The Grass is always greener. That is what my dear old dad used to tell me when he was a part of the living.
However, he said it in that manner because it’s almost never true.
Looking for real estate and local agents should not be the issue. You can find local REMAX of Valencia CA agents by clicking on our Santa Clarita Local Agents link.
Some local real estate companies view their real estate hires as being worth at least three real estate transactions. Their, a family members and a friends, that is not how agent’s are viewed by REMAX.
The same with local real estate teams. Instead of hiring the best Santa Clarita buyers agents and paying them 50% for assisting the teams buyers and without requiring them to sign a contract(length of commitment) – Most teams only give up 25% to their buyers agents and make their buyers agents sign a “no holds barred” contract at a minimum of a 3 year commitment.
Heck – if that team leader had more “self worth” – they’d Hire Buyers Agents like The Paris911 Team does – but that is a whole different story )
REMAX International and REMAX of California and Hawaii, requires the local Real Estate agents to perform to a minimum of standards. They also do not take new real estate licensee’s.(with rare exception)…
That is beneficial from a buyers and sellers point of view – because they are not going to be dealing with someone that is texting their new real estate license by trial and error.
While there are many mistakes that can be made from dealing with a “Green” realtor versus someone that is “Seasoned”, the seasoned realtor will provide for the least amount of harm during your real estate transaction.
Be safe – search well and make sure you are only looking at the real estate listings that are for sale. You can do this by using the Multiple Listing Service for Southern California and where we are Head Quartered in the Santa Clarita Valley cities.
