How to Save More Time With a Real Estate Virtual Assistant
Ask yourself honestly: how much time do you spend on low-level tasks you could easily delegate to someone else? When you think about it, the amount of time you've spent on such tasks may be frightening. Thankfully, there are some excellent virtual assistants for real estate out there, which can make your life a whole lot easier.
However, choosing an excellent virtual contractor is easier said than done. These roles for real estate businesses require excellent communication, organizational skills, and real estate industry knowledge. Unfortunately, many real estate professionals start work with a virtual assistant only to find it's more hassle than it's worth, where they spend more time teaching and micromanaging than boosting productivity and freeing up their time.
What if you could work with a contractor already trained for working in U.S. real estate roles with the essential skills to genuinely help you? Well, you can! Thanks to our VPM Academy, you have access to a professional real estate virtual assistant that can help you save time and reduce the effort when incorporating them into your business as productive team members. Here's what you need to know.
How Do We Train Real Estate Virtual Assistants?
We train real estate virtual assistants through our VPM Academy. Whether a virtual contractor has some real estate experience or has never been involved in the industry, our courses help equip VAs on our platform with the knowledge and skills they need to work well for real estate agencies, brokerages, wholesalers, real estate investors, and even house flippers.
Our free online courses include informative videos teaching remote assistants all they need to know to be effective when working in the U.S. real estate industry. In other words, it's the exact information they need to help you grow, scale, and achieve your dream business goals.
Why is Real Estate Training Important?
Real estate training ensures a remote assistant has the knowledge and relevant skills to help you and your business. Here are some main reasons real estate training is vital (and why we prioritize training for every VA on our platform).
Delegate More Meaningful Tasks to Your Remote Team
The right training means choosing a commercial real estate virtual assistant or a VA for residential real estate tasks through VPM Solutions reduces the potential that you'll spend time and resources teaching your new team member about the industry. Instead, your remote team member can genuinely assist you with meaningful real estate-specific tasks soon after onboarding.
You can delegate tasks like email correspondence or social media management and allow virtual contractors to handle more complex tasks such as bookings, listing management, transaction coordination, scheduling, and working with tenants.
Better Efficiency and Productivity (Sooner Rather Than Later)
One of the best benefits of working with a well-trained real estate virtual assistant is increased productivity soon after they start working for your company. For instance, you could spend an hour responding to basic email queries, whereas a real estate VA could tackle that while you get into something you could be doing to grow your business.
Moreover, remote contractors that have passed courses in the VPM Academy reduce the time you need to train new assistants to get them up to speed with industry specifics.
Reduce the Risk of Choosing the Wrong Virtual Assistant
You might have already experienced recruiting a virtual assistant and going through your entire onboarding process, only to learn they don't have as much experience as they led on. Or, equally frustrating, you could have an experienced virtual assistant, but they are unfamiliar with the U.S. real estate industry.
You wasted too much time going back, teaching, fixing things, and generally experiencing a more costly process with a virtual team member that never works well for your company. Thankfully this is something we have alleviated by offering training and certifications to virtual assistants through our VPM Academy. Training VAs before you choose your ideal candidate reduces the risk of adding team members that don't have the experience you need.
Choose From Multiple Candidates
Another massive benefit to recruiting your virtual assistant through VPM Solutions is that you can hand-pick the candidates best suited to your business. You'll pick from thousands of trained and tested virtual professionals to increase the chances of working with the perfect fit and building an ongoing relationship.
Unfortunately, many other real estate virtual assistant companies don't offer the same training level. It's just one of the many things that set VPM Solutions apart from other companies offering VAs. This standard of free training for remote assistants allows you to connect with the most suitable candidates and integrate them as quickly and effectively as possible into your business.
