WEST CHESTER, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SentriLock, a leading provider of electronic lockbox solutions, today announced it has signed Dayton REALTORS® to a multi-year agreement as its exclusive provider of lockbox technology. This agreement will provide Dayton REALTORS® 2,800 members and estimated 20,000 annual property listings with access to SentriLock’s innovative electronic lockbox solutions. In addition to providing Dayton REALTORS® with a more secure and technology-friendly option to secure properties, the new system will provide more in-depth insights into market data and trends throughout the Miami Valley.
“At Dayton REALTORS®, we want to provide our members and their clients with the most up-to-date technology to facilitate the home buying and selling process,” said Bob Morrison, president, Dayton REALTORS®. “Updating our lockbox technology to SentriLock’s solutions will allow for greater control and access to properties, while also improving the safety and security of our agents and the properties they represent.”
Starting in April, homeowners and buyers throughout the greater Dayton, Ohio, region will begin to see their current mechanical lockbox systems updated with SentriLock’s mobile-enabled lockbox solutions. Equipped with Bluetooth® technology, the units connect to smartphones and tablets, which provides more flexible and secure management of active properties. The technology eliminates insecure combination access codes.
“Gone are the days of mechanical lockbox systems that can be riddled with issues and inefficiencies,” said Scott Fisher, CEO, SentriLock. “We’re thrilled to team up with Dayton REALTORS® to provide yet another benefit to its growing membership.”
Through SentriLock’s mobile app, agents receive instant notifications when lockboxes are opened and closed for a showing, enabling them to identify the amount of time potential buyers are spending in the home, along with trends over a period of time. This technology enhances the level of insights and service they are able to provide to their clients during the home buying and selling process.
Beyond its capabilities and proven performance, Dayton REALTORS® selected SentriLock for its superior customer service and proximity to the Dayton market.
“With headquarters so close to the Dayton-area market, signing with SentriLock not only made good business sense, but also supports our commitment to the local economy,” added Andrew Sims, CEO, Dayton REALTORS®. “Its top-rated customer service team also gives us peace of mind that our members will be taken care of throughout the transition process and beyond.”
Members will have the ability to select from several introductory sessions that will provide them with a comprehensive overview of the features and capabilities of the new electronic lockbox technology. Field training will be conducted for agents who require additional training.
“A lot of our employees live in the greater Miami Valley, so knowing our technology is protecting their homes and property is a win for both organizations,” said Scott Richardson, Chief Operating Officer, SentriLock. “We look forward to a longstanding relationship with Dayton REALTORS® and its membership.”
