With all the advances in communications and technology (smart phones, tablets, websites, cloud technologies and more) we have the ability to communicate with anyone… at any time, in any place. The Jetson’s of the future are here and now in the Real Estate Industry! Today, Virtual Assistants who specialize in Real Estate can deliver seamless service and support from anywhere in the country using these tools and technologies. It’s a match made in “the cloud” for mobile real estate agents who are working from home and on the go.
Here are 5 reasons why it pays to hire a professional Real Estate Virtual Assistant:
AnotherME provides a team of specialists; whether you need support in just one part of your business or a whole team of assistants to support you! Real Estate VA’s know and understand the specific tasks associated with Listing Coordination, Closing Coordination/Transaction Management, Database Management, Just Listed/Just Sold Postcards and even Social Media Support (like setting up your profiles, setting up tools for managing social media sites, and research information for blogs and writing blog posts) plus so much more.
How much time are you spending on “detail work” on your to-do list? Why invest in payroll, benefits, insurance, etc. when you could be delegating that money to building your business. AnotherME Real Estate VA’s are contracted professionals, not employees. You pay for work completed (not for idle time, vacations, sick leave or absenteeism). There’s no need to make room in the office for an extra person. Real Estate VAs are motivated to do their best for you at all times because their business success depends on your satisfaction.
Customized Support for Your Needs
Whether you need Postcards mailed, a Listing Package, or help with your Closings, a VA can perform these duties. Why spend hours on paperwork that can be done by a VA with Real Estate experience when you could be building your clientele or, more importantly, spending time with your family? Do not miss out on that baseball game or recital to finish that closing by midnight. Know that it was already done by a competent professional, your Real Estate VA.
Focus on Your Strength
Why waste time on tasks that are not your primary objective? Successful Real Estate agents find and hire the right people for the right job; that’s called Leverage! Have the peace of mind that your deadlines will be met by a VA who knows the Real Estate industry and is familiar with Real Estate programs and websites (MLS, Top Producer, ePropretySites, RealBird, Wise Agent, Realtor.com just to name a few).
Why a VA and not a Temp or a $10/hr Teenager
The VA takes the role of a temp and elevates it to the status of a Team Player. Having a Real Estate VA eliminates problems with staffing solutions and here’s why:
- Temps are seeking full-time employment not short term assignments
- Temps are a transient solution to long term needs.
- Temporary solutions can be expensive ones
- It takes too much time and money to train a temp.
- Temps are not committed to the success of your business
- Most Temps are interested in the paycheck and not the tasks
Knowing you have a competent professional handling the administrative tasks vital to your real estate business gives you more time to focus on your clients, thereby finding their dream home creating success for your business. Delegating administrative tasks to an experienced AnotherME Virtual Assistant gives you more time to grow your business and generate profit.
