WASHINGTON (October 5, 2012) – When working with a real estate professional, home buyers and sellers count on their agent to be accessible and easy to reach any time of day. The National Association of Realtors® is making this even easier for its members through a new collaboration with Sprint through the REALTOR Benefits® Program, which provides members with significant savings on wireless phone service plans.
Through the new Sprint discount program, NAR members save 18 percent on select wireless monthly service plans and 20 percent on select accessories for use with wireless handsets and devices. These discounts are available to all Realtors®, whether they are new or existing Sprint customers.
“Realtors® are at the heart of the deal,” said NAR President Moe Veissi, broker-owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami. “Real estate is a 24/7 business and clients depend on us to be accessible and available. NAR recognized the need for affordable and reliable cell phone service plans, and this exciting program with Sprint is a tremendous benefit for members. As an innovative company, Sprint can provide Realtors® with what they need most in their wireless communication needs. This new benefit will not only improve client relations, but also can help Realtors® grow their business.”
Under the program, members may add additional phone lines to their account and the discount will apply to eligible rate plans as long as the lines are attached to the NAR member’s account. Another added benefit is Sprint’s current Buyback Program, which provides a credit of up to $300 on a Sprint account in exchange for old eligible devices, including those from other carriers, to be reused or recycled. Sprint services are available to members based in the continental U.S., Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“Sprint is making it easier for Realtors® to get the right cell phone on the right service plan at a great price,” said Kimberly Green-Kerr, regional vice president-Sprint. “We are pleased to work with NAR to provide members with some exciting discounts. In addition, we offer a suite of wireless solutions that can help Realtors®, including unlimited data on smartphones, a robust messaging platform and location-based services for navigation and agent safety.”
To obtain these offers members can order via phone, online, or in a Sprint retail store. For full details on how to obtain these offers visit www.realtor.org/Sprint.
