Your Source for Practical Solutions
You and your agents have a lot on your plate, whether it’s listing properties, generating leads, managing clients and transactions or keeping up with the latest trends. To help you become more productive and informed, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) offers practical solutions for the publications, products and services you use every day.
“Our REALTOR Benefits® Program is extremely well-rounded,” says Kristin Stafford, managing director, Strategic Alliances. “We’re always enhancing the offerings by adding new partners and products so there’s something for everyone-whether you’re just starting up, a seasoned agent or an established broker. You save time and money by taking advantage of these unique and valuable offers.”
Your Realtor Benefits Program
The Realtor Benefits Program is your member benefits program. NAR has partnered with more than 30 companies-recognized as leaders in their respective industries-to provide you with value-added offers and significant savings on products and services you use on a daily basis. These partners cover a wide variety of areas, including marketing, technology, insurance and warranties, financial services, office solutions, education and travel.
-Marketing. Marketing partners can help you increase exposure for your listings, find leads, keep in touch with current customers and enhance your promotional campaign.
For example, eNeighborhoods’ marketing tools allow you to create high-impact marketing materials, presentations and reports, including professionally designed, ready-to-print buyer tours, neighborhood reports, CMAs, flyers and maps/aerials for any U.S. neighborhood.
Some program partners offer discounts on products that make great closing gifts. For example, Lowe’s offers a 5% discount on gift cards and a free marketing system that allows you to send customizable direct mail and e-mail that deliver valuable coupons, tips and ideas to your buyers and sellers.
-Technology. Technology certainly plays an important part in the life of brokers and agents. NAR members receive discounts on computers, peripherals and electronics from companies, such as Dell and Lenovo. Members can also save on virtual voicemail systems and online transaction management tools, such as RELAY®. This transaction management system allows real estate professionals to easily connect with buyers and sellers through a custom-branded transaction website.
-Insurance & Warranties. Partners in this category can help you with all of your insurance and warranty needs, whether you are looking for health and wellness options, Errors and Omissions, auto and home insurance or home warranties.
-Financial solutions. Distinguish yourself as a Realtor with the official Realtor Platinum Visa® or the new Realtor Business Visa from Chase. They come with no annual fee, a low APR, a 5% discount on all purchases at the REALTOR.org Store, and free Chase reward programs.
-Office solutions. Our partners can also help NAR members streamline office operations inexpensively and efficiently while exceeding customer expectations. Companies such as FedEx, Xerox and Pitney Bowes ensure that daily printing, mailing and shipping efforts are in good hands.
-Other solutions. Encourage your agents to distinguish themselves with certifications and designations, such as the e-PRO® technology certification program, ABR and SRES, by taking advantage of special pricing on educational tools. And, if you or your agents need a rental car for a business trip or family vacation, Avis, Budget and Hertz provide special rates and discounts to NAR members.
