Outsource real estate executive assistants to the Philippines


What is a real estate executive assistant?

An executive assistant is responsible for ensuring that principals and other business leaders keep moving forward. They are the main point of contact for these senior business leaders and screen incoming communication, handle scheduling, organise meetings and carry out other administrative tasks. 

Real estate executive assistant duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising between the principal and their clients
  • Handling and filtering all incoming calls, messages and reports 
  • Managing schedules, meetings and travel arrangements 
  • Inputting client information into relevant CRM databases
  • General administrative duties as required. 

These executive assistant tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local real estate teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced executive assistants. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great real estate executive assistant?

Real estate executive assistants are the backbone to any successful agency. They take on all administrative tasks that would otherwise take up a principal’s time so that they can focus on the more important, revenue generating tasks. These assistants require high-level attention to detail and time management skills to keep up with the fast-paced paced nature of the real estate industry. 

Outsourcing services recruit real estate executive assistants the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have assisting real estate executives in an administrative form?
  • What are your time management skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication, both written and verbal, between senior business leaders, internal departments and clients?
  • What organisation techniques do you use to ensure information is updated and maintained?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What tools and systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in business administration is desirable but not necessary. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your agency’s requirements by hiring these executive assistants who can efficiently support and coordinate with your onshore teams to increase revenue. 

  • Whether you are looking to train an executive assistant from the ground up and teach them your agency’s way of doing things, or 
  • Whether you are seeking expertise and a team of executive assistants with certifications and higher education.

How does hiring an outsourced real estate executive assistant work?

This first step is to find out if your business is offshore ready. If the answer is yes, here are the next steps:

  • Create a job description: to help us hire the right candidate for your role. We can also assist in this process to ensure we are finding the best talent in the current local market. 
  • Source the right candidate: we source candidates across our database and the local market before presenting you with a shortlist of the most suitable candidates available. 
  • Screen and interview: You screen, interview and select the candidate(s) you’d like to hire while we take care of the infrastructure set up to get them ready to work for your business. It’s usually around six to eight weeks to get your offshore staff up and running.
