Financial Literacy Courses for Realtors® on June 7, 8, and 9 | 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monmouth University. To assist Realtors® in understanding the importance of financial planning and how to best implement processes for their own needs, New Jersey Realtors® will be offering a financial literacy series June 7, 8, and 9 in concert with Monmouth University. By providing these courses — which can be taken individually or as a discounted bundle — we hope to arm Realtors® with the knowledge needed to plan for retirement, better prepare for tax season, and have an overall better understanding of how to set up a financial plan for themselves. While the financial aspect of your business may seem cumbersome on a day-to-day basis, a lack of financial planning tends to come to a head particularly around tax season when monies may be owed to the IRS. What’s more, is that it’s becoming an unfortunate trend for Realtors® to work well into their senior years because they have not planned for retirement. These classes have been designed for Realtors® of all ages and experience levels and will cover managing money, state and federal tax planning, capital gains tax, and investing in real estate and other asset classes. Each course will be from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on its designated day. This series is only available on to members of New Jersey Realtors. Each course is $49. Bundle all 3 courses for $125!
