Job Description for Real Estate Assistant

A real estate assistant holds a position with duties similar to many other administrative positions in other industries. The real estate assistant is a mix of a realtor and a secretary, as they typically handle incoming telephone calls, client contacts, open-house scheduling, copy-making, and creation of clerical reports and spreadsheets, in addition to other supporting tasks. Property management may also be a key component of the real estate assistant's position, which includes making sure tenants pay rent, fulfilling work order requests, managing lease agreements, and filing eviction paperwork. Another main aspect of the real estate assistant's position is marketing available properties through methods such as posting brochures or advertisements online, creating open house events, scheduling tours of the properties, and handling any incoming queries from prospective clients.
