Venture Real Estate Group

We are looking for THE BEST Construction Field Assistant who will take charge every day like it’s the most important day of their life. We won’t consider reading a boring resume so get ready to be engaging, be creative, be different, be better. We offer our employees a fun and exciting work environment. We are looking for someone who can systematize and organize their day and automate where possible. Our office is a bit different than most. We are raw, honest, and unfiltered. If you find yourself comfortable in that atmosphere - we may be the place for you!

We need a Construction & Maintenance Field Assistant / Handyman who is a detailed-oriented, result-driven overachiever and can prove it! Come help us build an empire within the Real Estate Investment world working with our incredibly knowledgeable Rehab manager. Our company buys 20+ homes every month and rehabs, rents or flips 1/2 of those! Our company is growing quickly and our Construction Division is looking for an experienced construction field assistant to help be the driver of this division's success.

**We are looking for someone that has 3 years of experience in general handyman or construction work as we need you to be able to work on anything thrown your way.**

We need a stable, honest, and genuine individual that is smart, tenacious, and always does the right thing. We seek someone who will make sound decisions based on the needs of and care for the business. Someone who wants to make things right the first time, not because it is expected from them and is in their job responsibilities, but because it is who they are as a person. How you do anything is how you do everything. We do not believe in cutting corners to save a buck here. Our reputation comes first. You have to be persistent with everything you do. If you are assigned a task, of any variety, it is 100% your job to stay on it through to completion and navigate any problems along the way.

You will be a key member of our team responsible for repairs and improvements on our properties. You will need to be able to take and implement direction and guidance from our Rehab Manager, who will be there to set your schedule and make sure everything runs smoothly. He is very considerate and helpful, but you need to be a quick and reliable learner because he does not have the luxury of extra time to repeat himself! 

This is a very fast-paced environment and you will be required to track your own assignments and tasks and communicate once completed. We have people doing most of our rehab jobs, but often we need more hands to take care of the details. Exemplifying our core values, you will show respect and courtesy to all contractors and employees. 

The Base Salary is $45,000 - $55,000 yearly with huge bonus potential for dedication and hard work. PLEASE be sure to include a COVER LETTER or your application will NOT be reviewed! Here’s some real honesty for you: this is a two-way street - if you aren’t willing to take 7 minutes to type up an informal letter introducing yourself to us, then how can we think you’re seriously interested in spending 15+ minutes to interview with us? Resumes don’t really tell us who you ARE or what your true potential is, so just take those 7 minutes and let us know!
