Dave Ramsey Organization Partners with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage
To help agents, their team members and the administrative staff shape a brighter financial future and chart a path to becoming debt free, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage has partnered with Dave Ramsey, a consumer financial expert and counselor with a background in real estate. As a result of the new partnership, everyone on the Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage team will receive complimentary access to Ramsey+, a valuable online program that includes a suite of financial management tools, software applications and educational resources.
“Dave Ramsey is widely known and respected for his integrity and focus on helping others,” said Tom O’Neill, Vice President of Operations for Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. “We’re excited to offer this because his reputation for providing people with a higher degree of financial freedom and knowledge is well known worldwide.”
The Ramsey+ program draws from tried-and-true principles in financial management and provides access to several proprietary systems. Financial Peace University includes a series of online video tutorials and educational resources, and the Every Dollar and Baby Steps applications aid in creating customized budgets, assisting in financial decision-making, providing insights on spending, and seeing real-time progress reports on achieving personal financial goals.
In a survey, postgraduates from the Ramsey+ program reported that in the 90 days following completion of the course, an average of $5,300 in debt was paid off, that 81 percent of couples developed a budget, and that 90 percent allocated $1,000 to an emergency fund.
Though he built a fortune in his early career, when he was earning more than $250,000 per year, Ramsey lost everything as a result of debt obligations and financial mismanagement. “He has an inspiring story to tell,” notes Tim Milam, President of Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage. “His ability to draw from his experiences and provide others with ethical, common-sense based education and insights makes him an outstanding leader and a great resource.”
Over its 30-year history, Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage has grown exponentially and has consistently reinvested in its agents and staff. Milam added that, “As an agent-centric organization, everything we do is centered on helping agents grow and succeed in their efforts to provide their clients with exceptional service. This includes providing advanced marketing, training and technology tools, as well as a culture that supports their happiness and productivity.”
