Real Estate Agents

Due to our association with Cottrell Title & Escrow, we began meeting countless Real Estate Agents who were getting poor or no tax advice. In an effort to help Real Estate Agents, we began teaching classes designed to save Real Estate Agents thousands of dollars in taxes. We have taught our classes at most brokerage firms in town and frequently we speak at NABOR and BEAR events. Our classes now range from ways to save money on taxes, FIRPTA, and QuickBooks.




As we worked with more and more real estate agents we realized that there were a lot of foreign buyers and sellers that were not getting any tax advice. Then the IRS changed the rules regarding passports and ITINs. Our firm was one of the first in Naples to become a CAA (certified acceptance agent) allowing us to certify passports for the IRS. With our relationship with Cottrell Law Group, we are able to help foreigners will all aspects of buying, renting, and selling real estate in the US.
