New REALTOR Benefits® Partners Offer Savings, Resources for Members

Learn how these partners can help you navigate the world of health insurance and make sure you have a secure e-mail platform for your business.

For entrepreneurs, including many real estate professionals, finding quality, affordable health insurance can be a daunting task—looming even larger with the implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act next year, which mandates that most Americans must have medical coverage or pay a penalty.

The REALTORS® Insurance Marketplace can help: It’s a one-stop insurance shopping site designed to help NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® members navigate the world of health insurance and wellness products. NAR partnered with SASid (Smart And Simple insurance development) to create this easy-to-use Web site, where members can research options, compare plans, obtain quotes, and purchase coverage directly online.

Products include existing plans, such as REALTORS® Core Health Insurance, REALTORS® Dental Insurance, and Drug Card America. The Marketplace also highlights two new insurance offerings: a major medical health insurance exchange for members featuring HMOs, PPOs, and high-deductible (catastrophic) plans, and short-term insurance, which is a temporary major medical policy lasting 30 days to 6 months. Learn more online or by calling 1-877-267-3752.

Sure, free e-mail accounts such as Gmail and Yahoo are great for personal use, but real estate practitioners can benefit from a professional e-mail platform for safe and secure messaging. NAR has partnered with Rackspace to offer a suite of professionally hosted e-mail services, backed by live technical support 24 hours a day. Build your brand by using your own domain for a more professional appearance.

Products include Microsoft Exchange package, Rackspace E-mail, Rackspace Archiving, and Rackspace SharePoint®. Rackspace services are available for individual agents or for brokers to purchase for their entire office. As a new Realtor Benefits® Partner, Rackspace offers NAR members a 10 percent discount off monthly service rates (bulk service rates are also available). Get more details here.
