7 ways a virtual assistant service is a game changer for your small business
The post-pandemic trend towards virtual and hybrid work has presented some interesting challenges for Real Estate agents and brokers, who have traditionally relied on live client interactions and property showings. But the industry has adapted and evolved. Many aspects of the job are now being handled virtually; even home showings are more often being conducted through virtual online tours.
Virtual Real Estate assistants bring years of industry expertise, and they understand how to support Real Estate teams in an online environment. Here are four Real Estate tasks you can outsource to a virtual assistant:
Managing administrative tasks can be challenging if you’re working independently or in a small team. Virtual Real Estate assistants are well-equipped to manage the day-to-day tasks that come with being a Real Estate professional. Creating and publishing listings, managing client lists, producing routine paperwork, office supply management and distributing marketing materials are just a few of the tasks virtual assistants can support.
Virtual real estate assistants know how to research properties, property owners, public records and legal names, and they can readily compile reports on local and national Real Estate information. Most Real Estate data is readily available online, and virtual assistants are experts in navigating the tools and resources required to access it.
Most virtual real estate assistants are experienced in client-facing roles, and they understand the value of delivering high-quality, consistent service to ensure success and client retention. They can handle phone inquiries from clients and other Realtors, coordinate property access for service providers, and book and manage showings and appointments.
Producing and curating social media content that is effective and eye-catching can have a tremendous impact on your business. In some cases, our virtual real estate assistants can also manage your digital and social marketing platforms to help engage and grow your client base.
Creating original content and managing social media accounts is time-consuming and requires creative expertise. Be sure to let us know if you’re looking for a Real Estate VA who’s also a skilled content creator so we can find the best match for you. Depending on the size of your office and the volume of content you want to publish, we may sometimes recommend allocating part of your subscription towards an additional VA who specializes in social media.
