are a Greater Lakes Association of Realtors member and use Sentrilock lockboxes, this field is for you.
When entering a new listing, please enter the Sentrilock Lockbox serial number that will be used on this listing. This will accomplish two things:
- Allow Sentrilock to connect the lockbox serial number to the address and agent in the Sentrilock system.
- Facilitate an important reporting and auditing process for your Association.

- A data feed direct to Sentrilock for connecting the lockbox.
- Data to the Greater Lakes Association for reports.
We are pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of the Greater Lakes Association of REALTORS® (GLAR) voted to contract with NorthstarMLS as their Association’s MLS provider. The Greater Lakes Association primarily covers an area in central Minnesota centered in Brainerd and including Aitkin, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Mille Lacs, Morrison, and Todd counties. Click here to see a map of theses counties and the surrounding area.
All Greater Lakes Association’s listings, both Active and off market, will be on NorthstarMLS starting April 1st. This will result in many benefits for real estate professionals and their clients in both the Greater Lakes Association and NorthstarMLS service areas which going forward will be, effectively, the same.
All NorthstarMLS and GLAR users will benefit from more effective cooperation facilitated through belonging to one MLS and elimination of the problems and expense for Realtors in the state caused by arbitrary and overlapping MLS jurisdictions. Additionally, GLAR members will benefit from a powerful and state-of-the-art MLS system (Matrix), enhanced (and wider area coverage) public tax records, Realist, Down Payment Resource, group copyright protection, data standardization tools, List Assist automated quality control and compliance administration, SafeMLS security, continued use of BookAShowing and Instanet forms, and other core services.
