Last night about 9PM, I was working on marketing a listing (Listing Coordination) for one of my clients. Why so late? I have a Team of four real estate Virtual Assistants that work with me. One of them is on vacation this week...something well deserved! And the husband of another is in the hospital. Understandably, she is not focused on her virtual assistant work this week either.
If these women were working as in-house assistants or maybe even working on other virtual assistant Teams, the real estate agent, whose work needed to be completed, would be working on the marketing his listing at 9PM in the evening. NOT so, is this case!!
Because this real estate agent hired myREassistant as his real estate Virtual Assistant, the work was getting done by other people on our Team. The agent didn't have to worry about it. He knew it would be taken care of.
Do I advertise I work at 9PM in the evening...heck NO. My advertised hours are 9-5 EST, Monday through Friday. But, when there is work to be done that is time sensitive, it gets done one way or the other.
I promise my clients a 24 hour turn around time for listing coordination. My 17 years as a licensed Realtor come into play here. I understand the urgency of getting marketing done in a timely manner and if I promise you we will do a job, by golly, we will get it done!
What happens with your work when your current assistant is on vacation, sick or taking personal days? Do you end up working at 9PM to get everything done? If so, give me a call at 757-271-6047 to learn how I can help with your listing coordination work as your real estate virtual assistant.
