At first this person might serve as a real estate transaction coordinator, listing manager, marketing director, and administrative assistant all at the same time. 

However, as an agent’s production increases it becomes more and more difficult for an assistant to keep up with all of these duties. 

Often times agents will make their second hire a real estate transaction coordinator devoted solely to processing listings and transactions under contract.
