Before you tour with one of our agents, we ask that you verify your identity for the safety of our agents, and to protect you from identity theft. It’s a very quick process that we try our best to make as convenient as possible!
Step 1) log in to Redfin.com and click on your name in the right-hand corner of the screen. You should see a drop-down menu appear with the option “account”
Step 2) Check your ID verification status at the bottom of the screen. If it reads “Not Yet Verified” then click on “verify my ID”.
Step 3) You’ll be asked to fill out your first and last name, address, and date of birth.
Step 4) Next up, you will see 2 questions. To protect your privacy we use IDology, a third-party ID verification service that is safe, trustworthy, and non-intrusive. Please know that we never keep or share your information, it is completely private.
The questions on the screen are questions you should be able to answer very easily, but that would probably trip up an impostor. By answering these questions correctly, you'll verify that you are who you say you are.
Step 5) If you answer the questions correctly and once your ID is confirmed by the local Redfin team, you will receive a confirmation email about your tour and you will be ready to go!
If not, you will see this screen:
If you are not able to verify your ID online, no worries, schedule your tour and the local Redfin team will follow up with further instructions.
A Redfin agent may also text you requesting a Driver's License to confirm your identity before a tour.
