleased to have been selected to support their efforts.”
The FOREWARN services purchased by BHHS Colorado Properties will be available at no cost to affiliated agents.
“While there are sound, common sense practices that agents can use to mitigate risk, the ability to verify information on a prospective buyer before entering into a potentially dangerous situation was too important for us not to provide to our agents,” said Michael Slevin, President, of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Colorado Properties. “Implementing FOREWARN across our agency furthers our commitment to putting safety first and being a first-mover in terms of levering technology to the benefit of our agents.”
Existing BHHS Colorado Properties agents will receive specific instructions on how to move forward with activating their FOREWARN subscription via email.
