Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Virtual Assistant
Realtors want speed and they need to be dynamic and up to date.
Most of the time real estate work is independent and you’re a one-man army.
Hiring a real estate virtual assistant makes things easier and faster because you can basically assign them any time-consuming administrative tasks you want.
Here’s a breakdown of the tasks you can delegate to a Real Estate VA:
- Social Media – The best way to reach the largest audience possible is to hang out where they are already at — social media. You can delegate this task to your VA.
- Data Entry – If you use your VA for data entry tasks, they can conduct some analysis much faster and generally if there are any customers you don’t want to contact anymore you can segregate them much easily. And keeping yourself organized in general helps you track leads much faster and in a more viable way.
- Encode your MLS – Track properties and listings much faster.
- Appointment Setting – If you have a hard time checking on all of your prospects, then you can delegate this activity to your VA.
- Email Management – Too busy to check all your emails? Your VA can check these meticulously and make sure that viable leads are replied to and follow-up questions are asked.
- Chat Support – Your VA will attend to any potential client concerns even if it’s as simple as your clients asking about your whereabouts.
- Lead Generation – If you want your real estate apparatus to function efficiently, you can hire a real estate virtual assistant for this task. They can start looking for prospects across the channels which you choose.
- Research Assistant – If you wanna learn about what houses your potential buyers are looking out for, then research is a part of this whole task and YES, your VA can do that for you.
- Cold Calling – They can make phone calls also and arrange meetings with your clients. Or if you’re busy and you have a shift in schedule they can also accommodate those changes much easily.
