What Is a Transaction Coordinator?

A transaction coordinator plays a vital role in a real estate deal. This neutral third party oversees all paperwork and administrative tasks involved in a real estate transaction from contract to closing. A real estate agent or broker will hire a transaction coordinator to help lighten the agent or broker’s workload so they can spend more time with clients.“When first starting out as a real estate agent, many agents handle all of the tasks involved in a real estate transaction to avoid the expense of having an assistant or using a transaction coordinator,” says Jonathan Rundlett, regional owner at EXIT Mid-Atlantic, a regional franchisor for EXIT Realty based in Maryland. “However, using a transaction coordinator can save you a whole lot of time and frustration and ensure that the deal goes smoothly from start to finish.”… READ MORE

A Complete Guide to a Real Estate Transaction Coordinator

Guide to Real Estate Transaction Coordinator

When it comes to being a real estate agent, there is a lot more to the process than submitting offers and handing over the keys. A typical transaction involves a multitude of tasks from start to finish that require coordination, expertise, and dedication.

Initially, many solo REALTORs opt to handle the transaction process themselves. There are two great reasons to do so. First, it allows the agent to have more control over the process.  Completing transactions will also help them understand the processes and potential pitfalls, which is useful if they decide to add more agents to their real estate team. Additionally, most new real estate agents don’t have enough transactions or an operating budget big enough to hire a Transaction Coordinator at the beginning of their career

However, once an agent is working with several buyer and seller clients at the same time, a Transaction Coordinator is essential. Having the aid of a transaction coordinator ensures everything runs smoother, so the agent doesn’t get burned out working excessive hours trying to juggle too many tasks at once. Additionally, the extra time can be utilized to market yourself as a real estate agent. … READ MORE

What are the Benefits of a Transaction Coordinator?

Let’s face it, real estate transactions can be extremely complicated and take up a lot of an agent’s time. But, dealing with contracts and disclosures comes with the territory when you’re in escrow.

While this is a necessary part of being a real estate agent, savvy agents leverage their time, so they can continue cultivating leads and getting new business.

One way to make time for yourself is to hire a transaction coordinator (TC.)

One important thing to know is that a Transaction Coordinator is not an assistant. Their priority is to keep the transaction in order and manage the documents.

So, what is a transaction coordinator, and what do they do?

First, let’s look at the transaction process to see how a transaction coordinator gets involved…
