Podcast: Max Fisch: Hiring Virtual Assistants in the Philippines

Max started out as a mortgage originator in the early 2000s. Within his first year, he completed his first flip, netting a significant profit. Over the years, Max has completed hundreds of real estate transactions between financing, wholesaling acquisition, rehabbing, and long-term investing.

With the rising costs of marketing and lead generation, Max knew he needed more control of his business. As a result he founded Real Estate Project Solutions, a full service Virtual Assistant Agency that caters specifically to the real estate industry. His management team helps real estate investors, agents, and entrepreneurs outsource any area of their business in order to save on payroll costs and time to maximize profits. Max’s team can easily take the guesswork out of hiring, training, and managing Virtual Professionals for investors of all portfolio sizes.
