Experiences of a LAPD Realtor at Santa Clarita Foreclosure Court

    My history is 17 years as a LAPD Regular(today, remaining a Reserve Officer). In that time I served search warrants, chased people through houses, in the streets, was in fights, crashed on my police motorcycle, and had My Alive day August 12, 1995. What do I mean by an alive day – click here

    This bit of history brings me to evictions. We don’t do Evictions. We are not those type of Real Estate agents. We have a couple of Major Banks that use us to work their Foreclosure Inventory.

    However, that experience did help me become a great asset for the Banks that use us to premarket and sell their foreclosures.

    That being said, one of the first steps when an asset, a foreclosure, is assigned is the verification of occupancy. We have go to the property and ascertain if anyone is living there. Sometimes, there is no-one. Sometimes we run into Tenants that had no idea that their “landlord” was not making their payments. Most of the time we run into the Owners still living in the foreclosed property.

    We make contact, identify the occupant, and see what their plan is. Are they going to be moving out, do they want to accept a Cash for Keys agreement, or are they going to need to wait for a potential court date during a formal eviction?

    It’s the Court Step that I am talking about. Sometimes Tenants are caught up in this Foreclosure Mess. They had no idea that their landlord was not living up to their part of the bargain. What part is that? – Keeping the payments up on the home being rented.

    A lot of times there are kids involved – issues with the “living arrangements” – It is incredibly stressful for all involved parties.

    If you find yourself in a similar predicament – make sure you are getting good advice. Make sure you are being well represented. BE Safe and Thanks for Reading. More Foreclosure Information – including listings – click here.

    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.
