As a real estate agent, balancing the demands of showing properties, handling administrative tasks, and building relationships with clients can be challenging. Hiring a showing assistant is one way to ease the workload and increase productivity.

But finding the right person for the job can be tricky. Here are some tips to help you find and hire the ultimate showing assistant for your business:

  1. Determine your needs: Before you start your search, take some time to think about what you need from a showing assistant. Will this person handle all of your showings or just some of them? Will they also be responsible for administrative tasks such as scheduling and follow-up calls? It’s important to have a clear idea of the tasks and responsibilities you want your showing assistant to handle so you can find the right fit.

  2. Look for the right qualifications: A good showing assistant should have a strong background in customer service and be comfortable interacting with clients. They should also be organized and detail-oriented, as they will be responsible for managing showings and other tasks. Consider looking for someone with a real estate license or with experience working in the real estate industry. These qualifications can be helpful in ensuring that your showing assistant has the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in the role.

  3. Consider personality: In addition to technical skills, finding a showing assistant who will fit in with your team and your clients is important. Look for someone who is friendly, professional, and reliable. A positive attitude and strong work ethic are key qualities to look for in a showing assistant.

  4. Set clear expectations: Make sure to clearly communicate your expectations to your showing assistant from the beginning. This includes things like the tasks they will be responsible for, their schedule, and any performance expectations you have. Having clear expectations can help ensure that your showing assistant knows what is expected of them and can work efficiently and effectively.

  5. Provide training and support: When you hire a showing assistant, ensure that they have the necessary training and support. This can include things like a tour of your office, an overview of your systems and processes, and ongoing support as they get up to speed in their new role. Providing training and support will help your showing assistant feel confident in their new role and ensure that they can contribute to the success of your business.

    A showing assistant can be a valuable asset to your business, helping you free up time for other tasks and allowing you to focus on building relationships with clients. By finding the right person for the job and providing them with the necessary training and support, you can increase your productivity and, ultimately, the success of your business.
