Divvy Homes

About the organization

Over the past decade, millions of Americans have been forced to put their dreams of homeownership on hold. Home prices have outpaced wage growth while mortgage requirements continue to tighten. As a result, renters are missing out on a critical wealth-building opportunity: owning a home.

At Divvy, we're building an on-ramp to homeownership – one that's more affordable, more flexible, and an overall better fit for the modern American family – and it’s working.

Duties

In this role, you’ll help run our front line home-buying efforts -- scrubbing down dozens of home listings per week to determine our purchase price, while working closely with our customers and agent partners. Our north star: provide a differentiated, trust-building home buying experience by turning inbound leads into homebuyers.

The process is fast-paced, emotionally charged, and incredibly rewarding. Our close rate is high because we run a tight process, have well-defined rulesets, and turn our customers into cash-buyers who can close quickly.

Responsibilities
Evaluate the quality/eligibility of every home we purchase.
Extend $5M+ of offers to buy homes and acquire each home at a viable price point.
Speak with dozens of agents and/or homebuyers.
Ensure our agent partners are informed and well-equipped to win every deal.
Work cross-functionally with underwriting/sales/marketing to improve the customer experience.
Contribute to metro-specific intelligence building and pricing strategies.

You’re excited about this opportunity because…
You care about homeownership. You’re eager to be on the front-line purchasing hundreds of homes per month.
You're detail-oriented. You love sleuthing house listings to find the real story about a home.
You have exemplary phone, listening + writing skills. You’ll be speaking to agents and homebuyers every day.
You are a motivated, rapid learner. The team is constantly evolving and we’re always looking for ways to improve.

Qualifications

BA/BS degree or equivalent experience.
2+ years of work experience in a relevant field preferred (real estate, sales, finance, business, or other quantitative fields).
Ability to work weekends and have some late nights in the Spring/Summer. That means volume is spiking... good problems to have!
Strong written, verbal communication, and presentation skills.
Highly amicable and conversational nature.
Robust familiarity with cloud-based tools (Google, CRMs, Slack, and other modern collaboration tools).
Real estate license(s) are very useful but not required. Market-specific experience not required.
