Prosper was created in 2015 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In 2015, Prosper Real Estate had huge growth in a very short timeframe, expanding into Wausau, Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay areas. In 2018, the company saw tremendous growth as a property management entity, expanding from just under 400 properties managed to 1,800 rental properties in an 8-month time period. Today, we manage properties all over the Midwest (and Texas), and maintain continued success as a Real Estate brokerage. With this expansion came immense growing pains. Examining the data, we realized labor had skyrocketed and all of the increased revenue was being burnt up by paying a
In the beginning of the first expansion, our management looked into different ways to decrease labor costs and increase profit margins. The virtual assistant avenue was discovered, which led to several trips to the Philippines. We began to train staff members to take over certain tasks that were currently being performed at the corporate
headquarters and saw huge results.
What we realized during this time was that the virtual assistants were clearly capable of doing any task that did not require someone to physically be present. Not only could the task be done overseas, but the team that we recruited and trained were incredibly reliable, trustworthy and dedicated workers that could in most cases accomplish tasks quicker than the staff members working in the United States--at a fraction of the cost. This allowed us to leverage time, skill sets and functionality to further support existing staff ultimately becoming even more successful. We found a way to work smarter, not harder.
Other businesses saw this exponential growth, asked how it was done, and how they could do the same. This led to us consulting with other small businesses, property managers and brokers to help them solve the issues that we had solved with the use of virtual assistants.
Fast forward to today, we now have a training facility in Cebu City, Philippines and we are the only Business Process Outsourcing company in the USA that has trainees work for an American Small Business, our property management company, before we place them with another business. They are vetted for their reliability, work ethic and knowledge. We have many satisfied clients in over 27 states and are constantly adding more.
We truly believe that virtual assistants are an absolute necessity for every small business and industry to create the best service for their clients and prospective clients while achieving maximum profit for their business.
