By NAR's REALTOR Benefits® Team
You may already know that the REALTOR Benefits® Program is your official member benefits resource from the National Association of Realtors®. But did you know that the program is designed with REALTORS® in mind, bringing you discounts and unique offers on products and services to help brokers and their agents gain a competitive edge, save time and money, and grow your business?
In fact, recent data shows that NAR members are taking advantage of the REALTOR Benefits® Program. In 2013 alone, more than 800,000 NAR members took advantage of at least one offer and saved more than $81 million.
“This is an extremely beneficial program for our members,” says Bob Goldberg, NAR senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Business Development & Strategic Investments, Professional Development and Conventions. “It’s clear that members who take advantage of these NAR offers are clearly saving more than the cost of their NAR membership. The Chrysler program alone can save members more than $800. That’s equal to the value of six years of NAR membership dues.”
Partners Selected to Meet Your Needs
More than 30 industry-leading companies are part of the program. And, since each company and its offerings are carefully selected by NAR, you can be assured they understand the unique needs of real estate professionals and are committed to your success.
