- Delegating- The first crucial step is pinpointing exactly what you need your Real Estate Virtual Assistant for. Even if it is just a few tasks, to begin with, like managing emails or handling your social media. If you can identify which tasks you want off your plate so you can focus on the things that only you can do, you have an excellent place to start. We always recommend that you try out something called the Sticky Challenge. For a few weeks, spend time writing down each job you accomplish within your business, note how long it takes you and identify whether it is directly revenue producing or not. Now, calculate the time it takes to do these tasks. From here you will be able to determine which areas you can delegate to your Virtual Assistant.
