OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Entrust Group's new AgentIRA Program offers real estate brokers and agents a cost-effective, individualized approach to retirement savings using a self-directed IRA.
With a median age of 58, real estate brokers and agents have a good reason to be thinking about retirement. However, thinking about retirement is not the same as having a solid plan and financial resources and education at their fingertips.
The Entrust Group designed the AgentIRA Program to fill this need, and to give real estate brokers/owners another tool to attract, develop, and retain high-quality talent.
AgentIRA Offers Savings Opportunities and Education
Under the AgentIRA Program, agents can contribute a percentage of their commissions from a sale directly to their tax-advantaged, self-directed IRA. Self-directed IRAs allow a range of alternative investments, including what agents know best—real estate.
Participating in the AgentIRA Program also gives real estate agents access to an exclusive array of educational materials, including articles, videos, industry insights, live events, and industry reports to enhance their understanding of self-directed IRAs and investing skills. The program also provides tools to incorporate Real Estate IRAs into their marketing and sales strategy.
Brokers Benefit in Many Ways
The AgentIRA Program allows brokers to offer a valuable benefit to their agents: a way to save for their own retirement, on their own terms. "The AgentIRA Program is a powerful strategy for real estate brokers to attract and retain top talent. It's also a way for them to help prepare agents for their future," said Jason Craig, President of The Entrust Group.
AgentIRA allows brokers to offer this valuable benefit, at no cost to them. Their agents pay a low annual fee, and will have the freedom to manage their self-directed transactions.
In addition, the exclusive educational resources included in the AgentIRA Program will deepen agents' understanding of self-directed IRAs while taking advantage of an investment choice they are already familiar with.
