November 1, 2012

Mobile communication is an essential tool for on-the-go real estate professionals. That’s why the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® has teamed up with Sprint to offer discounts to NAR members on mobile phone service and accessories. As part of the REALTOR Benefits® Program, REALTORS® save 18 percent on select wireless monthly service plans and 20 percent on select accessories for use with wireless handsets and devices.

Sprint recognizes that mobility plays a key role in real estate business success. The company’s full spectrum of mobile solutions enables you to stay ahead of the competition, increase customer satisfaction, and enhance productivity. Thanks to this new partnership, REALTORS® will have access to excellent value, the latest technology, a nationwide 3G network, and a blazing-fast 4G network where ­available.

All NAR members with a valid NRDS number can take advantage of this offer, and additional phone lines may be added to a member’s account. The discount will apply to eligible plans as long as the additional lines are attached to the NAR member’s account. NAR members who are existing Sprint customers can convert to the discount program free of charge when they sign a new two-year service contract or add an additional line to their existing Sprint account. Visit a Sprint retail store and provide your NAR membership card, as well as the NAR discount code ASNAR_ZMB_ZZZ. You may also speak to a Sprint representative at 866-639-8354. Sprint services are available to members based in the continental United States, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

If you’re thinking of switching phones, Sprint’s  buyback program provides a credit of up to $300 on your Sprint account in exchange for your old eligible devices—including those from other carriers. Learn more about the buyback at For complete details on the discount program, visit

RPR Launches Nationwide

Getting your listing sold in 11 days with five offers sounds like a dream. But that’s exactly what Cathy Werner, broker-owner of RE/MAX American Dream in Baltimore, experienced. Werner landed a luxury listing after presenting a 46-page seller report that took less than 10 minutes to complete. How’d she do it? Three words: REALTORS Property Resource®.

On Nov. 1, RPR became available to all REALTORS® across the country. There’s no fee: The site is supported by your NAR dues. Through it, you get access to public real estate data for 147 million properties nationwide. The database includes sales history, tax assessments, mortgage and lien data, flood maps, and neighborhood and school district boundaries, as well as foreclosure information.

If your multiple listing service is a member of RPR, your MLS/CIE-provided information will be merged with the public data, allowing you to easily produce analytical reports related to clients’ specific property—including the REALTOR Valuation Model® that helped Werner land her listing. To date, 440 of the nation’s 900 MLSs have partnered with RPR.

Today, consumers arm themselves with market research before contacting an agent, says RPR CEO Dale Ross. “If REALTORS® want to continue to have a value proposition, they need to know more than their customers. RPR can help with that.” Try RPR today at To see how other REALTORS® are successfully using RPR, visit
