What You’ll Do Here
You are the key to home ownership. As an escrow officer, you’re the human link between our process and people. You’re there at the beginning, reviewing contracts and following instructions. You’re there in the middle, ensuring that all the associated paperwork is completed efficiently and accurately. You’re working with real estate agents and their clients to keep the process moving forward, verifying that titles are clean, taxes are paid, and loans are funded. Finally, you’re there at the end to assure that no funds or property will change hands until all terms have been carried to completion.
- A to Z: Ensure the contract is closed promptly, efficiently, and without error from beginning to end.
- Relationship building: Establishing and maintaining relationships with essential industry players –real estate agents, attorneys, lenders, surveyors, and government agencies – that enable you to manage transactions smoothly.
- Business builder: Earning the confidence and trust of new agents and creating opportunities to market our business; retaining agents by providing them with white-glove service.
- Talent builder: Training escrow assistants to open opportunities for advancement; delegating, auditing work, answering questions and giving direction.
- Sealing the deal: Being present at closing and making it a positive, memorable experience for agents and buyers.
We are a 100% resale/purchase business (no-refis) and we do not expect you to do business development.
What You Bring
- Education: High school diploma or equivalent; take continuing education courses as required.
- Experience: Close to three years of escrow experience, both front- and back-end experience.
