Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
SentriLock LLC (SentriLock) announced today that the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® (CTAR) has entered into a multi-year contract extension for the REALTOR® Lockbox system from SentriLock and the National Association of REALTORS®.
CTAR serves approximately 4,000 REALTOR® members in and around Charleston, South Carolina. As part of the contract extension, CTAR will continue to provide its members with secure smart card technology and will be seamlessly integrating SentriLock's new NXT lockboxes into an existing inventory of Gen I and Gen II REALTOR® lockboxes.
CTAR introduced the REALTOR® Lockbox to the U.S. real estate industry in 2004 as the first Association to make the switch from a legacy electronic lockbox system to SentriLock.
Terry Ketchem, CEO of the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS®, Inc., said: "Back in 2004, the Charleston Trident Multiple Listing Service, Inc. took a calculated risk when we committed to be the first major installation of the SentriLock Lockbox system in the nation. We felt that SentriLock offered the right amount of technology at the right price. Some of the features our members have particularly liked are the convenience of the SentriCard®, the ability to track information about their lockboxes and showings online, and being able to generate contractor codes. We also love having the REALTOR® trademark on the boxes. We have found the system to be secure, cost effective, and easy to use. Recently, our MLS Board of Directors unanimously approved renewing our contract with SentriLock. "
James Reynolds, Director of REALTOR® Alliances at SentriLock, said, "The only thing more gratifying than CTAR's original vote of confidence in SentriLock is this affirmation that not only were we the right choice then, but that we have delivered on our promises of superior technology backed by outstanding customer service, along with unprecedented backward-compatibility of our newest technology with our original technology. We are proud of our relationship with CTAR, and we will continue to strive to deserve their business."
