The Partner With
Productivity in its DNA

From our senior leadership to our partners, REAL is driven by a shared vision for elevating remote work. We’re serious about maximizing your value, minimizing your inefficiencies and helping you experience real productivity.


Our Story

The novel coronavirus has transformed the way that Americans live and work. But even before social distancing and “stay at home” mandates accelerated the shift to remote work, the evolution was already taking place. In 2019, more than 26 million Americans telecommuted at least part of the time. More than 50% of working adults prefer working remotely and hope to do so after the pandemic ends. Meanwhile, studies have found that remote workers are often 30% to 40% more productive than ones who work from an office environment. But as the data continues to prove the effectiveness of remote work, there’s another side to the coin: leaders and organizations need the right partner to make “remote” work for them. REAL is that partner.


REAL was founded by a team of Oklahoma City entrepreneurs and executives passionate about helping businesses rightsize their remote workforce. We know what it’s like to run a business in the current landscape. We’ve experienced the productivity-boosting benefits of remote Executive Assistants and the scalability of using trusted partners in areas like IT and HR. And we also know that today’s professionals are seeking the same flexibility as employers. After speaking with countless businesses and workers about the need for a flexible, remote model, we created it.

Today, REAL Partners are delivering value for clients across EA, IT and HR. Our customers are maximizing their efficiency and productivity with a model “rightsized” for their needs. And our REAL Partners are contributing to fulfilling projects without the burden of daily commutes and full-time schedules that take away from time with their families. As the workforce continues to shift, REAL is guided by the same five values that compelled us to launch our company in the early days of the pandemic.
