There aren’t many virtual companies specializing only in the real estate market, although a lot of companies do offer real estate support as part of their VA services.
My Outdesk, VA Staffer and Task Bullet are three virtual assistant companies offering similar pricing and real estate services within the skillsets of their VAs
Closer to home, you might consider UAssist.me out of El Salvador. They serve a lot of clients in the real estate field as well and have generated plenty of positive feedback.
When I asked what separates VA4REI from the other companies in this space they said there are two things. One is their rates being lower than most competitors, and the other is that their virtual assistants are trained and experienced in the US market real estate market.
