I guess some of you might equate working with a virtual assistant to going to Vegas and gambling. The truth is that you would do better to look at it as being more akin to buying stocks on the stock market.
I say that because working with a professional real estate virtual assistant is truly an investment. Let’s say you buy 20 hours or “shares” of the time the virtual assistant has available each month. When you work with a professional you have the opportunity to increase your investment. Yes. You have the opportunity to increase the money you just invested.
So how do you do that? You take those 20 hours that you might normally invest in your marketing, client relationship management, email management, etc. and you instead invest that time into working with clients. That will give you 5 additional hours each week to work with clients. IF you actually invest that time into increasing your client base by prospecting or working with existing clients you should gain no less than one listing or a contract with a buyer.
When you sell the listing or close with your buyer, you have increased your income by one commission, which we can reasonably say would at the very least triple the investment you made in partnering with a real estate virtual assistant.
Now to be honest, I would honestly expect you to make more than one additional sale per month, but I’m just lowballing you so that you can see the minimum return you can get for this investment. Add to that, the bonus that many real estate agents don’t realize, your investment in a real estate virtual assistant is a tax deduction. You get to claim what you invest.
Will your shares on the stock market give you that kind of return? I doubt it really. Or at least not quite so quickly. And buying shares on the stock market isn’t going to build your business either. Working with a real estate virtual assistant will build your business and it’s one of the best investments you can make in your career today!
