Real Estate is one of the most competitive businesses in the market. Agents have to work twice as hard to penetrate, be visible and make their presence known physically and virtually to get market share in order to generate sales.
The drawback for most professionals is that they do not have the reinforcement needed to expand their business while at the same time running on their existing trade.
You can have a real estate virtual assistant or a team of virtual assistants (VA) to help you simplify your overwhelming tasks by bringing your property investment business effectively to a new level.
Our online assistants have in-depth knowledge of realtor terminologies, the ins and outs of the trade and are trained to help support the daily tasks of:
- Running/expanding your realty investment business
- Handle incoming/outgoing calls and screen buyers/sellers
- Run comps, market your properties
- Utilize pay per click campaigns
- Search engine optimization,
- Place Craigslist ads
- Fill out questionnaires
- Assist in promoting your business and properties you have for sale using Web 2.0
- Social media
- Creating and distributing videos on your properties for sale
A real estate agent assistant is a cost-effective solution to add support to your business, giving you the time to focus on more important things like assisting your clients, managing your finances, generating more income that leads to more profit.
As an investor, one should understand the importance of delegating tasks. Soon you will need someone to assist you with specific projects as your business grows.
“I’ve used virtual assistants over the years on Craigslist. Most people spend their time getting around the Craigslist spam filters but my VA found potential leads that just need to be contacted. So, my virtual assistant spend months calling on properties that were listed for rent. The idea was that many of these listings were from mom and pop landlords who owned rental properties and would be interested in buying more.”

“Having an assistant is one of the best investments you’ll make as a realty entrepreneur. A good assistant will help you to generate much more money than you are paying (bringing you a rate of return that would make any investor jealous). I would never have experienced all of the benefits if I had been stuck trying to do it all myself (and failing)”
