by Rincey Abraham

It can be difficult for many agents to take the leap from working alone to hiring an assistant to help. It is even more difficult to find someone who has previous experience in the real estate industry. Once an assistant is hired, it is extremely important that agents train them properly so that they become an essential part of their team. However, many agents do not have enough time to fully invest in their assistant as much as they would like.
