The Company

Orchard is transforming the way people buy and sell their homes. Simplifying it, to the way it should have always been; fair and true to market, straightforward, easy. Every year in the U.S., $1.5 trillion of single family residences transact, generating over $120 billion of fees in a process that has changed little in decades. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety and is filled with uncertainty and hassle.

Orchard offers a modern alternative, making one of life's biggest decisions -- the sale and purchase of a home –stress free, fair and simple.

Orchard launched in 2017 and was previously known as Perch. The company is headquartered in New York City, has 150+ employees and has grown 10x year over year. We have raised over $300 million in financing from top tier investors including: Firstmark, Accomplice, Navitas and Juxtapose.

Orchard is looking for a professional, responsive, organized, tech-savvy, and customer-centric Licensed Listing Agent to help us market and sell the homes we own throughout Texas, Colorado and Georgia. This listing agent role is a full-time salaried position with benefits. 

The Responsibilities

Work full-time in our downtown Austin office Monday - Friday. Ensure each house we sell is promptly listed and properly marketed. Work to ensure a smooth transition from renovations to actively listed. Diligently gather valuable feedback post showings and work with manager to adjust accordingly.
