Elam Real Estate

Unique Loan Officer Position

This mortgage office is located "inside" Elam Real Estate. Elam Real Estate is a very unique set up. ERE is run much more like a traditional business and NOT like a traditional Real Estate Office. We work to create a environment in which our team "enjoys" coming to work - vs - so many other environments where team members dread coming to work. Elam has teamed up with CMG mortgage to offer an unparalleled mortgage lending platform. This remote lending arm is supported by one of the most robust processing and closing departments around middle TN. This position will work directly with Elam Real Estate Agents - working to ensure Elam agents have your full and complete attention. Elam offers between 15 and 25 agents for you and your team to work.

The best candidate will be intelligent, hard-working and a passionate individual who wants to be part of something that is growing – with a desire to be great at what you do… not just good. We need people who possess a work ethic and passion that inspires those around them. We are seeking forward thinking people, who produce results rather than wait for them. You will not be micromanaged – must be a self-starter with a leadership personality. You will be given the tools and support staff needed to meet specific expectations and it will be entirely up to you to make sure that this happens. Must be driven by high performance in a high expectation environment, be able to effectively multi-task and prioritize activities. Must be able to interact AND enjoy working with multiple Real Estate Agent personalities.

There is never a dull day in the Elam Real Estate office - NOR is there more of a rewarding environment to work.
