Our History

Established 1985, NRI was founded by Herbert Seeger and Theodore Bell, two innovative pioneers in the relocation industry.  Mr. Seeger saw the need to be the first corporate relocation company to provide professional home marketing and valuation services to employees.

This feature – a new concept to the industry – enhanced an employee’s ability to sell their home quickly at a fair market price.  It also removed the conflict of interest between corporate and employee home value opinion.  Since then, NRI has organically added services to meet the needs of its client base, culminating in our status as a global relocation management company today.

In addition, Mr. Bell is officially credited by Worldwide ERC® as the original creator of the relocation home buyout transaction process, today known as the Guaranteed Buyout Offer (GBO) and precursor to the Buyer Value Option (BVO).  We are proud of our historical contributions to the relocation industry and this inspires us to drive innovation through our company today.
