Real Estate Sales Assistant

A real estate sales assistant works with one or more agents to support them in their commercial or residential sales duties. A sales assistant can improve your bottom line by handling administrative tasks so that your agents have more time to meet with buyers and sellers. Agents enjoy meeting with others and working on deals, but most dislike administrative details. Many top sellers aren't particularly good at details either. Just having someone to take care of the administrative details may motivate agents and encourage greater production.

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 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 table below is a guide based on each country’s annual average real estate assistant salary.
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.

Can a Real Estate Sales Assistant work virtually?

Young Happy Asian Businesswoman
The answer is yes, as long as you’re willing to set up your processes and tools for success. You’ll also want to get a buy-in from the rest of your sales staff. However, gaining that buy-in will be accomplished once your team understands the benefits of the virtual assistant.
ShoreAgents is an offshore real estate staffing solutions firm. We are experienced in helping customers set up their operations so that they can gain the benefits of a virtual real estate sales assistant. The tools you’ll need depend on the tasks you want the assistant to perform. The tools could include the following:
  • A cloud-based task management tool to help you prioritize and manage the daily workload
  • A clearly defined job description
  • Clearly written processes

Local Real Estate Sales Assistant Vs. Virtual Real Estate Sales Assistant

Hiring a virtual real estate sales assistant offers many advantages over hiring a local real estate sales assistant.
Cost is a significant advantage if you hire offshore in a location such as the Philippines. You’ll receive quality support for your sales agents, but you’ll pay considerably less than you would for a local retail sales assistant.
The best real estate sales assistants have specialized marketing knowledge, including social media and search engine optimization techniques. They know how to use administrative software, including database tools. A virtual real estate sales assistant provided by ShoreAgents will have these specialized skills. They will also have some real estate knowledge, making them a treasured member of your team. ShoreAgents is the only BPO provider managed daily by an experienced real estate agency owner.
Hiring a local assistant requires a considerable amount of time and hassle. Once you hire the employee, you’ll also have to find a space for them to work and secure a desk and necessary equipment.
By contrast, working with us is easy. All you have to do is complete your company profile and a work order for your virtual real estate sales assistant. We’ll call you to ask questions to ensure we understand your business and what you need. Then we’ll present you with candidates to interview. All you need is to choose the best one for your business.  We do all the recruiting, and we supply the workspace and computer. Sign up today to get started.
Our real estate assistants work in a modern, comfortable work environment with other employees that hold similar roles at other companies. We provide them with ongoing education. Because real estate staffing is our business, we understand what we need to do to keep employees engaged.
The only potential downside to hiring a virtual real estate sales assistant is that you will need to make some slight adjustments to how you work as a team. You’ll want to include the assistant in sales meetings. And you’ll need to prioritize the tasks you want them to do using the task management tool. ShoreAgents can coach you through the adjustment process. After a short time, you’ll forget that you ever operated any other way.
The advantages of a virtual real estate sales assistant are significant. But, ultimately, the decision is yours. You decide whether the cost savings, specialized skills, ease, and better retention are worth changing a few aspects of your operation. If you’re ready, we can help you make the relationship work for your team.

Real Estate Sales Assistant Role

Here is a list of the principal duties you might assign to a real estate sale assistant. We’ve put a check next to each one that the assistant could do virtually with the proper technology. We’ve put a cross by those that someone must do in person. If some aspects of the task can be done virtually, but some require in-person work, we’ve put both a check and a cross.

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 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

Hiring at ShoreAgents in the Philippines

Also, consider that an excellent real estate sales assistant is valuable to your business. They will also be helpful to your competitor’s business. You might spend all the time and effort on hiring and training an assistant only to have them leave you for your competitor.
A better option is to partner with ShoreAgents. ShoreAgents saves you money because we are based in the Philippines, which has low labor costs. Outsourcing to the Philippines is also a smart option because the country offers a large, highly skilled workforce. Filipinos learn English in school and all official documents are written in English. And Filipinos are eager to work with foreign companies. The culture is similar to other nations with European histories, so you’ll experience very little cultural adjustment time.
ShoreAgents also makes hiring easy. We take care of meeting all the labor regulations. We also:
  • Help you develop the job description, advertise the job, and review applications. We provide finalists for you to interview.
  • Provide a welcoming, spacious, modern office where the sales assistant can feed on the energy of working with other virtual real estate assistants.
  • Provide a desk, computer, headphones, two monitors, and webCam
  • Provide continuing education
  • Offer our knowledge of the real estate business.
Because your assistant will receive ongoing training and work in such a welcoming environment, retention will also be good.
