If you’re thinking about hiring a Transaction Coordinator, here’s some tips to help you find the perfect candidate for your business.
After being in the business for over 30 years, interviewing and training hundreds of TC’s, I have a pretty good system that helps me to identify the top prospects.
Most of you don’t have the time nor ability to train someone new.
If this is the case, then always ask how many years the TC has been working as a Coordinator (real estate agent work does not count) and how many transactions have they closed in the last two years. Experienced TC need less direction and hand holding. They know what they need to do, are better problem solvers and can multi-task.
Ask how they organize their day. What are the priorities?
Do they use any systems? Are they experienced with the various broker platforms such as Skyslope, electronic signature programs, etc.? A good TC is super comfortable with technology.
Ask them specifically what services do they provide and have experience in?
Some Coordinators only process paperwork that’s delivered to them. If you’re expecting them to do more, you’ll need to discuss this.
Share a list of what you would like your TC to take care of for you.
Ask for references!
Your TC may have closed a lot of transactions but may not have a good system to ensure DRE/Broker file compliance.
