Do you know your CBS codes?

Recently, many affiliate members have telephoned asking for Call Before Showing codes to lockboxes. These codes are required for access for all affiliate members including home inspectors, radon specialists, pest control services, and more.

Due to the rules and regulations governing the eKey system, Columbus REALTORS® staff may not provide them with the requested CBS codes. Only the listing agents who own the lockboxes can provide affiliate members with these codes.

When scheduling a home inspection or other similar service, please make sure that you provide the affiliate members with the correct CBS code to your lockboxes so that they do not find themselves locked out of the property. If you are unsure of your CBS code, please call me and I can provide you with the codes to one or all of your lockboxes.

In addition, you can find the CBS code to your lockboxes under the inventory screen of your eKey phone application. Simply click on the lockbox serial number and then hit “edit” at the bottom of the screen. Temporarily switch on “require CBS code” to see your lockbox’s CBS code. Then be sure to switch off “require CBS code” after that.

If you have any questions about this system or require the CBS codes to your lockboxes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
