After many years in real estate, I officially became a Real Estate Virtual Assistant in 2006. Times were tough for the real estate industry and hiring an assistant was a new and novel concept and I was ready. It took a bit getting my business off the ground, but I wanted to help real estate agents because I knew how hard it was to do everything myself. So my business started really rolling along in 2010 and after several months going into years helped many agents across the United States through the dark years of the recession. Some agents needed only blogging, others needed not only help with their data base, but website maintenance and managing of their social media. Each one becoming a friend.
As the nation climbed out of the recession around 2014 my agent clients started hiring on-site assistants. It was just the sign of the times and another change in the industry. After working with such great and successful agents, I jumped into selling for a short time, ending up working with a highly successful local commercial real estate agent as his on-site assistant. I learned a lot about commercial real estate and negotiations from this top-notch agent.
My husband, who had been in property management for almost 30 years, asked me if I could help him in his property management business; so after several years as an assistant, I jumped into the property management business. That was an education in itself.
My husband retired this year after he sold his business – luckily, I was not part of the deal and saw the opportunity to go back to what I really enjoy doing – helping real estate agents build their business and become even more successful.
So, I have come back, dusted off my “Bild a Better Business” (Think OUTSIDE the Box!) and am ready to “Bild” a Better Business for you! What’s different this time is that I now have property management/multi-family and commercial experience to add to my toolbox.
