Transaction Coordinators have various backgrounds; some come from administrative, accounting, or finance positions while others may have worked within law firms before getting involved in real estate.

If a transaction is complex or your workload exceeds what you can handle, then hiring someone to help you is the right choice. Transaction coordinators handle the heavy lifting and allow agents to focus on what they do best: working on connecting with their sphere of influence and affiliates to generate new business and referrals.
