When a hardworking agent realizes they are maxed out, it’s time to get some help from the world of admin. What’s the first step for finding the right person, what are you looking out for in the interview, and what are common hiring mistakes people make? We discuss this with agent and hiring consultant Linzee Ciprani.
Takeaways + Tactics
In the interview process, you’re looking for the candidate to be able to talk you through their thinking process, so you know how they’ll tackle the issues you want solved.
You’ve been calling your sphere for real estate stuff already, why wouldn’t you call them to ask about an assistant?
Make an “I hate to do” list and take those things off of you by getting help.
If you stay away from friends and family, you don’t risk damaging things.
On this episode, we covered:
You know in your gut when you’re not giving good service. -Linzee Ciprani
When you’re hiring an assistant, you’re looking for someone who really wants the result, which is solving the problem, not taking putting it back on your plate. -Matt Johnson
The whole point of getting yourself some assistance is to take the work you hate off your plate. The thinking process of the person you’re hiring is important, because it determines whether they are driven to solve your problems or just fling them back on your already full plate. The right person will be willing and able to take as much as possible of your plate without constant management and fixing from you.
