Licensed Real Estate File Manager & Sales Representative
Licensed Real Estate File Manager & Sales Representative (Kingston and Eastern Ontario Region)
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services Ltd. Brokerage
November 16, 2021
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services is excited to offer an opportunity to join our professional team delivering an exceptional level real estate service to our clients. As a key member of our client engagement team, you will play a central role in working closely with our clients who have entrusted Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services with the often overwhelming process of transitioning to the next phase of their lives, be it downsizing or settling an estate, including the sale of their current property. Our client make-up and demographic naturally have a clear willingness and/or personal mandate to move on.
As a Real Estate File manager, you will be responsible for all aspects of managing the relationship with our client – from an initial meeting where you will get to know our client, understanding their goals, objectives and unique attributes of their property, to preparing a comprehensive, industry-leading buyer information package, providing trusted advice on pricing and preparing the property for sale, managing a comprehensive sales process, responding to inquiries from prospective buyers, managing the offer presentation process, and supporting the client through to closing. Files will span from Kingston to Ottawa and other parts of Eastern Ontario.
As a Real Estate Sales Representative, in addition to your principal role as a File Manager, you will have the ability to earn commission from your personal sphere of influence, leads provided to you by Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services and leads generated through your file management role. Commissions may be earned through Buyer and Seller agency relationships, but always following the Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services standard of practice.
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services will support your success with training and will provide you with client assignments as your schedule and demonstrated performance permits, eliminating the need for you to engage in the expensive and time-consuming process of prospecting for seller listings and allowing you to focus on delivering the highest level of service to Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services clients.
As a natural result of serving our clients at the highest level, other buyer and seller prospects will naturally be attracted to you. You will be able to convert these prospects to buyer agency and seller agency relationships. This will allow you to earn additional income on these opportunities without incurring expenses.
Your compensation will be commensurate with your experience and qualifications and will include a performance-based component. Your ability to generate buyer and seller leads resulting from your natural day to day file management duties and earning “commission” from such, is limited only by your willingness to follow them through.
