Accounting Manager

At Adam Hergenrother Companies (AHC), we don’t follow the rules, we create them. We are leaders. We value personal and professional growth. We accept challenges, set goals, and exceed them. We refuse to stay in mediocrity and instead choose to live purposeful lives without limits. We believe that there is always a way and we never give up. We work hard, and we play even harder. We are the company of the future.

Hergenrother Realty Group, a division of Adam Hergenrother Companies, has a new opening for an Accounting Manager who will play an instrumental role in the financial future of our company.

 

Your Mission

Our real estate company is currently in 24 locations and counting. Each location is a small business where it is our fiduciary responsibility to help these teams who have chosen to partner with us minimize expenses and maximize profit. It is our mission to transform lives through homeownership, which not only includes the lives of our clients, but the lives each of our CEOs, agent partners, and employees through growth and wealth creation. The Accounting Manager will play a crucial role in helping us fulfill this mission.

You will be responsible for assisting with the preparation of the operating budget, as well as each team’s individual budget, performing all accounting duties, analyzing team financials for recruiting purposes, as well as overseeing all human resources, financial reporting, regulatory compliance, payroll, corporate contracts, credit cards and banking, and insurance administration.

This position requires a well-organized individual who understands accounting principles and best practices, and is able to think creatively and pivot quickly as the company grows. You must be analytical, but quick. This position requires just as much doing as analyzing and the doing must be done fast. Much of your day will be focused on bookkeeping, P&L reviews, and expense management, as well as providing weekly accounting summaries to each of our teams. Additional projects will include budget reviews, financial analysis of potential new teams, human resources management, vendor negotiations, and contract renewals.

HergGroup prides itself on hiring high performing individuals. High performers like to hang out with other high performers. This job is not for everyone. The bar is set high. Our team members have strong standards and expectations and so do we. Our team thrives under pressure, isn’t afraid of working long hours, or going above and beyond to get results.

You’ll be directly reporting to HergGroup’s Chief Operating Officer, with regular collaboration with the HergGroup Leadership Team and each location’s CEO.

 

Who we are looking for:

– TEAM PLAYER– No one succeeds alone. As part of a larger team, each person is operating in their strength zone in order to achieve results for our clients, Agents, and the company. You are willing to collaborate, will go above and beyond to help out a co-worker or client, and you take responsibility for your mistakes.

– FINANCIAL WIZARD – Like Rumpelstiltskin, you are able to spin straw into gold. Figuratively, of course. Numbers run in your blood. You enjoying data entry, number crunching, and financial analysis. You believe numbers tell a story and you are able to translate complicated financial data into easily digestible information, so that others can make sound decisions.

– RECOVERING PERFECTIONIST– Dotting your “I”s and crossing your “T”s comes naturally. Your work is precise and thorough. You enjoy diving into data and the details. You are not afraid of a little (or a lot) of paperwork or repetitive tasks. Repetition only makes your work product stronger; instead of sloppy. However, you do not allow your perfectionism to slow you down or get in the way of achieving results.

– Real estate industry experience preferred.

 

What will the company look like in one to three years?

HergGroup was ranked #18 in the world in 2018 by Real Trends The Thousand as Advertised in The Wall Street Journal (up from #28 and #49 the previous two years). We closed out 2017 with over 1,000 real estate transactions and expect that number to triple within the next few years. We have placed a strong focus on lead conversion in order to help more people transform their lives through homeownership. We expect to grow our administrative and operational staff by an additional 10 employees to keep up with our continued growth.

 

What does your opportunity for growth look like?

Adam Hergenrother Companies and HergGroup believe in creating a world large enough where no one ever has to leave. Whether developing the Accounting Manager position and taking on more responsibilities, transitioning to another financial position at our sister companies, or growing into a CFO position, the opportunities are available to those that prove themselves and are driven to grow and contribute to our organization.

Our History & Culture

Hergenrother Realty Group (HergGroup) was founded in 2011 by Adam Hergenrother in order to expand his successful real estate team concept beyond the borders of Vermont by partnering with growth-minded CEOs to run additional teams. HergGroup’s business model is the future of real estate. Not all agents want to build a team. Many just want to be on a successful team that shares their values and vision and can help them take their business to the next level without an exorbitant amount of time or risk. That’s where HergGroup comes in.

After many iterations, trial and error, a few capital injections, and a lot of failing forward, we have solidified a model that exemplifies our passion for leadership and leverage. By providing our agents with exceptional centralized services, including world class coaching, training, administrative and operational support, and lead generation, we allow our agents to focus on their one thing – helping people buy and sell real estate. The world is our playground and we won’t give up until HergGroup has covered the globe. From one team in Vermont, to over 24 locations expanding from Maine to Miami to Minnesota, HergGroup is committed to transforming lives through homeownership.
