Get Your Online Real Estate Assistant to Help you with your Real Estate Business

If you’re like most real estate agents, you went into the business to meet with clients, list and sell properties, and make money. Once you got into the business, you discovered that a lot of paperwork and detailed work is necessary to list and sell those homes.

And, if you’re like most real estate agents, all this detail work is a distraction. You don’t enjoy it, and you’d just like to get it over with and move on to the things you enjoy — like meeting with clients who want to sell their home or commercial building.

Guess what? You could put an end to having to manage all those details. You can stop having to do quite so much paperwork. Your knowledgeable virtual real estate assistant can handle many of these tasks for you. They can handle tasks that don’t require your expertise, so you can focus on those tasks you enjoy. They can free up your time so that you can grow your business and earn more money.

What tasks can an online real estate assistant perform?

Who is a Real Estate Virtual Assistant

A real estate virtual assistant is a professional administrative person. Because their focus is on administrative tasks, they typically can perform them more efficiently than you can. The specific tasks are up to you and your needs. Still, they could include scheduling appointments, ordering supplies, managing your webpage and social media, uploading listings, and performing lead generation, marketing, and customer service tasks. They may also be able to handle operational tasks such as business communications or data management.

How can a virtual assistant help me grow my business and make more money?

From my experience, we are more productive when we do things we love. Once you rid your plate of the tedious tasks, you’ll have more time to focus on what you love. Not only will you have more time to list properties and close deals, but you’ll accomplish more every hour that you spend on these more exciting tasks. If you list more properties and close more deals, you’ll make more money.

At the same time, you’ll save money by engaging a virtual real estate assistant rather than hiring an in-house employee. You won’t need to pay for health insurance and vacations or find and equip a workstation. You won’t need to spend time providing training and onboarding. You just need to give them a list of tasks and some software to communicate with you, and they are off and running. Because virtual assistants depend upon your continued business and your referrals, they will often provide better service than an employee.

Also, let’s face it. Someone outside your firm can often see ways you can work more effectively than someone inside it. An online real estate assistant can offer you a fresh perspective on what’s working well and what could work better in your real estate business.

Virtual assistants also allow you to scale up when business is booming and scale down when business is slower. Scaling like this is difficult if the assistant is on your payroll.

Will my personality mesh with my virtual assistants?

Having a virtual assistant that you work well with is critical to accomplishing tasks together. Even though the assistant is virtual, you’ll still be able to interview and choose the virtual assistant that matches your style.

Go Ahead, Ask for Help

Sometimes we see asking for help as a weakness. We want to do everything ourselves. But that’s not healthy for you or your business. Delegating tasks to your virtual real estate assistant makes dollars and “sense” for your business. Don’t be shy! Go ahead. Ask your virtual assistant for help, and you’re on your way to the business life and personal life you’ve always dreamed of.
