Real estate outsourcing companies - how to choose your provider
Improved productivity, efficiency, retention rates and staff satisfaction are just some of the many benefits of outsourcing. In addition, your agency can save up to 70% on employment costs compared with hiring local talent. However, to ensure success, you need to select the right provider.
So where to begin? Start by asking the hard questions. These questions should drill down into the operations of any prospective outsourcing provider. This will give you a thorough understanding of how they work and what your working relationship will look like. Some of these questions may include:
- What tools do you have in place to ensure staff members remain online and productive 100% of the time?
- How do you supervise my outsourced staff?
- How do you ensure staff cannot access cloud-based systems and applications outside of the office?
- How do you review staff performance?
- How does your recruitment process ensure you find the best candidate for my role?
Be sure to select a provider whose values align with your business objectives and who has experience in the real estate industry. This step is crucial to the success of your outsourcing journey.
After all, not all outsourcing providers are the same. Each has different protocols, inclusions, facilities, T&Cs and contracts. Analyse, compare and choose the provider that fits best with your agency.
