A stress free day in Real Estate – what I want for Christmas

    I cannot begin to explain what types of stress most agents deal with. In fact, It has driven many to drink, or worse, to check out of this world – prematurely. Real Estate stress

    Both of those are not good “stress relievers” in my world. While I do like an occasional drink, I’m too chicken to kill myself.

    There comes a time in every dealing within the hard ones when we have to realize that, as the Borg say, Resistance is Futile.

    Signing off and letting all parties know where you stand is key. In fact, when they have nothing to hold over your head, that is when true “freedom” comes into play.

    I’m not advocating giving up. I’m advocating not belittling one’s self in order to placate to anyone that does not have the experience to know what may be best.

    You can do only what your clients will agree to. If it comes to a sticking point where a real estate agents clients go against their “best opinion”, it should be realized that the client is still the boss.

    However, I suggest sending a simple email explaining your position as their agent, your advice and the acknowledgement of what was discussed and turned down by your buyer/seller.

    This friendly reminder will remind your client, if what you thought would transpire, with your training and experience, comes to fruition.

    Some times those that should be listening don’t. Be safe – get good advice and work with professionals in the service industry – including real estate.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
