What type of companies do you work with?

We typically work with commercial real estate investment, development, capital markets, brokerage, and corporate teams. Some of our clients are small, one-person firms. Others are multinational companies with thousands of employees.

Why do companies hire freelancers?

Freelancers can flexibly support a variety of work needs. We’ve listed a few of our common use cases below:

  1. Your team needs an extra set of hands or special expertise on a project
  2. You’ve had unexpected turnover and need to backfill a role quickly
  3. One of your team members takes leave, and you need a temporary backfill
  4. You need help from time to time but don’t have the budget to hire a full-time employee

Yes and no. Our network has both full-time freelancers and professionals who work on nights and weekends around their full-time job.

Can you help me find a part-time or full-time contractor?

Yes! We commonly help companies fill part-time and full-time contract positions.

How much does it cost to hire a freelancer on Bullpen?

Can I require my freelancers to work in-office?

No. All freelancers on Bullpen work remotely. However, some will travel to properties depending on your role’s requirements.

Can you help me hire a full-time, W2 employee?

No, we leave that to real estate recruiting firms.

Can I hire my freelancer in the future?

Yes, you can hire your freelancer at no cost after working with them for 12 months through Bullpen.

How do I know how many hours my professional has worked in a month?

At the start of each month, you’ll receive an email detailing the prior month’s billing. Additionally, you can ask your freelancer or account manager for the current outstanding billing.

How do you vet freelancers?

Freelancers complete a three-step vetting process before they are recommended for your role.

Background Assessment

We score all candidates on their work experience, education, and presentation to make sure they both have relevant experience and are polished.

Interview

All candidates must complete an interview with our talent team to verify their technical and soft skills. For technical roles, candidates are required to complete a case study to prove their competency.

Role Review

Before we recommend a freelancer for your role, we conduct a thorough assessment of their skills and sample work to make sure they are qualified to support your need.

Additionally, we curate our talent network based on client feedback. Only the best freelancers win multiple projects.
