While the position is majority remote, you must reside in New Jersey and have the ability to reliably commute to the office in Edison to attend closings. 

Before applying, ask yourself: Are you up for a challenge? Would you consider yourself flexible? Does inefficiency keep you up at night? Do you take pride in your work product? Can you handle constructive criticism and endeavor to do better? Do you want to grow and make money? Can you see yourself as a leader? Do you want to leave a legacy? Can you think independently and come up with creative solutions to unique problems?
