Using Virtual Assistants for real estate

Hey all,

I'm thinking of implementing a virtual assistant as we ramp up marketing in our REI business, specifically to skip trace motivated sellers and cash buyers. Has anyone used one before? Did you have luck? how did you convey the process to them?

What tasks do they do for you?

I use virtual assistants frequently. Before hiring them make sure you know exactly what you want to outsource to them. 

It would be good if you did the task yourself so that you can explain it better to them. Be very detailed and specific with what you want them to do. Video tutorials or screen captures work best.  

Don't go for the cheapest outsourcer because they may not get the job done right and you are back at zero. Look at reviews and read the experience of others that used the person you want to hire. 

Once you find someone to hire give them a 2-3 week probation period to make sure you have a good fit and workflow. Otherwise fire them fast and move on to the next candidate so that you are not wasting time. Hope that helps you out.
