Hiring a Virtual Assistant
At Brivity Virtual Assistants, we’ve perfected a hassle-free hiring process.
How It Works
Online Consultation Call
We begin with an in-depth conversation to understand your business needs, the challenges you are facing, and where leverage will deliver the most ROI.
With a strategy in place, we get to work to match you with one of our vetted real estate virtual assistants.
How many virtual assistants do you need? We’ll help you figure that out during our online consultation, but here are some of the types of questions we’ll ask:
- Are you a single agent or a team?
- How many transactions do you close each month?
- How many transactions do you want to close?
- What does your team structure look like? (admin, ops, agents, etc.)
- Where do you want your team to grow?
- What keeps you from driving your business forward?
- What are your busiest months of the year?
- Are things that you’d like to get done, but just can’t yet?
We’ve found that a good starting point is:
The Right Match
Having the right real estate virtual assistant on your team is essential for long-term success. That’s why we take our internal review very seriously; only the top five percent make it through our interview process. Of those qualified, we custom curate a list of vetted people with real estate experience based on your business needs. From that talent pool, we pick the top 2-3 for you to interview.
Doing these steps long before you begin the interview process sets you up with the best of the best right from the start.
With your custom-curated list of potential candidates in hand, it’s time to begin hiring a virtual assistant. First, we provide you with our top candidate profiles to review. Then you select the individuals you’d like to interview. We facilitate the interview and collaborate on questions to ensure you get all the answers you need to make the best hiring decision.
Want us to run the interview? No problem, just let us know how we can assist you.
Once you’ve selected your new team member, we onboard you both, and our team of coaches, industry experts, and admin professionals ensure continued success with your dedicated virtual assistant.
We equip your new virtual team member with the tools they need to be successful. If you’re not set up with systems and processes, don’t worry–ask us how we can help streamline your business for success!
For our clients using the Brivity Platform, we send their new team members through Brivity Bootcamp for FREE so they can hit the ground running on day one.
Throughout the process, you are not alone. We support you every step of the way. Whether this is your first hire or you’re new to welcoming a virtual professional to your team, we’ve perfected the process for them to integrate with your business seamlessly.
And, if you’d prefer to be more hands-off, we can build an action plan for you and be the point of contact for your virtual assistant to communicate with about their priorities.
Tips for Success
While your new team member is highly skilled, they need to get up to speed on how you organize and manage your business. Our top clients find great success when they provide their virtual assistants with the following:
- Training on how your business operates
- Clearly defined roles/duties
- Clear priorities and outlined expectations
- A system of communication with you and your team
- Clarity on how to win each week
- Regular check-ins

Real Reviews from our Clients
Our Brivity VA is amazing.
Our Brivity VA is amazing. We are very happy with him. He’s done more in a week than my last on-site assistant did in 3 months. Clone him!
I couldn’t be happier!
My VA, Jessica, is amazing! We have done so much that I can now do the things that need to be done to build my teams. I couldn’t be happier and she is so easy to work with! Thank you so much, I’m a happy client!
We feel lucky to have her!
Our VA has been an asset to us. When we’re training her, she picks things up very quickly and I never have to tell her twice. She offers advice on how she can be more effective for us and helps make our processes more complete. She’s always happy and kind and we feel lucky to have her!
I’m very excited to have him on board!
In two days together, my Brivity VA and I have gotten more done than I’ve accomplished in two months time with in-house assistants in the past. I’m very excited to have him on board!
