NAR and FedEx Help Realtors® Do More for Less

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) - The National Association of Realtors® recently announced an expansion of its FedEx Advantage® savings program for Realtors® to include FedEx Office services. Through the REALTOR Benefits® Program, NAR members can now register for two FedEx discount programs aimed at helping Realtors® as well as their clients.

As a result of a long-standing alliance between NAR and FedEx, NAR member savings now extend beyond FedEx shipping solutions and include a variety of FedEx Office services such as copying and digital printing, signs and graphics, and direct mail. NAR members can receive up to a 20 percent discount on black-and-white and color printing for brochures, flyers, sell sheets, newsletters, postcards and more.

"NAR's alliance with FedEx has been tremendously successful over the years and has provided Realtors® with benefits they use to help consumers, whether they are buyers, sellers or investors," said Bob Goldberg, senior vice president of Marketing and Business Development, Commercial Services and Business Specialties. "FedEx understands Realtor® needs and has created a program designed specifically for NAR members. With a network of digitally connected locations throughout the country, FedEx Office provides Realtors® on-the-go with convenience and reliability."

FedEx Office has more than 1,800 locations nationwide, including 200 that are open 24 hours a day. With FedEx OfficeSM Print Online, Realtors® can submit orders electronically for printing at any FedEx Office Print & Ship Center location and have pieces delivered to a home or office.

"The more tools and services made available to Realtors®, the more they can help consumers find opportunities in the marketplace," said Goldberg. "For example, the FedEx Office direct mail discount is a great incentive for Realtors® to create effective promotions on different properties, which in turn offers consumers more visibility on homes they are selling."

NAR members already have access to savings of up to 26 percent on shipping services when shipping FedEx Priority Overnight® and FedEx Standard Overnight®. Members can also save up to 12 percent when using FedEx Ground shipping services.

Realtors® can register for these savings programs by visiting www.Realtor.org/FedEx. NAR members must enroll before visiting FedEx Office locations because discounts are directly linked to each member's account number.

NAR's REALTOR Benefits® Program offers practical solutions for Realtors® on the products and services they use every day. The program includes offerings from nearly 30 companies in a variety of categories recognized as leaders in their respective industries.

The National Association of Realtors®, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Information about NAR is available at www.realtor.org. This and other news releases are posted in the News Media section.
