CENTURY 21 Scheetz will be the first real estate company in Indiana to offer health care to its affiliated agents and their families. Agents of the firm with offices in Carmel, Fishers, Indianapolis and Zionsville can expect coverage as soon as July 1.
“Every initiative that CENTURY 21 Scheetz undertakes is to build upon our strong culture,” said Jason O’Neil, president of CENTURY 21 Scheetz. “As a brokerage that is always improving, forward-thinkin and has agent lives as a top priority, we feel compelled to over-deliver the extraordinary to our agents.”
O’Neil has experienced the challenges faced by independent sales professionals when he listed and sold residential real estate before becoming president of the company.
“I know firsthand the struggles, expense and time of dealing with health care as an independent contractor,” he said. “Everyone in our industry understands that this is a major issue, but we get so caught up in tackling the smaller, easier-to-solve issues that we don’t ever get to the big ones. We decided to solve one of the biggest stressors for real estate agents.”
The program could save employees between $300 to $500 per month on health care, and O’Neil hopes it will set the company apart in the market.
“Health care is not a profit generator for us. We believe that happy, worry-free agents are able to focus on creating extraordinary experiences for their clients, in turn sell more property and ultimately increase their success,” O’Neil said. “When our agents are able to focus on the client experience and take care of property owners, we all win.”
