Real Estate Transaction Coordinator / Project Manager

Are you knowledgeable about the real estate closing process and love the word “organized”? Do your friends consider you to be super organized, resourceful and down right smart? Can you take pieces of information, create a plan, and then communicate it to others?

Preclose, a Charleston based software company, is growing its transaction coordination service for top real estate agents and growing real estate teams. Using our proprietary software, our team of expert transaction coordinators handle the nuts and bolts behind all the communication and activities of coordinating, scheduling and getting buyers and sellers to the closing table. We excel during the contract-to-close process, so real estate agents can focus on revenue-generating activity.

Preclose has a fast paced work environment and we seek talented team members who crave learning new skills and aren't afraid to tackle big projects. As a Transaction Coordinator, you will work directly with our lead transaction coordinator to manage our client's transactions. Our ideal person is someone who loves to be heads down looking at information and gets carried away organizing things. Someone who loves real estate and is driven to make things happen, and work closely with our clients to make sure they have all the information they need to close. We love our clients, some of the top real estate agents in the country, and want you to be their advocate during the closing process.

Since we are also a software company, the Transaction Coordinator will also work closely with other team members, like our Development team. Which means, opportunity to learn new things, like turning a common question into videos and content for our support desk. We’re a startup, you wear many hats.
