(from an award-winning Virtual Assistant and property investor)
A virtual assistant can add invaluable experience and support to estate agents and property investors.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve seen a shift to remote working, with many estate agents choosing to outsource their business tasks and processes to Virtual Assistants.
Tasks usually handled by an in-house PA or administrator (and even sales negotiators) can quite easily be done remotely. Handling new instructions, creating particulars, ordering boards, managing sales pipelines, inbox management, and many other tasks are being managed by Virtual Assistants throughout the UK.
Outsourcing to a VA not only provides flexibility for the client but is also a cost-effective way of working. By outsourcing to a property VA, the agent or investor can free up important time to focus on sales progression and further deals.
There are so many tasks within estate agency that can be outsourced. And there are assistants out there with the right skills, work ethic and property experience to add serious value to your business.
Here are just a few examples of what your estate agency or property business can outsource:
? Setting up and managing viewings
? Rightmove and Zoopla listings
? Typing up instructions
? Conducting vendor care and viewing feedback
? Negotiating offers
? Handling property enquiries
