The Real Estate Virtual Assistant – How We Can Help
Posted by admin on Apr 26, 2013
More and more real estate agents are relying on their virtual assistants to support them to ensure that their listings get maximum exposure.
The time that you spend prospecting and following up with your buyers and sellers can eat away at your day if you have a big enough client base. A REVA, real estate virtual assistant, can give you back some of the hours lost caring for basic admin work.
Why Some Don’t Utilize a Virtual Assistant
Many agents choose to juggle all of their responsibilities themselves. Why? Some of them will admit that it’s hard to give up control of their business. They realize that in doing so, they have given up control of their lives.
With each listing or lead comes great responsibility. Your client expects you to care for their listing as if it were your only one. At the same time, is this possible when you have three or four listings you have to care for, as well as representing buyers on some of your transactions? The short answer is no.
Why Some are Utilizing a Virtual Assistant
Agents are choosing to put aside their fears and use the services of a virtual assistant. As they do so, they are finding that they have more time and their business has reached a more productive level.
They’re choosing to do so for countless reasons:
◊ They can’t care for all of the aspects of their business efficiently
◊ Their leads are slipping through the cracks and working with other Realtors
◊ Their own work has become substandard because of a lack of time
◊ They want to run their business – not have the business run them
Once you have made the decision, what’s next? Delegate everything that needs to be done that you can’t care for. This can be everything from listing coordination to blogging; from contact management to social media management.
If it needs to be done and you don’t have the time, your real estate virtual assistant can help.
Do you have enough time to properly market all of you listings? If the answer is no, then it’s a win-win solution to use the services of a real estate virtual assistant.
