What is a Transaction Coordinator?

Learn more about this party involved in closing a real estate transaction.

If you're under contract to purchase or sell a home, you may have heard of a Transaction Coordinator. 

💡 Keep in mind that this role can vary per company or per transaction. 

A Transaction Coordinator's job is to manage the working parts of a transaction from the time it is under contract up until closing. 

This might include: 

  • Scheduling inspections
  • Sending documents for signatures
  • Updating title companies, lenders, inspectors, the other agent & anyone else involved
  • Schedule closing

This person does not necessarily need to be a licensed realtor, though some are. Typically, although this person is assisting with the transaction, your realtor will be your first point of contact.
