Real-time tracking

TrustFunds provides real-time tracking for brokers to easily view the status of every earnest money payment submitted to your trust account. See when each payment is requested, which property it’s for, the earnest money amount, when the buyer has submitted the funds, and when the funds clear into your trust account. You and the agents involved receive real-time notification, every. step. of. the. way.


“I spend more than five dollars in gas chasing and delivering the earnest money check on a typical transaction. TrustFunds saves all that time and is much more secure than a paper check.”
Sue Schorn Edina Realty


“Brokers [agents] never have to leave our MLS, they just click the TrustFunds link, enter a few earnest money details, select which registered trust account holder to send the funds to and that’s it. We truly believe this will become the standard for earnest money.”
Chris Haran, MRED, Chief Technology Officer


“TrustFunds has been a HUGE benefit to my brokerage. My agents love not having to be responsible for keeping clients’ checks and my clients love the convenience. And, as a broker, I love that we are ALWAYS in compliance with our contract. “
Christina Strait Strait Realty


“Since I have been using TrustFunds, it has been much easier to deposit the earnest money. I don’t have to run the check to the post office, or take it to the office of the other agent. I just need a few minutes on my computer!”
Artemisa Boston Azteca Realty Group


“I love TrustFunds! My clients always feel secure about the handling of their money and where it is deposited. They get a transaction receipt and both agents know that the contract performance is being fulfilled. It’s just a better way to do business for a Professional Realtor.”
De Lynn Klosterhoff Re/Max Results


“Before TrustFunds, getting the earnest money on time and tracking it was a time-consuming process. This simplifies that process so much. Agents have told me once they use it, they will never go back to the paper check process again.”

    Paper check vs TrustFunds

    Do you ever wonder about the liability of a paper check that has the buyer’s routing and account numbers on it? Or, your agents setting the check on the front seat of their car? Or, making copies of the check with bank account numbers for record-keeping?

    The TrustFunds system offers layers of digital security far more advanced than the paper check. Our electronic earnest money process ensures complete security for all parties through SSL, security audits, secret-word technology, and data encryption. Still have security questions?
