Licensed Real Estate Salesperson: Listing Manager (Ottawa - Remote Position)
Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services provides peace of mind through our one-stop-shop real estate solutions for downsizers, estate trustees, and powers of attorneys. Presently, we are looking for a licensed realtor interested in joining our growing professional team of Listing Managers. In this role, you will be responsible for the management and execution of all aspects of our real estate sale process for clients assigned to you by the Company (with expert mentorship and guidance provided by our team). As a team, we deliver an exceptional experience for our clients who are often overwhelmed by the idea of downsizing or settling an estate.
A newly licensed real estate agent, licensed appraiser, or someone who has had their license for a while but may not have made a living trading in real estate yet
Someone who is looking to play with dolphins vs swim with sharks
More interested in a steady income in real estate with more controllable working hours and all expenses paid vs traditional brokerage environments
Potentially someone who has relevant past experience such as: project management, research, social / case worker, administrative coordinator, etc.
Someone that believes in values like: listening first, being compassionate, being health conscious, providing real expertise, and delivering positive outcomes
You are looking for:
A team that, as a team, provides unparalleled value to downsizers or estate executors at a difficult time in their lives
A slower pace than a typical real estate salesperson (though may have some intense bursts) with an estimated 35hrs of effort per file to take it from start to finish.
Autonomy and ownership of the client real estate relationship with expert mentorship while having access to the team for problem solving and overcoming challenges
All expenses paid including dues, insurance, fees, memberships, mileage, supplies, cell phone, etc.
Income of ~$40K-$60K+ in your first year (before taxes) based on the volume of listings you will be asked to manage and ~$60K to $150K total steady income range in years 2-3 depending on the pace of life you want - all without needing to market yourself. You just need to deliver our exceptional process
Additional compensation via our team bonus pool
As a Real Estate Listing manager for Gordon’s Downsizing & Estate Services, you will be responsible for all aspects of managing the real estate relationship with our client in accordance with our process including:

Research, analysis and review of industry data to provide trusted advice on pricing
Preparing a comprehensive, industry-leading buyer information package
Executing our predictable sales process
Managing the offer presentation process
Supporting the client through to closing
Keeping the team and stakeholders informed of progress updates via emails, calls, weekly team check ins, and notes in our client management software systems.
As a Real Estate Sales Representative, in addition to your Listing Manager duties, you will have the opportunity to make additional income via commissions from leads provided to you by the Company and/or through your Listing Manager duties as well as your network. Income earned through Buyer and Seller agency relationships must follow our trusted process.
Unique things you get as a Real Estate Listing Manager at Gordon’s:
A pipeline of signed customers with typically 6 weeks of lead time (minimum)
Payment at time of listing launch on MLS (not closing)
One on one training with non-competing team members
No need to generate your own leads/sales, manage social media/marketing, etc.
All expenses required to perform your role are covered with no desk fees (dues, fees, memberships, mileage, cell phone, laptop, printer, etc)
No need to manage or attending open houses
Infrequent evening and weekend work depending on the pace you desire
Every minute of effort is for an operational / client purposes - no wasted time or effort
Differentiation via a superior offering delivered by a team
No need to spending time on the logistics of preparing the property for sale (our Transition team handles this for our clients)
You will serve far more customers in your first year with us than the average realtor has in 3 years, but your compensation will reflect that of an employee on a team versus being a one person show
You will learn how to price and sell real estate across a large geography
