Transaction Coordinator Job Opening

At Lanier Property Group, we look forward to Mondays. We love working alongside each other to make a difference in the lives of our clients. We have the honor and joy of helping people find their dream home: the place where they will raise their family, create memories, host friends, and celebrate holidays.

We are looking for a highly organized Transaction Coordinator who is passionate about helping others realize the rewards of home ownership and who is willing to be a go-to for clients, agents, and vendors alike throughout the process. Primary responsibilities for this position include assisting real estate agents on our team with all aspects of the deal (from contract to closing), building and maintaining relationships with clients and vendors throughout the transaction process, scheduling closings, inspections, repairs, and handling any other issue(s) that may pop up! Sounds like a lot? It is! But we know the right person will thrive in this sometimes hectic, yet always rewarding environment. 


We hope this hire will not only work within our current systems, but improve them to create new processes where needed. They will thrive in a fast-paced environment and are equally good at working alone and collaboratively. We’re looking for someone who is calm under pressure, flexible, personable, detail oriented, respectful of confidentiality, organized, and proactive. Does this sound like the rewarding career and environment you’re looking for? Then we want to talk to you!
