A Mutually Beneficial Partnership
By Juan Bueno, Vice President, Sales, The Home Depot
Real estate investors are up against countless demands in today’s fast-paced environment. Whether you’re prepping a vacant property for move-in or repairing an occupied residence, there’s a real need to work smarter, not harder, to succeed.
This is something The Home Depot Pro uniquely understands, which is why we’re dedicated to providing real estate investors with the right mix of expertise, products and services. One way we’re committed to doing so is through our longstanding partnership with NREIA designed to promote, protect and educate the real estate investing industry.
Spurred in large part by this relationship, we’ve seen significant growth in a number of areas. In 2019, our sales of lumber, building materials, flooring and paints experienced 100% year-over-year growth.
The Power of Partnership
As two respected industry leaders working together, we’ve been able to advance the missions of both NREIA and The Home Depot Pro by offering real estate investors with unparalleled support and benefits.
Our Pro Xtra loyalty program is just one example of this. Designed by professionals for professionals, it helps you save money, manage your spending and grow your business through special services, savings and business tools. In addition to the program’s standard benefits, NREIA members receive a 2% semi-annual rebate on sales over $5,000 in addition to 20% off paints and primers from top brands like Behr and PPG. It’s free to join, so I encourage you to check it out and get started today.
Furthering our Commitment
Our strong relationships with chapter members and leaders have driven this partnership for the past decade. United in our shared values, we’ve gained critical input from NREIA members regarding our in-store and online offerings to better serve you.
How you address property improvement has evolved, and The Home Depot Pro is changing to meet your needs. We understand that serving you means being more than just a store. With that, we’ve updated our suite of services to include a full set of delivery options, digital planning tools, product innovations and mobile access.
It’s incredibly gratifying to know that so many of you trust us to support your business – which brings me to the power of our current partnership and how we’re strengthening our commitment to you in the year ahead. In 2020, we’re excited to introduce initiatives that will better serve NREIA members, including a new online Pro experience and innovative in-store processes.
Above all, we aspire to offer a frictionless and interconnected experience for you, no matter the project and no matter how you choose to engage with us.
In closing, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank NREIA chapter leaders across the U.S. who have helped strengthen this incredible relationship over the past decade. With our new offerings and exclusive incentives, we’re excited for all the amazing things we’ll build together next year and for many years to come.
