Hiring a REVA is Like Buying a Second Computer[break][/break]
It’s not a new trend. Realty Times featured an article on hiring a real estate virtual assistant in 1999. The advantages have been felt by many busy real estate agents. In fact, many successful real estate agents are coming to realize that hiring a REVA is like buying a second computer.
How so? Professional Real Estate Virtual Assistants can quickly care for work that must be systematically cared for. The process is started with the first consultation where they discuss the individual needs of the Realtor they are meeting with.
At that point, a package is prepared with the potential client in mind that will address all of their business necessities. From there, it’s just a matter of putting the system in place, and it is easily understood that hiring a REVA is like buying a second computer.
Can You Do It All?
Many new and seasoned agents realize quickly that they can’t do it all. Even with an in-house Transaction Coordinator, some important tasks can be quickly forgotten.
However, when you have a REVA working with you on your team, they can create a system that will be foolproof if it is followed as planned. There is no need to buy another computer, as they carry out all of planning and care for your projects from their own computer.
A professional real estate virtual assistant can care for any admin work that usually slips through the cracks. If it can be cared for online, your REVA can care for the task.
Keep Your Clients in the Loop
Many times this is all your buyers and sellers are calling about. A well planned email that is systematically sent to each buyer or seller can cut down on questions, phone calls, and emails requesting information about their transaction.
Listing Coordination Can Be Outsourced
One of my favorite REVA tasks is helping agents with the marketing of their property. Many agents don’t care to spend the time to enter all of your listings into listing aggregators and single property sites. Therefore, more and more savvy real estate agents are making one quick call to their real estate virtual assistant who cares for their Listing Coordination.
Social Media Marketing
Admittedly, this is boring to many business owners who would rather spend their time with their clients than on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, or LinkedIn. Setting up your social media accounts and making regular status updates is easily delegated to your online assistant. If this isn’t your thing, then pass the work on.
