The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has been instrumental in promoting the use of real estate assistants by harried members. According to the industry's leading body, 15 percent of agents have at least one assistant and 51 percent of those assistants work part-time. The constant demand for real estate services means that a one-person office can be overwhelmed with a handful of clients. By hiring a single real estate assistant, a busy agent can delegate responsibilities and focus on making customers happy.
The pay scale for real estate assistants varies based on licensing and experience levels. NAR found the median hourly wage for a real estate assistant to range from $13 to $17 per hour. A real estate assistant who has been licensed by his home state can be paid a commission for facilitating property sales. Some agents and brokers use bonuses to reward assistants who draw in new clients and increase commissions.
