HMS National and GMAC Real Estate today announced an alliance that enables GMAC Real Estate’s more than 20,000 sales associates to offer the company’s own branded home protection plan to their home-buying and -selling clients.

As a result of the alliance, HMS National has created a specific home warranty program for the national real estate franchiser called “The GMAC Real Estate Home Protection Plan,” which will cover such essential items as heating, air conditioning, electrical, plumbing and major appliances. Additional options, such as swimming pool coverage, can be added for a nominal cost.

“This program will provide GMAC Real Estate’s sales associates and Global Relocation Services Counselors with a new tool to help ensure their customers have a worry-free, seamless transaction,” said John Bearden, president and CEO of GMAC Home Services, the parent company of GMAC Real Estate.

GMAC Home Services is one of North America’s largest real estate organizations, delivering its unique Premier Service business program to home buyers and sellers through its three operating companies: GMAC Real Estate, GHS Mortgage and GMAC Global Relocation Services. Backed by the resources of industry giant General Motors, the GMAC Home Services network has 1,300 franchised and owned residential real estate offices throughout the United States and Canada.

HMS National Inc. is a provider of home warranty programs and a range of products and services in the real estate industry.
