BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FOREWARN, LLC, a cogint company (NASDAQ: COGT), and the leading provider of real-time information solutions for real estate agents, today announced a partnership with the Greater Hartford Association of Realtors (GHAR) to bring FOREWARN™ to GHAR’s 4,000+ members and the rest of 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”
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 has purchased FOREWARN services for the entirety of its 4,000+ members. Additionally, FOREWARN has named GHAR as the exclusive reseller of FOREWARN for non-GHAR members in the state of Connecticut.
“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.”
“We are thrilled that FOREWARN has brought this innovative solution to market to meet a significant need of 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.”
