NRSI Update
An update from David Alvarez, Director of Marketing, NRSI


August 2019 delivered exciting results in various categories highlighted by becoming the second highest grossing month of revenue in the NAEBA Referral Service’s (NRSI) existence.  


NRSI matched 274 consumers nationally with buyer agents to initiate their property search.  Of the 274 prospective home buyers, 158 were matched with NAEBA agents, 112 were matched with Best-Non-NAEBA (BNN) agents, and 4 buyer agent requests went unplaced.    As previously mentioned, revenue hit a milestone as the second highest grossing month of revenue since the inception of NRSI!  Web visitor traffic was also up when compared to a year ago as saw 7,016 visitors in August  of 2019 compared to 3,781 in August of 2018.  Additionally, the dream of home ownership was made a reality for 44 happy consumers as buyer agents guided them throughout the real estate transaction and closed on their properties.  


Lastly, we encourage NAEBA members with questions, or feedback regarding NRSI,  to please feel free and email us at or call us at (800) 986-2322.
