Yes, all of our virtual assistants have been trained to take incoming phone calls and listen to prospects requests and take accurate notes. They will then delegate the issue to the appropriate member of your team. However, we do not recommend they answer your phones until after theyare comfortable and confident in how you want calls handled, and you are comfortable with their skill set. Putting your assistant in a situation where they need to answer quickly without getting verification if their response is correct does not put them in a position to succeed for you.

Perhaps, better than asking what an assistant is capable of is asking what they are not capable of. Prosper has seen that an assistant can be trained on almost any task but it depends on how much time the owner is willing to invest into training the assistant. It is important to remember that your assistant is not licensed in the state that you are operating in. So they can not construct any contracts or do any negotiations on behalf of a client. Prosper does not recommend having any assistants handle any company funds, transfer money in any facet for the business nor have access to data such as social security numbers. Prosper is not responsible if an owner client allows their virtual assistant to handle any financial matters for the company. Prosper will not be held responsible for any legal contracts that are drafted without their permission.
Your assistant is trained in more than 25 different ways to generate leads for you. They can cold call for sale by owner listings, follow up with expired and withdrawn listings, and build your professional network to get you more leads. A complete list of lead gen tactics is included on the SERVICES page.
