Fri, Jul 25 2014

Thank you to everyone who came out and/or supported KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation’s “Day at the Races” 2014!  The event was a huge success, and it could not have been a more beautiful day at Arlington Park.  The event sold out, raising more than $4000 for organizations like Sunshine Kids and Habitat for Humanity.   Congratulations to the Mag Mile team, Grand Champions of our “Bet On The Foundation” contest.   The “Best Hat” award went to Cindy Sullivan from our Glen Ellyn office.  “Best Dressed” went to Lyle Harlow of our Lincoln Park | Clybourn office.  Plus, a “Hats Off” award goes to the entire Schaumburg team for such creative group hats!  Thanks again to all, we’re already looking forward to next year!  To see photos of all the festivities, please click here!

CreditApp.Info FAQs

What is CreditApp.Info?
CreditApp.Info is a new BHHS KoenigRubloff Realty Group service that provides a convenient, secure, online lease application for your landlord’s rental applicants. It combines the lease application and credit check application into one, easy-to-use, online form.

How does it work?
You provide the CreditApp.Info link to the applicant, and the applicant goes online to fill out and pay for the application. You visit your new CreditAppLogin.Info agent portal and share the complete application and other related documents with your landlord.

What does the application include?
The application combines both the lease application and the credit check. Landlords can choose one of two applications: 1. Rental Credit Profile ($50), which includes a credit report with FICO score, nationwide eviction search, employment verification and landlord verification; or 2. Rental Credit Profile with Background Check ($70), which includes all of the items in the basic package plus a nationwide criminal record search and a national registered sex offender search. There is also a third application specifically for co-signers ($35), which is a streamlined version of the Rental Credit Profile.

When can I use CreditApp.Info?
The new program will be released to KoenigRubloff offices over the next two weeks. This week it will be released to the city offices and next week we will roll it out to all suburban offices. During your office’s designated week, watch your inbox for an email from Red Ridge Verification Services; this important email will include your credit app portal login information and will be your cue that you may begin using the new CreditApp.Info service. Upon your release date please transition to the new CreditApp.Info program and discontinue use of the Acranet service. Once all offices have transitioned to CreditApp.Info, the Acranet program will be discontinued and the Acranet forms will be removed from Cabernet Corner.

What credit service do I use until my office release date?
Continue to use the Acranet credit application process until then. Once all offices have transitioned to the new CreditApp.Info program, the Acranet program will be discontinued and all Acranet materials will be removed from Cabernet Corner.

Where can I find more information on CreditApp.Info?
A new page has been added to Cabernet Corner (Agent Tools > Lease & Credit Application). From here you can access the CreditApp.Info URL, the agent portal quick link, a training video, user guide and more information.

What should I do while waiting to use CreditApp.Info?
Watch the CreditApp.Info training video and review the User Guide; both resources are available on the KRG Training Video Library and the new Cabernet Corner Lease & Credit Application page. The User Guide is also available at Cabernet Corner > Online Forms > Agent Training.

Who do I contact if I have questions?
For help with the new Lease & Credit Application contact PAM@KoenigRubloff.com.
