What is Locktoberfest?  

We know that a lot of agents have lockboxes that are unused and possibly unneeded.  This is a great opportunity for CVR MLS to reconcile our lockbox inventory and for agents to return lockboxes to win some great prizes, including the chance to win your 2022 CVR MLS fees paid.  

When is LocktoberFest?  

Locktoberfest begins Monday, October 4th and runs through Friday, October 29th  

Where do I drop off my lockboxes? 

You can drop off your lockboxes at either the RAR Office in Richmond or the CVR MLS satellite office at SVAR in Colonial Heights.   

What exactly are these prizes?   

We will be drawing weekly for some great prizes like gift cards to Drive Shack, Shyndigz, Terrants, The Boathouse, as well as gift certificates for the REALTOR store and prizes from our sponsors.  One lucky agent will win the grand prize – their 2022 MLS fees paid.  

How do I participate?  

Just bring back your lockboxes to a location mentioned above.  Each lockbox counts as an entry. Ex: 5 LBs = 5 Entries to win 

Why are you running Locktoberfest?   

We know that there are many lockboxes assigned to agents in the CVR MLS jurisdiction that are not being used.  We want to ensure that all lockboxes are properly maintained and accounted for.  We are kicking off this annual event to encourage agents to maintain a reasonable lockbox inventory and provide an annual reminder to bring back any unused lockboxes.   

Check your inventory: 

  • You can see your inventory by using the SentriKeyapp and clicking on the hamburger menu in the top left and checking “My Lockboxes.”  
  • You can also use the SentriLocktile on your MLS dashboard.  Once logged in, click in the “My Lockboxes”  

A few compliance tips: 

  • Please do not remove lockboxes from active or pending listings.  This event is meant for agents to bring back extra lockboxes not currently being used in their regular course of business. 
  • Please remember that under the MLS rules, you must pick up your lockbox within 48 hours of a closing, release or expiration.  

Do you have extra SentriLock lockboxes collecting dust? Bring those extra boxes to RAR during the month of October for an opportunity to enter a raffle and win some great prizes including:

  • All of your MLS fees paid for 2022
  • REALTOR® Store Gift Cards
  • Prizes from our Sponsors
  • Gift cards and much more

There will be a drawing every week so there are plenty of opportunities to win some great prizes. All you need to do to enter the raffle is bring us your extra lockboxes. We will start collecting lockboxes Monday through Friday beginning October 4 from 8:30AM-5PM at RAR.
