Hi, Damien here. And I’m often asked what tasks can a real estate business outsource?
As we speak, there are a little over 71 tasks that our clients outsource to their staff in our Philippines office and because of time, I don’t want to mention all 71 tasks. Instead, we’re gonna talk about the top ten tasks. Starting from number 1, and in no particular order, they are:
As you can see, outsourcing in real estate is a lot more than just processing applications. With all of that in mind, I’d like to get to know your thoughts.
- Have you ever considered outsourcing any of these tasks I’ve mentioned?
- How do you think your agency would benefit from outsourcing these tasks?
This is Damien and talk soon.
SOFTWARE OUR TEAM USE DAILY
OTHER HAPPY CLIENTS
Bite the bullet and give it a go. It’s been an incredibly valuable addition to our business. We’ve taken steps forward, we’ve only been doing it for a few months and I’ve already seen significant change to our business.
I’d just like to thank you guys for what you’ve done for us as it’s been really, really helpful.
I’m happy to talk to you about how it’s assisted us, and how we’re able to trust David and his team, and we’ve got other mutual clients that you could talk to as well.
I’ve had a long term relationship with Affordable Staff as a client and Trust them strongly.
We have operated with a remote team assisting our property management processes over a year now. Our experience with Affordable Staff has been fantastic.
The way they recruit and then induct the team is second to none. I can say this because we have had experience with another company. They are easy to deal with and upskill the girls on the programs before they start working with you.
Their understanding of the industry is great and they are all very easy to deal with. If you are considering hiring a remote team, Affordable Staff are the people you should be talking with.
I had the fortune to run into Eva and Damien at “Deniz Yuessf’s Inspired Growth” conference. Outsourcing was a topic of discussion within our business but like most things, it was on the back burner over other more pressing matters. After a brief discussion with Eva I was hooked.
We are still in the early stages, but the process has been made so easy by the team at Affordable Staff (both here in Australia and the Philippines). We have an amazing team member Fillamae, and are very confident she will free up valuable time we can spend on growing the rent roll and customer service. This coming from a woman who wont use the self service isle at Coles.
I can’t recommend Affordable Staff highly enough as my team are fully supported. The pressure is taken off where we can now have lunch every day and actually leave on time every afternoon.
After more thank 12 months of procrastinating and Damien holding my hand and guiding me though the entire process,
I am so excited to have taking on my first VA. I was very reluctant and didn’t really have the time for change and training, but it was far easier than I thought.
After just a month… I now could not work without Ely. This has literally saved me $1000’s (in just a short period of time) for our graphic design work alone.
We haven’t employed the team overseas to get rid of any team we have in our office… It’s to add value to the team in our office. Our local staff can now focus on more client-facing and client-building relationships while our team in the Philippines are doing some of the back-end things to help them out in their day-to-day operations.
We’re also adding more value added services to our clients, too. You know, we’re introducing a lot of things that we just could not have done otherwise.
So now, when we’re brainstorming, we could do this. “Oh great, Sunshine and Noelle could achieve that for us.” Whereas before we just didn’t have the manpower to achieve it. So I think now, we can give a much higher level of service to our clients because they’re helping the team do that.
Growth is everywhere you look at the new Renowned Furniture. We have added a new French polisher whose background harks from the Melbourne, Toorak elite where fine furniture and antique restoration are of a very high quality and we’ve also added a new joiner to assist with all the day to day joinery.
Our turnover here at Renowned has increased by more than double in the past 12 months! At a time when so many businesses in general are saying that they are quiet and so many businesses in our particular industry are downsizing or closing!
Once I learned details of your business model and your structure there was an automatic TRUST and it wasn’t a difficult decision to use Affordable Staff once we’d completed our own Due Diligence of your business. It’s a good feeling to be able to pick up the phone, talk to someone locally which gives you an ultimate sense of confidence.
Affordable Staff have been brilliant for our business. Through their staff selection and training of those staff specifically for our needs, we now have highly skilled, outsourced staff helping us with a range of functions including marketing, SEO, data mining, administration, and reception. They have helped increase our human resource skill base significantly while reducing our costs. It doesn’t get better than that in business!!!
I would recommend Affordable Staff to anyone needing a reliable and cost effective outsource solution.
Quite honestly, the biggest feature for me is the foundation in how Affordable Staff works. There is a strong focus on support and development of the team. For anyone looking at outsourcing I encourage you to give it a go. From first hand experience it has all of the positives and none of the negatives.
I chose to work with your company as I already knew who I was dealing with and we worked together to find a solution for me.
I felt supported and I was confident that my concerns and needs were acknowledged and responded to.
Having a VA has allowed me to focus on growing my business. Outsourcing has allowed me to focus on my business.
