Compliance Manager, ACE

SFR3 is a boutique real estate investment fund that will acquire and renovate more than $3B worth of single-family homes by 2024. The Fund specializes in renovating distressed homes, using software-driven operations to scale across dozens of markets concurrently with a lean, nimble team. Today the Fund owns 10,000+ homes in 30+ metros, and its portfolio growth is among the fastest of any fund of any size in the country.

About the team

The compliance team’s mandate is to maintain a steady stream of properties ready to move into renovation - and to do so with speed, quality and at enormous scale. This includes everything from ensuring proper permits and registrations are filed with each municipality, to pro-actively working with cities to ensure every home in our portfolio is compliant. The team manages a pipeline of functions and processes to get hundreds of SFR3 homes ready for renovation every month, and keep them compliant throughout renovation.


You are a “hands on” entrepreneurial operator, understanding that massive, step-change improvement only happens when you pair data-driven insights & sound strategy with old fashioned roll-up-your-sleeves-and-do-it tactical execution.

You’re thrilled at any opportunity to face a new business challenge – hitting ambitious goals, analyzing data, and uncovering problems. You obsess over details without losing sight of the big picture. You also have a nose for inefficient processes - using data to guide you to the truth - at which point you relentlessly pursue fixing it. Plus you just work harder and smarter than everyone else and motivate the teams around you to raise the bar.

What you’ll do

Help SFR3 win by managing & executing production activities so that we can deliver ‘reno ready’ homes that our field teams don’t have to worry about lingering violations on.
