RES is currently accepting applications for the position of Land Representative, based out of our Lafayette, LA office.
The mission: RES has been actively growing its operations throughout the US and the Western region is no exception. As a result, the Land team evolved and is looking for entry-level team members to support projects throughout California, Central Valley, and Oregon. Your main task in the first six months is to support the team with research and leg work, learn RES software programs, grow into the position, and eventually, take on your own clients and projects.
As such, you will be developing relationships with prospective landowners and community business leaders, thus securing property rights, and enabling project realization. It involves interaction with many of the RES functions, including sales, regulatory, and field operations teams, analysts, and in-house counsel – thus, communication skills are key to success.
Around 80% of your time, you will be working on sourcing for new deals - researching suitable landowners, contacting them, and updating software reports. You will be then assisting in negotiations with the selected landowners on their properties, which can involve overnight stays.
Around 10% of your time will be dedicated to assisting in pre-acquisition and negotiation processes. You will also assist in due diligence items including survey and title and assist in the preparation and organization of closing documents. Some assistance will be required for the development of projects in the proposal process for projects in different phases.
Around 10% of your time, you will be doing analytical work - analyzing property data and land records for the suitability of restoration sites, running numbers associated with the acquisition of new land assets, and working with management to prepare and maintain monthly cash flow statements, and assisting in creating preliminary project budgets.
