Begin by writing a job description. Include all those non-productive tasks that take so much of your time without any immediate return, such as preparing promotional mailings, maintaining your customer database, searching for listings, and answering questions from prospective clients.
Potential candidates for your personal assistant job can be found among:
college students (certainly no problem finding computer skills in this category);
retirees (can be amongst the most dependable);
newly licensed salespersons (looking for experience);
more experienced salespersons (seeking the security of a salary and the stability of regular hours).
A classified ad in the Help Wanted classified section is an obvious step in recruitment, but also check with your local real estate association to see if they have a roster of trained or certified assistants who might meet your needs. Consider the each candidate's skills strength in relation to your primary needs. Do you need advertising experience? Writing and communication skills? Web design and maintenance? Or just good people skills?
