NAR reports that it takes 45 hours to close a transaction. According to surveys, Real Estate agents spend at least 60 percent of their time in the office and only get to spend time offsite at showings, etc., at least an hour a day. How much time are you spending on your transaction coordination?
Cut down the time you spend on each transaction from 45 hours to only 15! Paperwork is a problem for many agents. Its time consuming and it takes someone who is detail oriented and focused to ensure that everything is on the up and up. One misstep can cause a lot of issues and can lead to delays that will frustrate your clients. Imagine what you can do with the extra 30 hours! You can use it to close more deals and spend more time with your family and friends!

Bruce and Michelle Brunk hired a Virtual Assistant to handle their transactions 2 years ago. Their MyOutDesk Transaction Coordinator started giving them leverage by taking over one responsibility, preparing pre-listing packages. From there they continued to delegate more responsibilities to their Virtual Assistant, Virnelli. Now she is integral in multiple facets of each transaction from MLS listing, research, offers, to transaction coordination and multiple facets of each transaction they receive from contract to close.
Bruce and Michelle also credit Virnelli for creating systems within their business so they do not miss any steps or paperwork and are always ready when meeting with their clients. She created trackers, standard operating procedures and checklists to ensure that there are no missed steps. Currently, they have developed a project management method wherein they isolate and segment each of their transactions in progress.
The Brunks recall an incident where there was a mix-up between 2 transactions, which tends to happen when there are a lot in process. Nobody was able to catch the mistake, not even their in-house person, until the last minute. Bruce was late to the presentation and they lost the listing. Hearing about this Virnelli stepped in and said “this will never happen again.” She created a checklist and tracker to ensure that it indeed would not. She was able to create a system that did not previously exist to help her clients keep their services top notch.
Beyond that, Bruce and Michelle have been empowered to delegate even more responsibilities to Virnelli, currently she also stays on top of their marketing for their properties listed, and she keeps their statistics up to date for marketing reports and manages their database. They continue to train her to take on more as she approaches her 3rd year with them. Virnelli has provided so much value to their business.
What do Bruce and Michelle say to those of you who are thinking: “I don’t have time to hire or train someone”? If you don’t hire someone you will NEVER have the time.
