The older genration Sentrilock boxes are no longer under warranty! This means that if the lockbox is defective you will not receive a replacement lockbox. If you encounter any locksmith fees associated with the box, you will be responsible for the cost.

Dear Tennessee REALTOR®,
A number of members have reported receiving an email today from Leon Dickson, Sr., via We Transfer, with a prompt to "Get your files". (See screenshot below.) If you receive this, please DELETE it and DO NOT RESPOND. This is a fake/hack/spam message and is not a legitimate request.
EMTAR will be implementing a new Association Database Management platform at the end of this month. Because of this launch, payment of services (e.g. membership applications, education, luncheons, signs, etc.) will be non-accessible from May 30th - June 4th. The EMTAR Office will still be open, however, payment processing will not be available.
We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
