VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR SUPRA KEY PRIVILEGES –
BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIRED BEFORE SEPT 30!
Thank you for your Affiliate membership and your support of the St. Charles REALTORS®!
As an Affiliate member, one of the benefits you currently utilize is the electronic key box system, accessed via your SUPRA key. You may be aware that this is organized as a cooperative among six REALTOR® associations in the St. Louis Region. Recently, the members of the cooperative came together to update the rules for the administration of this program. These rules were subsequently approved by each of the respective boards of directors. I would highly encourage you review these rules as non-compliance could result in fines and or loss of system access. You can access these rules here.
A major change to these rules is the added requirement for all Affiliate users who are not licensed in the state in which they work to undergo and pass a criminal background check in order to be able to utilize the system. The background check will be conducted by Griffin Personnel Group, and this requirement will take effect September 1, 2020. All existing users will have a 30-day window in which to complete the background check. Failure to complete the required check or failure to pass the background check will result in the suspension and/or termination of your service. We have negotiated with Griffin Personnel Group a discounted rate of $75 for existing users.
Once you have submitted your $75 payment to the Association, there will be a two-day period of time while Griffin Personnel Group is notified of your payment and then you will need to submit two separate background check authorization forms directly to Griffin Personnel Group. You can access the first form here and the second form here. Upon processing these forms, you will receive an email from Griffin Personnel Group advising you of the next step.

To order your background check:
Go to Online Member Portal (https://stcharlesrealtorsportal.ramcoams.net/Sales/Catalog/ProductSearch.aspx?selmenid=men8) and log in if you know your credentials (username is your NRDS number). If you do not know your password, skip the login and click on the box to the right that says “New member? Forgot your password, etc.” to reset your password.
Click on Shop from the top menu bar.
On the right side, use the Search bar and type in background. When the Background Check Fee item comes up, click on Add to Cart. Follow the prompts to pay and check out.
After your payment is processed by Association staff, you will be emailed the two Release forms. Please complete the forms and return to Griffin Personnel Group (info at the bottom of the form). Do NOT send to the Association. Thank you!
