HomeSmart International Makes Benefits Available to its 14,000+ Agents

Real estate franchisor partners with Resourcing Edge to offer benefits program amid the rising cost of health insurance.

(Scottsdale) ⎼ HomeSmart International has been working with Resourcing Edge, a Certified Professional Employer Organization, to offer a health insurance program for HomeSmart sales professionals that offers savings and advantages available only with group buying power.

Receiving cost effective and suitable benefits coverage is often a challenge for 1099 real estate professionals. HomeSmart is leveraging their size to bring agents cost and time-saving opportunities that benefit them and their business.

“As independent contractors, finding suitable benefits for themselves and their families can be time consuming and expensive,” said Wendy Forsythe, COO of HomeSmart International. “We’re glad to have the opportunity to offer a solution to agents so that they don’t have to spend so much time searching on their own.”

HomeSmart is a business-system franchisor that takes a more holistic view of an agent’s business and also considers personal needs, just as they do for their employees and staff.

“Our main priority is providing agent support,” said Matt Widdows, HomeSmart International CEO and founder. “We consider our agents’ business needs beyond leads and closings to ensure that they have everything they need to be successful.”

Resourcing Edge is thrilled to work with HomeSmart to put together a comprehensive benefits package that would work for their agents nationally.

Ron Cleboski, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing of Resourcing Edge said, “Throughout the process, HomeSmart has reiterated its emphasis on service and support and we look forward to offering the same high-quality experience for agents who choose to participate in the program.”

In addition to providing benefits to agents, Resourcing Edge also provides human resource and benefits support for employers. HomeSmart International franchise broker/owners now have the ability to use the same PEO program to offer benefits to their staff, while additionally taking advantage of an expansive selection of human resource services including payroll, policies and procedures and legal services.
