    5 Things for Success With Property Management Virtual Assistant Jobs

    IUpdated July 8, 2022.

    If you know where to look, you could find the right property management virtual assistant jobs that enable you to work from different parts of the world. However, finding jobs is only part of what you need for success!

    While being a VA is rewarding and flexible, you need a few critical habits and resources to meet the demands of a successful career as an independent contractor. With the right remote assistant jobs and these five critical things incorporated into your workspace and lifestyle, you're ready for success as a VA!

    1. Get a Stable Internet Connection

    Remember the unreliability of dial-up internet? If you're young enough, you might not have any idea what that is! 

    The world has come a long way concerning the internet. About 4.66 billion people, 59.5% of the global population, are active internet users. However, there is a difference between "being connected" to the internet and having a good internet connection that supports your remote working needs—no matter where you perform your role as a VA. 

    Successful virtual contractors can't depend on clients to provide internet services. Good internet connectivity enables you to perform your property management virtual assistant jobs with ease and should be part of your standard office setup. Make sure your internet service and speed allow you to easily communicate with your clients, share files, join video meetings, and deliver all work on time. 

    If your internet connection is unstable and interferes with your work, find a better alternative.

    2. Adapt To Fit Your Clients’ Schedules

    If you want to perform your remote assistant jobs effectively, it's important to be flexible with your schedule. Adapting to your clients' hours as your regular working hours demonstrates that you're available and part of the team—whether you work in their time zone or not.

    While being a virtual property management assistant offers plenty of flexibility for where and how you work, you may need to change your working hours to ensure you are available when your clients are. If your property management client needs you to be available after hours to handle tenant maintenance calls, make sure that works with your schedule and work-life balance before accepting an assignment that requires "off" hours.

    3. Maintain Professionalism during Video Calls

    Did you know that 78% of people rely on video calls for meetings? It’s safe to assume that the Covid-19 pandemic has also accelerated the adoption of video calls due to lockdowns.

    When conducting a video call, avoid being (or appearing) too casual. Stay professional throughout. Start by getting out of your pajamas and getting dressed in professional clothes! Your home office "dress code" can be business casual or casual, but make sure it's more professional than last night's jammies. 

    Also, ensure that the background on your video calls is not distracting and is appropriate for a business meeting. Keep noise levels to a minimum. Speak clearly, respectfully, and professionally during video meetings as you would in a face-to-face meeting.

    4. Be a Team Player

    Even if you work remotely as a virtual assistant, see yourself as part of the team. The role you play will affect the success of the property management company that contracts with you as a virtual assistant. Being a team player and finding ways to integrate well with the team can help you keep a long-term contract with valuable clients!

    Communicate with team members, ask questions, and engage in team-building exercises. Participate in collaborative tools such as Slack, Zoom, Dropbox, and Trello, depending on what your clients use to keep team members engaged. Be accountable at all times concerning your roles and responsibilities.

    5. Keep Training to Improve Your Skills

    No matter how good you are at your role as a property management VA, there's always more you can learn! Stay in demand and increase your value for property management virtual assistant jobs by improving your job and industry knowledge and skills.
