Keller Williams Living

The Director of Finance And Operations is a critical member of the Brokerage leadership team, which also includes the Operating Principal (OP) and the Team Leader (TL). In collaboration with this team, the Director of Finance and Operations uses the systems, tools, and conversations of the Keller Williams Growth Initiative to collaboratively drive the brokerage to profitability through growth in market share.

The Director of Finance and Operations can be thought of as the “voice of value” in the brokerage. Using Keller Williams systems, models, and tools, they own the brokerage's value systems and consistently quantify and communicate value to support associate validity. They use this value to retain associates while supporting associates’ growth in production. They monitor their success by inspecting net agent count and profitability. Additionally, using these tools and conversations, they support associates in building profitable businesses by demonstrating and consulting on shared business-building fundamentals. 

They support the Team Leader and associates and lead the brokerage staff. The Director of Finance and Operations proactively uses the systems, tools, and conversations of Keller Williams to minimize challenges. However, when challenges arise, the Director Of Finance and Operations leverages evidence from Keller Williams to direct associates to productive solutions.

The Director of Finance and Operations uses the Leverage system and tools to hire and lead a powerful staff who will support them, TL, and OP in achieving brokerage goals as a product of achieving their own goals.

The Director of Finance and Operations is an individual who is a rapid problem solver, who easily and quickly learns from their environment, and who appreciates an efficient work structure. They are able to think through a problem or solution in order to present it logically to others and enjoy a variety of responsibilities in a changing environment. They are not typically demanding, strive to cultivate trust and goodwill through effective communication, and are concerned about doing what is right according to the standards. 

You must be an independent decision-maker, self-sufficient, and self-directed in their activities while understanding their activities must be in complete alignment with Keller Williams and the rest of the brokerage leadership team.

You have a track record of success in supportive leadership roles with a background in accounting. We would like to see at least 1–3 years of experience in leading others.
