I recommend that you either print this out and make notes that you will transfer to Highrise or, as I prefer, copy and paste them to Highrise and just make notes as you go.

Real Estate Investing Experience

  • What attracts you to real estate investing and specifically researching properties?
  • Have you done much real estate investing yourself? What? Tell me about your experience.
  • Are you planning to just do research and help us or do you plan to buy properties yourself?
  • Have you had any training doing bird dogging? Wholesaling? Real estate investing? What exactly?

Technology Questions

  • Have you used Gmail as your email provider? That is what we use.
  • Have you ever used the customer relationship management service Highrise? That is what we use to manage our contacts and things to do.
  • Have you ever used the online file sharing service Dropbox? That is what we use to keep our files including seller property files shared for our team.
  • Have you ever used Skype? We may use this to communicate amongst ourselves. This is especially helpful if your Virtual Assistant is not US based.
  • Have you ever used Campfire? We may use that to do online chats.
  • Have you ever used Google Talk? We may use that do instant messaging and online chats.
  • Have you ever used GotoMeeting or GotoWebinar? We may use that for meetings where you I need to see your computer screen or you need to see my computer screen.

“We get what we expect, not what we deserve.”

  • What do you think the most challenging part of this work will be?
