Create and develop promotional materials and market ideas. Updating their websites, data base and social media accounts to update the public of what going on. Most of their desk jobs is done first thing in the morning. Why? Because banks and other offices conducts most of their transaction early.
Sad to say, most of these administrative work consume a lot of their time and keeps them from generating leads and putting in money. A good real estate agent knows what and how to prioritize their work, so they would often hires an assistant or a virtual assistant. This process allows them to delegate administrative task and use that as a leverage to focus on the market and generate leads and sale.
