It’s an age-old struggle: How can you provide above-and-beyond service for your clients without stretching yourself above and beyond your limits? The answer: REALTOR® Secure Transaction.

REALTOR® Secure Transaction (also known as RST) is a new member benefit that offers an array of free and discounted services to help you run a more efficient and secure business. Among other benefits, REALTOR® Secure Transaction gives you tools to …

  1. Manage and sign digital forms. Transactions (zipForm Edition) is free for C.A.R. members and let you access the full C.A.R. Standard form library.

  2. Create high-quality, immersive virtual tour experiences. As a C.A.R. member, you get special discounted pricing on EyeSpy360. All you need to do is upload your 360 photos of your listing, and within 24 hours, EyeSpy360 will send you a complete 360 tour, 3D model and a floor plan with measurements. You’ll even get two copies: one with your branding, and one without that you can put on the MLS.

  3. Easily reconnect with your client base to generate new listings. Through Homebot, you can set up personalized financial dashboards for each of your clients, educating them on their home’s value and ensuring you remain top of mind when it comes time to sell their home. Homebot is free for C.A.R. members for up to 25 clients.

  4. De-stress the inspection process. When defects or potential problems pop up on an inspection report, head to Porch for a report detailing price quotes for those repairs. You’ll receive the report within 48 hours — 24 hours if you select rush delivery — and you and your clients can use it to negotiate better prices on repairs. C.A.R. members get discounted pricing per report.

  5. Save time processing rental applications and screening applicants. You can use RentSpree to seamlessly gather rental application information from prospective tenants, including their completed C.A.R. Rental Application forms. You can also get a full credit report, criminal background report and national eviction report for each applicant. RentSpree is free to you and requires a $30 fee per applicant.

  6. Connect your clients with moving services. Through Updater, which is free for C.A.R. members, you can brand and launch your own moving app. Your clients can use your app to find movers, forward their mail, find home insurance and much more — all while keeping your branding front and center.

  7. Get quick answers to all your transaction questions. Head to the RST’s Transaction Tips & Training section for a searchable database of resources to help you master every stage of the transaction.
