Maine Real Estate Virtual Assistants Travel and Enjoy Life

Oct 10, 2007
Virtual assistants are not waiting on the arrival of their retirement years in order to travel and enjoy life. They are enjoying many of the things we all long to enjoy right now.

A virtual assistant is a self employed professional who acts as an office assistant for bustling real estate agents, via the internet. They perform much of the same work as any office assistant. However, they are self employed professionals and are not considered employees of the real estate agencies they perform work for.

They are in control of setting their weekly work schedules. This gives them leeway to work one week and travel the next. They may even choose to take a laptop computer with them so that they can travel for longer periods of time and have the finances to fund more travel.

The internal office work of a VA is an integral part to the quality, volume, and financial returns. But to create this integral internal office work, the professional has to be out mixing with the people who buy, sell, and invest in real estate.

Organization is imperative for a virtual assistant to be successful. This means utilizing tools such as Outlook to organize emails with rules and have a customized CRM system for prospects and leads. Otherwise you can get in the weeds so to speak very easily and customer service will take the hit.

This arrangement works well for both parties. Outsourcing office work to a real estate virtual assistant is effective time management for the real estate professional. Expenses associated with salaried employees like insurance and retirement plans are bypassed, and the agent has just opened up their schedule for more mixing with real estate prospects.

The number one benefit of outsourcing to a VA is the leverage of time. Many agents do not build their business like a business. They try to do everything and this essentially holds them back and stunts their business growth.

The truth is a real estate agent has so many hats to wear that it is impossible for a single agent to grow and prosper without implementing systems, structures, and delegating responsibilities to someone other then themselves. A virtual assistant already has these systems in place.
