Second Self Virtual Assistance offers excellent support services for real estate agents including website design, contact management, blog marketing, social media marketing, online property syndication and many other administrative services.  One of the most important benefits of working with Second Self Virtual Assistance is the fact they offer a vast array of helpful and convenient services based on your individual needs. Their primary goal is to help make your business run smoothly. Pamela Cendejas, CEO of Second Self Virtual Assistance says, "You're great at selling real estate and really enjoy working closely with your buyers and sellers.  It brings you great joy to help them find their little piece of paradise.  Doing the job right can take up a lot of your time and energy.  However, the rewards are immeasurable and you can't imagine doing anything else.  At the end of the day, you have a feeling of great satisfaction for a job well done."

In today's highly competitive real estate world, it takes more than simply selling real estate to be successful. You must constantly promote yourself and your services. "When will I find the time?" you ask.  Sit back, close your eyes and imagine:

Looks like something I won't want to miss.  Thanks. Carra.  I hope you have a list to send out when this comes on.  I think one of us in the office was on it at one time, but fell off.

Pam,

It will exciting to have you three fun girls on the show sharing how you can help agents survive in social media.  Talk to you on Thursday!

Posted by Carra Riley (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 8 years ago

Carra, Pam, Heather, & Crystal - unfortunately I'll be missing this show because I'll be with a client on a home inspection.  But that is REALLY the whole point of having a Virtual Assistant (VA) - the VA is taking care of my administrative tasks so I can interface directly with my clients.  Working with Pam and her crew has been just about the best thing I've done for my real estate business.  Since I now get most of my clients via my websites, the SEO and linking work they've done has been absolutely critical to get my websites at the top of the search engines.  Because they are CONTINUOUSLY looking for the latest and greatest ways to promote my business, they've gently pushed me into writing a weekly blog and taking part in various social media venues.  I don't have to worry about staying in touch with my customers and  clients, they just take care of it making me look REALLY good!

Deb,

Now that is about the best recommendation anyone could have.. so thanks for sharing and I know listeners will want to hear about that.  I might use part of your comment in the introduction if you would approve that... just let me know... Thanks for the GREAT comment Deb! Looks like the perfect fomat for a Linkedin recommendation.

Posted by Carra Riley (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 8 years ago

Hey Carra - Deb has been one of our biggest cheerleaders for the past 5+ years.  She's also an awesome Realtor(R) in the Colorado Springs area.  It has been our joy and pleasure to support her in her business.  She is so open to our recommendations and has seen such great online success as a result.  Teamwork - we all do what we do best.

Hey Carra - feel free to quote me.  And here's a question you should ask Pam on air - Who is YOUR VA??!!!!

Posted by D J almost 8 years ago

Pam,  what a great testimonial!  I know I love everything you put out.. and Deb verifies that it WORKS and she gets business... doesn't get much better than that! 

Posted by Carra Riley (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 8 years ago

Deb,

Thank you and I will ask.

Any chance you get to learn these days you need to take it, and this show sounds like a great way to learn my friend.

Carra,

WOW!!!  This will be a great program.  I highly recommend Pamela's team!!!  Very detailed, professional and extremely knowledgeable.  (If I had the dictionary next to me I would add a few more descriptive adjectives.)

Heather and I had the opportunity to meet in person last fall.

I will have the catch the archive.

Mary,

I have had the pleasure of meeting both Heather and Pam.  I am looking forward to meeting Chrystal one of these days... if you just look at the posts they put out it shows that "perfection" is the operative word in their behavior! 

Posted by Carra Riley (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 8 years ago

Mr. Ed, You were a wonderful guest and we loved hearing all about your community and the great home values you have in the area!  Busy is good when the information we share helps the consumer...

I work with a TC who is pretty much my VA, and I've never met her, even though we work in the same office, LOL. I rely on her to take care of business, follow up and nag (that's an important part of real estate that many agents overlook), and give me progress reports. She's invaluable to me. Can't say enough good things.

Thanks Carra. I can't wait until Thursday ;-)

Posted by Crystal Morris (Second Self Virtual Assistance) almost 8 years ago

We can't wait to talk to you on Thursday, too, Carra.  You're always so fun.  I know the time will just fly by.  You are the Cosmic Cow Pie queen, right?  :)

Posted by Heather Chavez, Real Estate Virtual, Assistant (928) 692-3235 (Second Self Virtual Assistance) almost 8 years ago

Elizabeth....I am going to have to ask the girls about the TC Transaction Coordinator reponsibilities.  I am not sure if they do that with follow-up on contracts or work more with the social media side of marketing.  That is a good quesiton.  I know all three of them are fantastic at blog posts, house and event promotion so will ask them if they do transaction work too. 

Posted by Carra Riley (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 8 years ago

Chrystal and Heather,  I think the time will fly!  It will be good to have on audio just exactly what you do so  it is an easy way to share and get people to thinking about time management.  I know it will be tons of fun!  Queen???? mmmmm I do hang out in the Cosmic Cow Pie always trying to connect the dots... lol!   TTY Thursday!

Ohmygosh, Carra.  I just realized that Thursday will be the 1 year anniversary of when I first started blogging here in the Rain.  I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to talk to you live.  Cool!

Heather... congratulations!  you sure have done A LOT in 1 year... I just posted on linkedin and tweeted this:
