What is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant (or VA) is a service provider who specializes in providing administrative support services and works with clients in an ongoing, collaborative professional relationship.

Virtual Assistants are business owners who work from their own offices and utilize today's technology to deliver their services and communicate with clients.

A Virtual Assistant's support is foundationally administrative, secretarial and clerical in nature. However, many Virtual Assistants offer additional specialties that fall under creative and technical services.

Virtual Assistants come from a variety of business backgrounds, but the single-most important qualification to become a Virtual Assistant is at least five (5) years administrative experience earned in the real (non-virtual) business world working in upper level capacities such as administrative assistant, executive assistant, secretary, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, real estate assistant, office manager, etc.

From this level of experience, a VA is expected to possess the skill sets, training and business knowledge which are the hallmark of a truly qualified Virtual Assistant.

Testimonial

"I have personally known Linda for approximately 25 years.  She initially worked indirectly for me within a Real Estate Partnership.  My very first impression was what a well-organized lady!  She had great secretarial skills, beyond what a regular secretary might have and actually was more of a personal assistant, who could anticipate what you needed and was always ready to finish any task.

Later, I hired her personally to,  not only perform office related jobs, but also interior design.  A subject that she had great interest.  She became our in-house interior designer for my construction company. 

What I found most valuable was that she interacted with our customers very well. Able to listen to their needs, encourage or advise them in making good selections that everyone approved.

Later in the early 2000 she became my office manager handling all aspects of our construction company. Allowing me to do what I needed to do to keeps the business flowing.

Since leaving our company to go out on her own, we have stayed in touch and I have enjoyed her friendship.  She is a warm and caring person whom I can say I am grateful to know."
