A well-known real estate advisory firm requires an experienced Transaction Specialist to join a dynamic and high-profile team. This position is based in Johannesburg but will require the incumbent to source, negotiate and conclude high value real estate transactions in sub-Saharan Africa too.
The organisation has a strong international footprint and network of partners and clients, but the Senior Transaction Specialist will be required to source new assets at the correct price and take these to the correct potential purchases. In other words, this is a senior property professional with a good knowledge base of what makes a real estate sale work, and who can find wiling buyers and willing sellers. You will need to be revenue and profit driven and have a track record in meeting and exceeding challenging targets and KPI's. Extensive knowledge and track record of notable transactions in the South, West OR East African commercial and industrial real estate landscapes is essential.
An entrepreneurial spirit and mindset are required to flourish in the role which will require you to execute high value and complex high margin transactions, drive profitability and secure transactional sell-side mandates.
Experience and qualifications required:
- Master's degree or equivalent in Finance / Economics / Real Estate, ideally with a complimentary post graduate qualification too
- 5-10 years relevant experience
- Eligible to work in South Africa
