Fraud Alert: Email Scam Not from NAR Leaders

Some NAR members have received a fraudulent email impersonating National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) leadership coming from "chairmanpress1@gmail.com" impersonating "Leslie Rouda Smith," requesting some service assistance. This email is not from NAR leadership. If you receive it, please do not click on any links or provide any personal information.

Beware of an email that purports to come from NAR leadership but originates from an unknown email address. NAR has reported this email scam to the proper authorities and is blocking it from its internal networks. NAR unfortunately does not have the control or ability to stop external emails or content.

Always be vigilant in protecting your personal information. If you receive requests for any personal information via phone or text originating from any phone number not known to you, do not respond. If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of a communication or request from NAR, please hang up and contact the member support team directly by dialing 800-874-6500, or contact NAR via live chat or email.

Please Use New Lockbox Agreements

Need a Supra eKEY? Please make sure to submit the most up to date lockbox agreements. These can always be found on our lockbox website: https://ranw.org/mls/supra-lockbox-system/.

Reciprocal Key Access for South Central WI MLS and Central WI MLS

RANW MLS has a reciprocal key agreement with Central WI MLS and South Central Wisconsin MLS (includes Associations/MLSs of Dodge County and Rock Green). REALTOR® members of the RANW MLS wanting to show properties in those areas need to call the RANW MLS office at 920-739-9108 or aschilling@ranwor.org or khubers@ranw.org to request the reciprocal key access. Once Central or South Central has authorized access, the RANW MLS member will be notified. Members from the eligible MLSs may also request Reciprocal Key Use from RANW MLS to show your properties by contacting your board.

Plan ahead if possible, as this may take more than one day. Once you have the key activated, the reciprocal stays in place with your active eKEY. Use this professional tool to expand your business!
If you have a request from a non-Supra area agent, see info to obtain a one-day code HERE!

Supra Lockbox Reminder

Please make sure to always store keys in the correct area of the lockbox key container (see below images). If the lockbox is jammed, the agent/company responsible may be fined for the damaged equipment.
