By NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Team
This is the perfect time to re-think and re-boot the technology you and your agents use every day—and NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Program is the first place to look to save big with members-only offers. Recently, NAR added another top-tier technology company to the Program.
“November is a huge month for new Program offerings and special, limited-time deals that increase already impressive savings, as well as a much-requested new partner,” says Bob Goldberg, NAR senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Business Development & Strategic Investments, Commercial Services, Professional Development and Conventions. “Brokers and their agents can lay the groundwork this month to start out 2013 with some state-of-the-art technology tools that will help take their business to the next level.”
Calling All Brokers: Sprint Is Now a Partner
In response to NAR member requests, NAR is delighted to announce the addition of Sprint to the REALTOR Benefits® Program. Ranked No. 1 in customer satisfaction for four years straight by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Sprint offers NAR members an 18-percent discount on select wireless monthly service plans, and a 20-percent discount on select accessories, including various Bluetooth accessories and car chargers.
“Every Sprint package includes unlimited data, which is especially beneficial to brokers and their agents,” explains Patti Siwicki, national account manager for Sprint. “If a REALTOR® is taking 360-degree shots of a property, and wants to upload those to their website as quickly as possible, they can do it all with their mobile device without worrying about data overage charges.”
You can also take advantage of a number of business solutions on your Sprint wireless device, such as NextMail®, which allows users to instantly broadcast a voicemail message to up to 50 other Sprint customers, and Workforce Locator, which allows you to track agent locations by their Sprint devices—a great way to support REALTOR® Safety recommendations!
To take advantage of Sprint’s exclusive pricing, simply have your NAR membership ID number or card with you when you order by phone at 1-866-639-8354; visit any Sprint retail store; or order online through www.REALTOR.org/Sprint. You will also need to provide the NAR discount code ASNAR_ZMB_ZZZ. You can add family members (or business colleagues) to your account, and current Sprint customers can convert to a money-saving NAR program free of charge when they sign a new, two-year contract or add a line to their account. Also, Sprint offers a Buyback Program, allowing new and current customers to turn in their used, eligible devices for recycling in return for a credit of up to $300.
