Did you know that you could hire an assistant online to help you with your real estate administrative tasks?
There are MANY virtual assistants that you can hire online to help so that you could focus on the selling and not so much the paperwork which can sometimes get overwhelming!
Many virtual assistants are generalists, meaning they do any sort of administrative work, but there are also specialists in the area of social media, blogging, and even real estate.
You can usually find them on job posting sites such as Upwork, People Per Hour, or Fancy Hands.
Sure there are assistants that work in the actual real estate offices but these workers are generally hired to work with various agents. They are not hired to work with a specific agent.
If you are a busy agent, you can get a lot more done by actually hiring your own assistant.
Specific tasks could they help with (but not limited to) include:
- creating and maintaining a contact list of all clients and potential clients
- confirming appointments
- research properties for you
- creating marketing material
- follow up with clients
- create content for a website you own
- posting your listings and other helpful information on your social media profiles
- setup a social media campaign to help you reach more clients
I'll bet there is more you could add to this list!
Do you know anyone that loves the field of real estate but doesn't quite want to be a realtor?
Perhaps they could become an assistant online for agents and you could hire them for help.
You could direct them towards becoming a virtual assistant without experience. This can be done part-time or full-time.
Anyone can become an assistant but to do this online, it's an ideal job for stay-at-home moms and also for college students because of the flexibility.
The idea of hiring help online is not new but it is quite new for finding assistants for agents.
In conclusion, if you find yourself overwhelmed with paperwork or even if you want some help with your marketing, consider hiring a virtual assistant.
They could help you establish an online presence with social media platforms, organize a list of contact information for past, current, and future clients, and so much more.
What kind of things would you ask for help with if you had an assistant just for you?
