Should you start hiring people remotely? Almost all the brokers that we work with either consider working with a virtual team. Or, at least, in the process of doing so. This doesn’t surprise us one bit! Because thanks to all the tools we now have at our disposal, working remotely is easier than ever before. But it’s not the only reason why you should start building a virtual team.
In this episode of Mortgage Broker Acceleration, James Veigli and Ash Playsted discuss the idea of building a virtual team. They talk about the biggest mistakes you can make when creating one, and explain why they believe that matching virtual teams with the right structure and systems is the best formula for building your mortgage business.
