GHAR Partners with FOREWARN to
Ensure Realtor Safety

11.28.2017

The Greater Hartford Association of Realtors (GHAR) has recently partnered with FOREWARN, LLC, a cogint company (NASDAQ: COGT), to provide advanced safety technology to GHAR’s membership and the rest of the Connecticut real estate industry.

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.

GHAR will provide FOREWARN services free of charge for the entirety of its 4,000+ members. Additionally, GHAR is the exclusive reseller of FOREWARN for non-GHAR members in the state of Connecticut.

“This partnership ensures another level of safety for Realtors in the field who meet with unknowns, in sometimes vacant areas, as a means of doing business. The technology FOREWARN provides will meet a significant need of our members and the real estate industry,” said Carl Lantz, President of GHAR. “We are excited to be the first association to comprehensively adopt this solution for the entirety of our membership and to be the exclusive agent of FOREWARN to the Connecticut real estate industry.”

“We created FOREWARN to fill a significant industry void as, until now, we believe real estate agents have had insufficient information to ensure their safety,” said James Reilly, President of FOREWARN. “In an increasingly digital world, 50% of potential buyers are coming in unverified, which poses safety risks for agents meeting at unsecure locations for the first time. We believe that FOREWARN is an essential resource for the real estate industry to ensure realtor safety and our partnership with GHAR will allow over 4,000 member agents to have better peace of mind as they do their job.”

To apply for FOREWARN, GHAR members should visit www.forewarn.com/ghar. Connecticut-based agencies and agents who are not GHAR members should visit www.forewarn.com/ct.
