  1. I am interested in joining a Multi-VA team (or at least apply to join!) but I don't quite know how to determine a Subcontractor Rate? Is there some sort of excel sheet to help figure it out? I don't want to state too low or too high. I am just starting out, so I don't have as much experience as others. Help please!
  2. I really can't say a certain age or gender right now. Same as residential or commercial ect. I think I would need to work with a client from each to see what I do and don't like and then decide. Is that an Ok thing to do or should I be choosing between all that right now? I have a marketing plan started.
  3. My business name is Countryside Virtual Solutions. I offer basic Admin services but going to specialize in Realtor Support - Listing Coordination. I just completed the REA Univeristy PREA certification. My ideal client would be a agent who is needing that extra hand in order to sell more homes!
  4. Hey everyone, I am re-doing my business cards and am having a hard time coming up with something catchy to say on my card.... whether it be on the front or on the back with my list of services. I offer basic administrative services but am specializing in Real Estate support. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hi Amanda, I too was working full time, then had a daughter and wanted to be a stay at home mom so I could watch her grow. I did not want to put her in daycare. I took my Virtual Assistance Certificate back in 2008 and just completed the Professional Real Estate Assistant Certificate through REA University. I have the knowledge from the courses but still no hands on experience and I hope soon to find a client who is willing to work with me as I learn all the programs. I wish you luck with your business! Where are you located?
  6. Sorry Dana for not giving more info. Hope my post didn't sound rude, just meant that yesterday was the day I received my certification! CPREA is one of Pam Ivey's. I checked out REVA Academy and the course looks to be very similar to what I just completed. So by having the education but no hands on experience, what's the best way to contact a potential client? Email, cold calling?
  7. Stephanie, I am sure there are organizations but I don't know any off the top of my head. If there is someone who knows of some in Canada, please let me know or how to search for them
  8. Hi Dana, Actually I just completed the CPREA certificate through REA University! So I would say I have a good knowledge of what type of help they need, but still no actual Hands on work in their programs. I know this is a downfall, but I have to start somewhere, right?!
  9. I am at the stage in my business where I would like to seek out some clients. My target market is Individual Real Estate Agent's. What is the best way to contact them? Should I snail mail them my brochure and business card? Send him/her a personalized email with my brochure attached? I really can't tell if any of these agent's already have some sort of assistant, so I will hope they don't! Any other advise on how to seek a client would be appreciated! Thanks, Shannon Yurystowski

  11. Hello All, i have a question regarding business card designing..... A few years back my brother went to aprinting company and got his business cards designed and some printed as well. They are quite costly to get printed so he is wanting me to get them printed for less $$. Is he entitled to ask for his business card design? Thanks,
  12. Lauren, Welcome to VA Networking! I just checked out your website and I love it
