Real Estate Sales Assistant: Job Description, Salary, & Role

A real estate sales assistant works with one or more agents to support them in their commercial or residential sales duties. Hiring a qualified candidate for this role can improve your bottom line by handling administrative tasks. Through this, your agents have more time to meet with buyers and sellers.
Real estate agents enjoy meeting with others and working on deals, but most dislike administrative details. There are many top sellers who lack attentiveness to details. Having someone to take care of the administrative details, can motivate agents and encourage more outstanding production.

What is a Real Estate Sales Assistant
A real estate sales assistant works collaboratively with other sales team members, doing administrative tasks that improve sales or customer service. They can perform marketing tasks, schedule appointments, and conduct follow-up calls. They can also create and maintain sales databases and help coordinate open houses. They can optimize your website for SEO to reach more potential customers. Essentially, they do whatever they can to assist to sale real estate.

What is the salary of a Real Estate Sales Assistant?

Several factors determine a competitive and fair real estate assistant sales salary. Experience, education, and job duties are parts of the equation. However, the primary determinant of wages is location because the location determines the cost of living. If you are in an industrialized Western nation, you can save a considerable amount of money. This is by hiring a virtual real estate sales assistant who lives and works in a low-cost location.
A ShoreAgent real estate sales assistant is based in the Philippines, with low labor costs and a competent, well-educated workforce. A virtual real estate sales assistant based in the Philippines is an excellent value because they have the necessary skills and work ethic. Yet they cost only a fraction of what a local assistant will cost.

What is the average salary for a Real Estate Sales Assistant?

The following table provides a reference point for the annual average salary earned by real estate assistants in various countries.
When you look at the table, consider that the salary amounts listed for most countries do not include additional costs such as government charges, employer contributions, supplemental insurance, or the cost per employer for equipment. The salaries listed for the Philippines, however, do include employment benefits, government charges, and ShoreAgents’ fees.
As you can see, the cost of a ShoreAgents virtual real estate sales assistant in the Philippines is about one-third to one-half of what you’d pay in most other countries. Said another way, you could hire at least two virtual real estate sales assistants for the price of one based locally.

Where to hire a Real Estate Sales Assistant?

Where to hire a Real Estate Sales Assistant
You could hire an assistant locally, but that probably isn’t your best option. Recruiting and hiring an assistant requires a lot of time and effort. All that time is time away from making sales, which are the lifeblood of your agency.
Also, you’ll have to be sure you follow labor regulations and that you find a place for the assistant to work in your office. Engaging a local real estate sales assistant requires:
  • Developing an accurate and comprehensive real estate assistant job description
  • Posting the job description online and advertising the job locally and online
  • Scanning applications, many of which are from unqualified applicants
  • Interviewing applicants
  • Conducting background checks
  • Negotiating salary
  • Buying a computer and finding desk space
  • Hiring someone
