Frequently Asked Questions

A Transaction Coordinator, or “TC” for short, is responsible for managing the details of a real estate deal from contract to close. Your Transaction Coordinator will be the connection between agents, clients, escrow companies and lenders, monitoring the file’s progress, ensuring timelines are met and that documents are properly executed. All of our Transaction Coordinators at Real Time Savers also have a Washington State real estate license and individual access to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

So ask yourself this: How much prospecting can you do in 20 hours? Our Transaction Coordinators at Real Time Savers free up your calendar so you can spend that time more profitably, finding new clients and selling more property.
