    A tale of two gas stations and a bathroom.

    image649475892.jpgI was showing properties in the west valley area of Los Angeles to a long time LAPD detective friend. In an attempt to stay hydrated I had drank a lot of water before leaving the office to show the home.

    After we had finished, I needed fuel and to use the bathroom quite urgently. I drove from west valley on Topanga Canyon and reached the intersection of Lassen and Topanga.

    I was faced with two choices. One gas station was farther, on the other side of the intersection with fuel at $.06 a gallon more expensive. I went to the station that was cheaper. I went inside before I started pumping fuel. Remember I said “urgent”. I asked to use the bathroom. I was refused. I said I would be buying fuel, but still the cashier refused.

    I entered my vehicle and drove across the street to the Mobil station that was $.06 more expensive per gallon for gas. I went inside before pumping fuel, as I did at the other has station. I asked to use the restroom. Without hesitation the cashier said, “it’s open”.

    When is fuel worth paying $.06 a gallon more? “When you have to urinate like a race horse !”

    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.
