Maine Listings becomes the first statewide MLS to make FOREWARN services available to its membership
BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 13, 2020– FOREWARN, LLC, a red violet company (NASDAQ: RDVT), and the leading provider of real-time information solutions for real estate agents, today announced that Maine Listings has contracted to make FOREWARN® services available to the 5,700+ agent members in the State of Maine 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, searching for criminal histories, and validating information provided by potential clients such as financial and asset information — using just a phone number. FOREWARN allows agents to properly and safely plan for showings with a higher level of confidence.
The FOREWARN services purchased by Maine Listings will be available to their entire membership at no additional cost to the individual user.
“Maine Listings is thrilled to be partnering with FOREWARN to provide this effective identity verification tool to our members,” said Cathy Libby, CEO of Maine Listings. “Our members’ safety is a top priority for Maine Listings, and we must bring agent safety to the forefront, emphasizing the need to be vigilant all year long. Plain and simple … times have changed, and we want our members to be safe and make well-informed decisions prior to that initial face-to-face engagement.”
“We are proud to announce our first statewide MLS to embrace FOREWARN to deliver proactive agent safety to its members. This is not only an important milestone for FOREWARN, but for the entire real estate industry,” said Josh Tilleson, Vice President of Sales for FOREWARN. “As we strive to ensure that this essential safety solution is in the hands of every member of the real estate community in the country, it is so rewarding to watch adoption progress from first individual agents, then brokerages, local REALTOR® Associations and multiple listing services, and now our first statewide MLS, Maine Listings.”
On February 19, 2020, existing Maine Listings members will receive specific instructions on how to move forward with activating their FOREWARN subscription.
