Some Bragging Rights


On November 18th, the Southwest Missouri Board of REALTORS® and other members of the community celebrated the building of a pavilion at the Aurora Chamber of Commerce. The SWMOBOR partnered with the Chamber of Commerce to create a gathering place for the city and received a grant from NAR for supplies. Thank you all for your hard work and efforts to make this pavilion possible. This location is important to the city of Aurora historically. It was a site where people could board and get off the trains that came through town. A museum inside the Chamber of Commerce holds historical items that remind the public of its history. They can take tours of the building and the caboose. Now, thanks to the NAR grant and the Southwest Board of REALTORS® efforts, coupled with the community and the Chamber of Commerce, people have a gathering place to watch the trains and take in the rich history of Aurora.

New Health and Wellness Offerings for REALTORS®


Members Telehealth and Accident Deductible Protection

NAR’s Strategic Alliances Team is pleased to announce the introduction of two new offerings which expand the REALTORS® Insurance Marketplace platform, under the Association’s REALTOR Benefits® Program: Members Telehealth, a telemedicine service plan, and Accident Deductible Protection, a supplementary health plan to major medical.

  • Members Telehealth is a new offering that provides NAR members with convenient, 24/7/365 access to MDLIVE, a network of over 2,300 U.S. state licensed and board-certified physicians and therapists who may be accessed for non-emergency medical issues through telephone, smartphone app, web chat, or email. Telehealth plans offer time savings and convenience. No more waiting days or even weeks to see your doctor; MDLIVE doctors are always on call, including nights and weekends. Additionally, the time spent traveling to a doctor’s office or urgent care facility is eliminated.  Telehealth is currently one of the biggest trends in digital medicine and is an option that top companies have been employing to assist individuals with cost-saving solutions. MDLIVE is a leading provider in the space, and NAR is excited to present NAR members with the opportunity to access quality care wherever they might be.
  • Accident Deductible Protection is a health plan designed to supplement a major medical plan as part of a cost-saving strategy. It helps pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses incurred through an accident. It’s designed to supplement major medical insurance plans that have high out-of-pocket costs and deductibles, and includes the Members Telehealth service plan as a bonus for NAR members.

Please find below a fact sheet outlining details of these new offers. Both plans bring significant savings opportunities to NAR members and their families.
