  • Strong drafting and negotiating skills
  • Energetic, inquisitive, good work ethic
  • Must have local experience, used to working in a high performing, fast-paced environment
  • Bonus skillset (but not required): property/real estate (sale contracts, leases, licensing etc.)

If you are interested in applying for this position or would like to find out more, please contact me for a confidential discussion.
