Virtual Assisting in the Real Estate World...

Services for Real Estate Pros with Independent Projects, LLC
Virtual Assisting can be beneficial to those that don’t have the means to hire a permanent part or full time employee, and for those who don’t want to be bothered with paying unemployment compensation, employee taxes, offer benefits or create the space for the employee to work efficiently and effectively. I can do the very same functions as personal assistant or an office manger in my own home as well as in-house in the Philadelphia area a few hours a week to catch up on the week’s tasks. However, I would only charge for the work completed and there are no membership fees like those of the standard virtual assistant websites out there today, so this saves our clients thousands of dollars over the course of a year. This also allows a personal virtual assistant to get to know your business just like an actual employee, thus setting us apart from the other VA websites where you could potentially work with a few different virtual assistants for different projects. As a virtual assistant, I would be able to assist a business owner or Independent Real Estate professional, for instance in many of the same areas as an administrative assistant. Creating PowerPoint presentations for meetings, updating MLS listings, making travel arrangements, scheduling and confirming apts./meetings, writing up minutes of the meetings via conference calls, creating letters and mail merge documents in word and creating and implementing excel spreadsheet data. Each and every client of Independent Projects is provided with an outsourcing agreement that clearly defines the expectations of the services provided and details the importance of client confidentiality. Remember: Every business owner can do anything, but simply can’t do EVERYTHING! We can take those tedious, but important tasks off of our clients’ hands so that they can spend more time concentrating on other ventures or just spend more time with their family!
