RESIDENTIAL SALES PROGRESSOR

A rare opportunity has arisen to join our Sales Progression Department known internally as 'Support'. Support is the key element to this role as you will be supporting and leading clients through the sales process from ‘offer agreed’ to completion.

Do you enjoy the sale progression element more than the selling houses side of estate agency? Are you thoroughly knowledgeable of the residential conveyancing process? Can you work hard to keep our lovely buyers and sellers up to date with the progression of their sale/purchase to keep them informed and put their minds at rest?

This role would ideally be located within our Norwich branch based within our team of Sale Progressors although can be based from another location within the Arnolds Keys network.   

We are looking for someone who offers excellent customer service, a first-class telephone manner and a dogged attitude to get things done. An exacting knowledge of the legal process of property sales is essential although this could be from the estate agency or conveyancing sectors.

We are happy to consider full or part time hours between 8:30am – 6pm. There is a competitive salary and commission package on offer as well as carer progression and personal development including the NAEA Propertymark technical award in property sales Level 3.

If you are interested in the role and would like a discreet conversation or if you would like to apply please email your CV and a covering letter to Martyn Baum martyn.baum@arnoldskeys.com
