The SentriLock system, including SentriKey and lockbox services, are administered through the Mid-Atlantic Realty Services, Inc. (MARS). The MARS service region consists of Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County, and Howard County. It takes approximately two (2) business days after you have paid your dues to GBBR membership to become eligible for a SentriLock account.
SentriLock fees are prorated on a quarterly basis the first year you become eligible for a SentriLock account. Upon activation of your SentriLock account the cost will be the prorated amount, plus the $50.00 application fee. The annual fee is $165.00 and will renew on March 4 every year. (This amount can fluctuate and is not guaranteed).
Your SentriKey access must be obtained from your primary association. The SentriLock system is used in all Maryland counties except for Cecil County, and reciprocity must be obtained through MARS to use the card in Wicomico, Somerset, and Worcester counties.
Here’s how to obtain a SentriKey Access:
Email your completed application to Cheryl Alexander, GBBR Administrator of Professional Standards; be certain to include your name and NRDS number in the subject line. SentriLock information, forms, and training can be found in the GBBR Library. Remember, to be eligible to obtain a SentriKey Access you must have paid GBBR dues in full and be a member in good standing.
Please remember that if you do not complete the new member orientation and Ethics & Predatory Lending course requirements within 90 days of the date the GBBR acceptance notification email was sent, your SentriLock services will be suspended until both requirements have been completed.
Other SentriLock information:
Lockboxes can be purchased from GBBR during business hours. You must have a SentriKey Access to take ownership of the SentriLock lockbox. New lockboxes are available at GBBR for $130.00 including taxes. Please remember that we cannot accept cash for lockbox purchases.
