Delegating Tasks to a Real Estate Virtual Assistant
As a real estate agent, could you use two extra hours a day? If you delegate repetitive and mundane tasks to a real estate assistant, you can gain two hours and more each day depending on which tasks you assign to them. However, there is a true art to delegating tasks to a REVA, and this is because when it is done properly it saves you time. When it is not done properly, it costs you time and money.
Delegation is a Great Relief
When approached with the right attitude, delegation is a great relief to any business owner. The art of delegation:
♦ Frees time for what we consider important in life.
♦ Allows us to meet their deadlines and to reach our goals
Admittedly, it’s not easy to pass your work to someone else. You’ve worked hard to be where you are, and your real estate business is your baby. You’ve nurtured your leads and don’t feel that you can trust anyone else with their care. Perhaps, you are uninformed at how efficient a professional real estate virtual assistant can be.
What Can Be Delegated
As real estate agents, you can delegate many of your time-consuming tasks that take time away from your clients:
♦ Transaction Coordination
How Is This Accomplished
This can all be accomplished, within a short period of time, when systems are put into place with the right real estate assistant. This will involve laying out what needs to be done and what is important to you; and then creating checklists. No need to worry, as your online assistant can easily create the checklist for you.
At that point, you can easily see if the tasks you have been assigned have been completed and will reap the benefits of a well running office.
Isn’t It Expensive?
Perhaps one of the biggest myths that have circulated regarding virtual executive assistants is that they are expensive. The reason behind the objection is that many do not realize that there is no need to hire a VA for 40 hours a week. In fact, we can be hired for as little as 1 hour a week or for a 1 hour project. I charge clients to the minute. That means that if I work for 15 minutes, you will only be charged for 15 minutes work.
