The Real Estate Background Directory and the accompanying Real Estate Background Checks are a cooperative effort between the National Notary Association and Backgrounds Online, created to help title companies and individuals in the real estate industry consolidate their background screening efforts to maximize efficiency for real estate professionals. Need more information? Contact us.

The Real Estate Background Directory offers individuals in the real estate industry a simple method of obtaining background screening, and reach a larger group of people with a directory listing. A directory listing lets an individual gain industry notoriety by listing their services, licenses, location and contact information, thus opening up a new business funnel and becoming easier for title companies, loan agencies, home buyers and individuals to hire them.

Background screening, pass/fail scoring, and directory appproval typically takes 3-5 business days to complete. However, due to the thorough nature of the screening process, turnaround times can vary.

Backgrounds Online obtains your approval to conduct your background screening, then performs a comprehensive review for potential criminal and driving offenses. Once complete, your screening results are compared to the SPW's scoring criteria to determine your pass status. Upon successfully passing the background check, you'll provide your desired directory listing information to gain further visibility in the real estate industry. You'll receive access to your background screening results, a certificate and a directory listing.
