Setting a new virtual assistant up for success is the foundation of a great working relationship. When things go wrong, people are quick to blame the VA, but it’s on you to give them what they need to do their job. You’re responsible for providing them with the right tools and for getting them up to speed on your processes and best practices. They can’t learn without you.
When building out your real estate business, your VA is often the first person you hire. Since they’re your right-hand partner, it’s important to choose the right fit for your needs. Depending on what you’re going to have them do, you’ll need to screen them for personality traits and skills during the interview process. Having them take a simple skills test or do a sample call from a script are both good ways to see what they’re made of. To keep your staff accountable without micromanaging them, consider using a scorecard system and providing them with as much feedback as possible. Don’t forget to let them know you appreciate them and thank them for a job well done.
