FOREWARN Launches Real-Time Solution to Enable Real Estate Agent Safety

FOREWARN™, a real-time information solution for real estate agents has launched today, taking the guesswork out of interactions with potential clients.

Powered by cogint (COGT), FOREWARN capitalizes on cogint’s enduring track record providing information and risk management solutions, massive data repository, and proprietary algorithms to efficiently provide real estate agents with the ability to instantaneously glean insights on potential clients ahead of on-site property showings.

Real estate agent safety is a perpetual and growing concern in an increasingly digital world where agents are posting a majority of their listings on public websites. Digital marketing of real estate generates unverified buyers, which poses safety risks for real estate professionals meeting at unsecure locations for the first time. Using FOREWARN, agents are able to identify an overwhelming majority of consumers in seconds, using just a phone number or name.

The solution, available both online and through a mobile application, 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.

“After several years at Zillow, I joined FOREWARN because I saw a tremendous opportunity to deliver an innovative solution that addresses a serious and growing threat within the real estate industry,” said Joshua Tilleson, VP Business Development at FOREWARN. “Real estate agents have the right to know who they are doing business with and, in my view, this is an essential solution for not only individual agents but also for agencies and brokers to ensure the safety of their team.”

FOREWARN offers unlimited use of its solution to agencies and individual agents based on a monthly subscription of as little as $4.00 per month, per agent, for large agencies.
