Every homebuyer feels a mix of emotions—excitement for sure—once the sale closes and the keys are theirs. But, as every REALTOR® knows, a client’s initial rush hits reality when they consider the logistics ahead—packing, announcements to family and friends, filing a change of address, and more.
Often at the top of a client’s to-do list is signing up for electricity service. Perhaps next comes a look into a home security company. And then a review of big appliances that may need attention, such as an older HVAC system.
What if you could help your clients cover all these bases with just one company? And what if that company had a referral program to help you help your customers?
NRG believes this is something we should and can do for you and your clients. If you haven’t already heard of NRG, we are a Fortune 200 company with a family of retail electricity brands, including Reliant in Texas and NRG Home in the East, making us the nation’s largest independent electricity retailer. Our customers trust us as the experts to power them at home, at work and on the go. We also give back to the communities where we live and work, supporting charitable and volunteer initiatives to help those in need.
We offer a wide variety of electricity plans to fit every budget and lifestyle, in addition to portable power products to keep our customers going while away from outlets. The insights and choices NRG provides on how to manage, use and even make your own energy make us the company people can count on.
Along with our core business of retail electricity, we have REALTOR®-focused programs to help you get your clients situated in their new abode, some of which even come with incentives for you.
At the top of the list is our Referral Rewards for REALTORS® program. For every new homeowner a REALTOR® refers to Reliant in Texas or to NRG Home in Pennsylvania, they can earn reward points redeemable for products and services from hundreds of well-known brands found in our award catalog. We also offer a concierge service to guide your clients through the process of selecting the electricity plan that not only fits their lifestyle, but provides special home electricity rates. REALTORS® can find more details at reliant.com/refer in Texas and nrghomepower.com/realtor in Pennsylvania, and we have dozens of concierges ready to assist you along the way.
In Texas, we provide seamless support across a suite of offerings. Homeowners in this area face unpredictable weather, so NRG Home Services has affordable options for home backup generators to keep power flowing. Texans can also outfit their homes with Security by Reliant, around-the-clock protection they can control from their mobile devices. In addition, NRG Home Services also offers the NRG Home Warranty + Maintenance Plan to protect against unexpected repairs or appliance breakdowns. REALTORS® also have a dedicated NRG Account Executive who can help get their clients covered for all major home systems.
These are just some of the ways NRG can enhance REALTOR®/ client relationships and help you get the next sale, because just like you and your business, we always have the customer in mind.
