How We Work...Most Real Estate Agents have a need for an assistant, although the thought of hiring their own administrative assistant appears to be quite time consuming. For some, it´s also a scary commitment. From the ad in the newspaper to the hiring and training process, a month may have passed. Unfortunately your clients and the growing paperwork won´t wait. Our system is easy. We work based on a time clocking system. This means that you only pay for the time and attention given to you and your projects instead of 20 - 40 hours a week. For example, if it takes us 20 minutes to update your website and 15 minutes to put an ad in the paper, then you are only billed for 35 minutes of our time. You also get a monthly detailed report of actual time worked. Within days you can have a qualified Virtual Administrator organizing your business without taking up space within your office. Real Estate Management Solutions will evaluate your current business practices, make recommendations and help you implement systems needed.

REMS Virtual is a company located in San Diego County. I decided to create the company after seeing a consistent need for experienced staffing within the Real Estate Community. A licensed agent myself, I have designed this program to help agents with their administrative, marketing and advertising needs without having to occupy space within their office. My experience in real estate, business, accounting, marketing, advertising, web design, software training and office management has lent a hand in building a succesful Virtual Administrator program.This is a relatively new concept that has proven to be not only successful but necessary. The agents I work with never have to worry about training, managing, turnover rates or limits in their uses of technology. I take pride in helping agents become more successful and achieve awards.If you're skeptical, I recommend that you visit my testimonial page or call me. I would be happy to explain how my program works.
I joined Real Estate Management Solutions in the Spring of 2004 when it was a groundbreaking business concept. Today, it has grown to become quite a successful business in which I am extremely proud to be a part of.
My good friend Mindy presented me with this ground level opportunity to develop this company as a team. Mindy possesses a vast knowledge of the Real Estate business, while I bring my degree in Accounting with experiences as a Fiduciary Trust Accountant, Global Asset Reconciler, Revenue Control Specialist, and Senior Sales Associate within the banking industry.
Together we´ve become quite a team! We look forward to each day´s new challenges and approach them with a work ethic that has been the key to our success. We are constantly searching for new ideas which will help our clients utilize their time in more productive ways. By taking advantage of our services, agents have more time to focus on their primary objectives.
We take pride in the fact that our small business helps our clients achieve big business results. Give us a call and we´ll use our time to maximize your time!

Is it really so important to have a website?Nearly 3 out of 4 homebuyers now use the Internet as a tool when searching for a home, and those who use the Internet are more likely to use real estate professionals, according to the 2003 National Association of Realtors® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.Internet buyers are younger, wealthier, better educated and more likely to be married than traditional buyers. The California Association of Realtors® advises, however, that Internet buyers and traditional buyers should not be viewed as two separate populations but as segments in the spectrum of the homebuying population, each utilizing technology in varying degrees. C.A.R. President Jim Hamilton said, "Homebuyers clearly view the Internet as a tool to enhance their ability to research the real estate market, rather than a replacement for a Realtor®'s expertise in the field.""As more consumers gain access to high-speed connections and spend more time online, they have clearly experienced a growing comfort level with using the Internet in all facets of their day-to-day lives," said Hamilton. "This has translated into greater use of the Internet when buying a home. Given the competitive nature of the current real estate market, consumers increasingly look to the Internet for information. As a result, homebuyers are better informed and maintain a greater sense of control over the homebuying process."Stay on the Cutting EdgeThe 2005 N.A.R. Member Profile discovered that 87% of real estate firms and 46% of individual Realtors® have a website to market their services. The study also reported that 81% of buyers who use the Internet to search for a home purchase through a real estate agent, while 63% of non-Internet users buy through an agent. Non-internet users are more likely to purchase directly from a builder or an owner they knew in advance of the transaction.In 2005, the C.A.R. reported that Realtors® are doing more than ever on the Internet such as marketing, maintaining their websites, and communicating with clients. As a result they are generating more business from the Internet than ever before. About one-third of Realtors® business is being generated from the Internet in 2005 versus under one-quarter a year ago and even less in prior years.A Note About Community Pages and Searching the MLSFormer C.A.R. president Gary Thomas said that by the time an Internet buyer contacts an agent, he or she has a "good understanding of what they want, where they want to live, and what they can afford." He added, "They've often chosen the neighborhoods they want to evaluate, narrowed their choice of homes, come up with a list of homes they want to see and understood what they can afford and what their mortgage options are."The N.A.R. found that the most important factors in choosing a location to purchase a home are neighborhood quality, close to a job or school, close to family or friends, and the school district itself.One of our specialties is providing community pages for the areas you serve. Show potential clients that you really are a local expert. Keep potential clients at your website longer and give them a reason to keep coming back.We can also assist you in setting up an Internet Data Exchange (IDX) feed so that your potential clients can search the MLS from your website. Note: IDX policies range from state to state. We will work with your MLS Board to find out what requirements are necessary for you to feature a live feed on your website.
