What’s the Point of a Virtual Assistant?

There are never enough hours in the day, we get it. We have so much on our plate, it’s almost impossible to accomplish it all in the limited 8-hour work day. Despite all of our to-do lists and the time we’ve allocated to get some stuff done, it always seems like we’re crunched for time.

Our very own, Troy Muljat can relate to the hectic schedule of being a commercial real estate professional, that’s why even he recommends hiring a virtual assistant to help keep him focused on the tasks that really matter.

There are a number of benefits that come along with hiring a virtual assistant when you’re a commercial real estate broker, some of which include affordability and overall reliability to get some of those tedious tasks completed.

Now you may be asking, “what exactly is a virtual assistant?” As defined by Kabbage a virtual assistant is, ” a highly skilled professional who offers business support services virtually.” What makes a virtual assistant different from your everyday office assistant is that your virtual assistant works virtually offsite from a remote location.

Still not sure if a virtual assistant is the way to go. Check out our list of benefits when hiring a virtual assistant before you decide to opt-out.

 

Affordability

Especially if you’re just starting out and allocating the funds to hire a full-time office assistant just isn’t an option at the moment. Hiring a virtual assistant is more affordable than having to go through the hiring and training process of a full-time office assistant. This allows you to pay your virtual assistant for the work they’ve competed rather than on an hourly basis. Many virtual assistant companies offer a number of different packages for different price points. These packages can range and consist of varying features, from; the number of tasks you can request a month to the complexity of these tasks.

 

Skilled

Virtual assistants are highly skilled in a wide range of fields, this way you can find the one best suited for your commercial real estate needs. Whether you need someone to blog, manage social media, or code your website. There is a virtual assistant out there with the skill set you need to help you get the job done. There are even virtual assistants that can help  you complete the small tasks in life, like; book a flight, make reservations, and more.

 

Extra Valuable Time

Hiring on a virtual assistant frees up that extra time needed to really focus on the tasks that really matter. Rather than spending the tedious effort and time researching and compiling all the facts to write a blog post, hiring a virtual assistant to do this work for you gives you back that precious time needed to work on and nurture those deal closing leads.
