Transaction Manager
Created on
February 15, 2022
This is a full-time position, in 180-day increments as an independent contractor.


Are you an experienced and ambitious Transaction Manager looking for a new challenge and an

opportunity to advance your career?

If you are able to manage people and multiple properties in escrow simultaneously with tight
deadlines and the utmost consistency, we have the perfect opportunity for you.
We are looking for a dynamic Transaction Manager to lead our team, clients, and all other
parties in managing all of our properties in escrow from start to finish.

We’re Team Kekoa, the one-stop-shop for new investors


We’re agents who broker deals for our investor clients in Washington, Las Vegas,
Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and the Poconos Mountains. We help our clients source, analyze, and negotiate long/short-term rentals. This can a multifamily property as small as a duplex to as large as a 450+ unit apartment portfolio. When it comes to short term rentals, we focus on highly sought out destinations such as weekend getaway areas in the mountains or on the coast. We believe that by sharing our personal
investing experiences while simultaneously walking along each step of the way with our clients, we can inspire more investors to break into Real Estate Investing to truly earn passive income.


We’re seeking a Transaction Manager who is highly detail oriented, aggressive in moving
quickly, and an excellent proactive organizer and planner.


Read on to see if you align with our culture, will produce the results we need, and have
the skills we require.

Our Culture and Values


Our organizational values are the backbone of everything we offer at Team Kekoa. Our culture
is one of continuous adaptability, growth, innovation, and rising to the challenge. Our values are
listed below:


● Have a growth mindset: Constantly innovate, improve, and grow as a human being and
as a member of our team.

● Take ownership: Take responsibility for your job outcomes and contribute to achieving
the best possible results for Team Kekoa, moving the company closer to our shared
vision and goals.


● Be mission-driven: Care about our clients and their aspirations and use this emotional
connection in daily decision making to maximize their experience.


Key Roles of a Transaction Manager:


● Accountable for all properties in Escrow.
● Accountable for all deliverables while a property is in Escrow.
● Leads all communications during the life of a transaction.
● Prepares all offers for clients.


Key Outcomes of the Transaction Manager


1. Lead all communication unless intervention is needed where there is no apparent
solution. In this instance, the TM is supposed to bring the situation to their supervisor
with recommended courses of action.


2. Never jeopardize clients EMD unless otherwise agreed upon by proactively assessing
outcomes of situations that could inadvertently lead to our clients EMD being at risk of
loss by keeping detailed records on the daily summary and in Brokermint.


3. Conduct a weekly one-on-one call with all clients in escrow to highlight documents
currently in motion, and all top priorities requiring their attention with the game plan in
motion for addressing said priorities.


4. Attend a weekly one-on-one review call to assess what is going well, what is not going
well, what do we change moving forward, and what do we keep moving forward.
5. Submit a daily summary for each transaction in escrow highlighting the current status of
documents in motion and what urgent things need to be addressed with their current
course of action.


6. Manage all transactions in Escrow through Brokermint with a daily update on all the
outstanding documents for what is needed to complete said task.


7. Obtain licensing in all markets by the end of the first 90-day period to be held under
Team Kekoa at eXp Realty.


8. Prepare all offers within one hour of a client committing to moving forward on an offer
and completing the rest of the offer fitted with a pre-approval letter, POF’s, and a cover
letter.


You’re the Right Fit If:


Consistency: You have the utmost appreciation for maintaining rigid consistency. A
majority of the Transaction Manager’s role is focused on executing the systems in place
to the ‘t’ in order to execute on the overall mission.

Engineering New Systems: While consistency is the most important aspect of the role, a
close second is always being open to improvement and adapting the systems in place to
conform to the ever changing tides. There is never a perfect system and being able to
locate defects and implement a new course of action to mitigate risk is the name of the
game when working for a high-growth company such as ours.


Proactively Aggressive: Your ability to direct multiple parties in a transaction is
predicated on your willingness to take lead on proactively seeking out things that could
cause for a change in course of action by aggressively seeking out needed details to
ensure our ability to close the transaction smoothly.


Excellent Communication: Your ability to over-communicate will ensure that nothing slips
through the cracks and that all things that could potentially brew into a problem are
considered and addressed ahead of time.
