VIENNA, Va., Nov. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Navy Federal partnered with Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of employee relocation solutions, to hold its inaugural Navy Federal RealtyPlus Broker Network Summit on November 13 in Vienna, Va. The event marked the 25th anniversary of RealtyPlus, a free nationwide service that gives one-on-one service and, in most states, pays cash back to Navy Federal members who buy and sell homes. The conference gave realtors an overview of Navy Federal mortgage products, as well as broker best practices.
"Providing the best member service should shine through every area of our business," said Navy Federal's Assistant Vice President, Real Estate Agent Liaison, Bill Tessier. "Our relationship with RealtyPlus is one extension of how we can offer our members the most customized, stress-free experience. In a heavy purchase market environment, this conference is a great opportunity to further educate our broker partners on best practices and exceptional service." In the last five years, the credit union's number of RealtyPlus closed transactions increased by 200 percent, and year-to-date thirteen percent of first mortgages were closed through the program.
"We were very proud to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our relationship with Navy Federal," said Cartus Senior Vice President, Affinity Services, Steve Slabaugh. "It's our honor to work with Navy's membership during their home buying and selling experience. Our broker network is dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for every member and our cash back bonus program is a valuable benefit to Navy members. We are proud of all the awards winners who are outstanding representatives of the Cartus broker network."
