This sounds great.  I am always open for training and new advise.  We have a part time assistant now to do very simple task for us.  Take care and have a great day.

Jeff - to answer your question, IREAA initially launched under the name CyberStarVA in 2004.  In 2006, we incorporated and changed the name to IREAA (International Real Estate Assistants Association) in order to appeal to all Real Estate Assistants, both in-house and virtual.

 

Abraham - IREAA has a Canadian division which is run by Pam Ivey in Wasaga Beach, Ontario.  The organization is actually based in East Texas.

 

Lisa - When finding an assistant, the best thing to do is to list all of the tasks that you do not want to handle any longer.    Divide these tasks by the categories they fall under  (Internet marketing, listing coordination, transaction management, general administrative) then find an assistant that specializes in that particular area.  Many agents use multiple assistants to get tasks done.   When you're ready to find a VA, visit IREAA and use their **F_R_E_E** RFP system. http://www.ireaa.com/register.php   The system allows you to anonymously post what type of help you are looking for.  Interested assistants respond to the RFP with information about themselves and their company.  You can review their comments and contact the assistants that you feel most closely match your requirements.

 

Regarding all of the other comments, I believe that IREAA is the best investment that you can make when it comes to your assistant.  It is a minor investment that will bring a wealth of knowledge and ideas to both you and your assistant.

I had heard about virtual assistants in the past and never gave it much though because I didn't really understand what they did.  My broker explained it to me the other day.  Now it all makes sense and in the future I may even contract with one.

IREAA permits clients and VAs to make contact, plus being a strong part of the VA information network. When your VA has questions, IREAA gives her/him that Sefety Net-work to post a question and get helpful information from a membership that is all speaking the same language.
