  • Select the prospect and approx duration of the showing.
  • Activate the Showing Monitor and the screen goes black (looks like it's off).

  • Unless a pin is used with 10 seconds, the app will send distress alerts automatically to your predetermined contacts.

A National Agent Safety Standard.

Never meet at the property, always verify a strange prospects photo ID in advance.

  • Many businesses require proof of identity

    The travel industry is a good example. To get on an airplane, rent a car or check into an hotel. All require to see your drivers license or passport.

  • It's already an industry standard

    ... in the apartment rental business. In order to tour an apartment complex, the representative will request your photo ID.

  • Since March 2014 Airbnb have used

    ... a very similar system to our screening process, to verify the identity of both landlords and tenants.

  • Never meet a strange prospect

    ... directly at the property under any circumstances. Always meet at your office first, or at a neutral location such as a local Starbucks.

  • Always verify a strange prospects photo ID

    As a preventative measure, verifying the identity of strange prospects in advance is just makes plain common sense.

  • A standard in the real estate industry

    Our industry deserves a National standard, similar to others that are already accepted by consumers. Let's make it so ...
