Real Estate Accounting & Controller Jobs

"Accounting and Control in real estate is bigger than just number crunching"

Accounting and control personnel are regularly involved in either auditing or tax with regard to the business operations of a real estate company. It is their responsibility to maintain records of current financial operations, maintain compliance, and review the viability of new ventures with regard to accounting and tax implications. Specifically, a controller is a more senior position and involves key oversight and decision making over business decisions on a more strategic level than a staff accountant would be asked to provide. A well-functioning accounting and control staff will not only keep the books in order, but will be a strategic resource for maximizing profits through proper financial structure.
