What is the salary of a Leasing Assistant?

The duties the property manager assigns to the leasing assistant vary widely, and so does the salary. Salaries also depend upon education and experience, as well as responsibilities.
A primary factor in determining salary is the location. Wages are higher or lower in specific areas depending upon the cost of living. You can save by hiring a virtual leasing assistant who works in a country with low labor costs.
ShoreAgents provides offshore property management staffing solutions in the Philippines. You can hire a leasing assistant in the Philippines at a fraction of the price you’d pay in many other countries.

Can a Leasing Assistant work virtually?

Happy Businesswoman
Now that you’ve seen the cost savings of hiring a virtual leasing assistant based in the Philippines, you’re probably wondering if the job can really be done virtually.
The answer is: Yes, as long as you make some preparations and have realistic expectations. You’ll need clear and defined policies and procedures and the right software tools. ShoreAgents is an offshore real estate staffing solutions company, and we can help you ensure you’ve got the policies and tools in place for success. We can even provide coaching for you and your leasing assistant to make sure the relationship works well.
Some tools you might need are:
  • A cloud-based task management software tool
  • Someone to drive the leasing assistant
  • A well-defined job description
  • Buy-in from current staff

Local Leasing Assistant Vs. Virtual Leasing Assistant

Hiring a virtual leasing assistant presents several advantages over hiring one based locally.
In most countries, hiring a local leasing assistant is significantly more expensive than hiring one offshore in the Philippines. Two factors go into the costs:
  • Salaries. The wages in offshore locations such as the Philippines are lower than in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and Singapore.
  • Office Costs. If you hire a local assistant, you’ll be responsible for finding and furnishing a workspace. You’ll need a desk, ergonomic chair, computer, and a phone or VOIP tool. If you partner with ShoreAgents to hire a leasing assistant, we furnish the workspace, including the desk, chair, a computer with two monitors, headphones, and a webcam.
You want a leasing assistant who understands property management and real estate. ShoreAgents is the only BPO provider managed daily by an experienced real estate agency owner. We have a network of contacts from which we can recruit qualified virtual leasing assistants.
Our environment also encourages their professional growth. We provide ongoing education. We also provide an environment where your virtual leasing assistant works with other leasing assistants. They’ll learn best practices that can improve the success of your property management business.
Hiring a local employee requires a significant time commitment.
However, the six-step hiring process is easy with ShoreAgents.
  • You sign up with us.
  • You complete your company profile, providing us with information about your business and its specific needs.
  • You submit a work order for your virtual leasing assistant.
  • You speak with a ShoreAgents team member to clarify your needs.
  • You interview candidates from among the small number we present.
  • You choose the candidate most suited to your company.
You don’t have to do any advertising or recruiting, nor do you have to cull through all those applications. We will do all that for you.
At ShoreAgents, our core business is real estate staffing, and we know what’s required to keep employees engaged. We provide opportunities for them to work with others in similar professions. We also provide continuing education about the real estate industry. We offer an excellent working environment, as well.
As long as you gain team buy-in, establish your procedures, invest in the right software tools, and are willing to be a little flexible, you can gain many benefits by hiring a virtual leasing assistant.
Local leasing assistant vs. virtual leasing assistant? The decision is yours.
If you value the cost savings, specialist skills, ease of hiring, and better retention probabilities and like the concept of a virtual leasing assistant, contact ShoreAgents. We can help you find the perfect virtual leasing assistant.

Where to hire a Leasing Assistant?

Young Lady with a Positive Expression
The choices are hiring locally or partnering with an offshore staffing firm to hire a virtual assistant.
Let’s examine each option. The local hiring option is certainly traditional. However, being traditional doesn’t always work well. In this case, to hire locally will require a significant time investment. Hiring also is not your core business function. You didn’t train as a real estate agency owner to hire people. You are trained to find commercial or residential properties and lease them. You enjoy doing commercial or residential deals. Any time you spend hiring is less time performing your core business function.
Once you hire someone locally, you’ll still have to find and equip office space and work hard to keep your leasing assistant engaged so they’ll stick with you.
Now, let’s look at the second option. The second option is partnering with ShoreAgents, a real estate staffing firm based in the Philippines. Staffing is our core business and we enjoy seeing how our work helps you succeed. Our hiring services include:
  • Helping you to clarify what you want in your ideal leasing assistant.
  • Recruiting and advertising for that assistant.
  • Presenting you with candidates to interview.
  • Providing a spacious, modern office where the property accountant works with others in similar roles for other companies.
  • Equipping the leasing assistant for success with a desk, computer, two monitors, a webcam, and headphones.
  • Sharing our knowledge of the real estate business through our founder and day-to-day director, Stephen Atcheler.

Hiring at ShoreAgents in the Philippines

Our location in the Philippines also provides many benefits in hiring. Filipinos speak and write fluent English and are eager to work with foreign companies. The government provides incentives for specialized training and education, which means the workforce is well qualified. The Philippines was ruled first by Spain and later by the United States so its culture shares similarities with European countries and with Canada, and the United States. Finally, the labor costs in the Philippines are a fraction of those in most Westernized countries.
ShoreAgents is an offshore real estate staffing company that knows what is required to run a profitable property management business. We understand your needs and can help ensure you find the right leasing assistant and develop a productive relationship.
We are ShoreAgents. We provide staff to support every niche within the real estate industry.
