Here’s something that bears repeating, and it is something you will hear time and time again. Communication is such an important aspect of your partnership with your Virtual Assistant. This is where we have seen our most successful clients and virtual assistants thrive and last for years and years!
And when we encounter those who weren’t as successful, this is one of the areas that they were lacking in the most. Funnily enough, it seems so simple yet many fail to see the importance of this fundamental aspect. Or perhaps they weren’t sure how to communicate. Sometimes, the distance and the fact that you are outsourcing offshore can seem daunting.
So we decided to create a practical communication guide for you and your Real Estate Virtual Assistant.
First of all, remember from the very beginning that outsourcing to the Philippines is not an uncommon practice. In fact, the Philippines is one of the top countries major, even Fortune 500, companies choose to outsource to. This is because of their proficiency in English, connection to western culture and their hard-working spirit.

Keep in mind that it all starts when you onboard and train your Real Estate Virtual Assistant. This will set the tone for your relationship and become the foundation of your partnership. Training is essential, but not simply for the obvious reasons. The way you communicate with your Virtual assistant when you train them will establish the way you will communicate in the future. Of course, this will develop and change over time, but setting the parameters of how you want your communication to go is important at this stage.
