Realogy Launches New Cash Back Rewards Program for Members of the Military

The new program allows members of the military and their families to get cashback when they buy or sell a home. The program called  Realogy Military Rewards is facilitated by Cartus and utilizes agents in the Realogy portfolio, including Century 21 New Millennium. Customers can sign up through a Realogy broker or through the Cartus system and get anywhere from $350 to $7,500 in cashback after closing.

“Realogy has a long history of supporting our servicemen and servicewomen during one of life’s most special and critical milestones: buying or selling a home,” said Ryan Schneider, Realogy’s chief executive officer and president. “The new Realogy Military Rewards program extends our support to the entire U.S. military community and their families by providing a real estate agent experienced with military moves, an advocate to offer support along the way, and substantial cash back upon closing.”

For more information or to sign up, email or call me at 702-340-8000.

* The cash back bonus is offered in most states. In some states, a gift card or commission reduction at closing may be provided in lieu of the cash back bonus. The program is not available for employer-sponsored relocations or transactions in Iowa or outside the United States. The cash back bonus is not available in Alaska, Louisiana and Oklahoma. In Kansas and Tennessee, a MasterCard MAX gift card will be issued. In Mississippi, New Jersey, and Oregon, a commission reduction may be available at closing. The cash back bonus is only available with the purchase and/or sale of your home through the use of a program-introduced real estate agent. The actual amount you receive is based on the purchase and/or sale price of your home. All real estate commissions are negotiable. Other terms and conditions may apply. This is not a solicitation if you are already represented by a real estate broker. Please check with a program coordinator for details. Program terms and conditions are subject to change at any time without notice. Additional terms, conditions, and restrictions apply.
