Are you being held back by the multitude of details that must be handled outside your usual selling activities? Effective real estate agent management requires admitting when you need help. You may wish to consider hiring a virtual assistant to boost productivity and make better use of your time.

Virtual assistant? You mean like Siri or Cortana?
No. A virtual assistant is simply a personal assistant that helps you from a remote location with anything from social media and web errands to closings and paperwork.

Do I really need a virtual assistant?
Lead generation, lead conversion, and business support are essential to your business, and even the most successful real estate agent management professionals struggle juggling these tasks. If the following describe you, a virtual assistant can help:

• You’re a control freak.
As any successful CEO will tell you, you do not have to do it all yourself to get the job done right. Doing something outside your skill level means paying yourself top dollar for amateur results. Take off your web designer hat, hand it to a pro, and go sell homes.

• You forgot. Again.
When things start falling through the cracks that’s a surefire sign you need help. Get it now before your lead generation and closing activities suffer.

But I have an on-site assistant…
On-site assistants only work for those who are gifted motivators and managers – and they cost more. Working with virtual assistants is nothing like working with an on-site assistant and should NOT be treated that way.

Virtual assistants require no support, space, or equipment, and you only pay for the services you use: A special project, updating listings, transaction management – you name it. All it takes is hiring the right professional.
