Our mission is to inspire our customers to BELIEVE MORE, equip them to INVEST STRATEGICALLY, and empower them to LIVE FREE.
WHO IS ENTRUST
Originally named 1242 Property Solutions in 2016 by Founder Ben DuBose, the aim of Entrust Investments is to transform communities through real estate investment. Our mission statement may seem odd for a real estate investment company, but it is our deep sense of purpose and stewardship that motivates us. Our primary customers are property sellers and retail or investor buyers, and each has drastically different needs and goals. We strive to inspire each customer to believe for more than their current circumstances seem; encourage them to invest their money, time, and thoughts strategically; and empower them to achieve freedom from mental and financial constraints.
