Closing the discussion on Virtual Assistants (VAs), here are some resources on how to find the perfect VA for your business:
- Ask other real estate professionals for referrals.
- Visit Gooder Group’s Rainmaker E-Central-trained list of VAs.
- Visit eRainmaker.com for a directory.
- Check out IVAA Directory at www.IVAA.org, the website of the International Virtual Assistants Association. Filter for “Real Estate” designation.
- If it’s important that your VA be available for occasional face-to-face meetings, limit your search to your geographical region.
Now that you’ve found a VA, how do you get started with a VA?
- After you have interviewed and selected a VA, let them guide you.
- Some VAs have specific “start-up” procedures, such as a no-fee one-hour consultation, others begin with a small project and go from there.
- Develop and agree on a specific list of tasks or projects to minimize misunderstandings. Be explicit and put in writing everything that needs to be done.
Whether you are working to find a VA, have had one for a while, or are just getting started using a VA, let us know how you found your VA.
