    Fences Don’t Have to Be Barriers to keep people out

    increasing home values

    Working from a “public safety” perspective is great for clients.  But when I am working with the “non-sworn”, I usually get a chuckle when I am giving my “safety briefing” about home-ownership.  They are thankful that I have the experience “direct and hands on”, but I’ll admit I can be a bit too “concerned” from time to time. I have heard our clients comment at times, “I had never thought of that…” 🙂  I get the grin, and we move on.

    Fences don’t have to be barriers. The old adage “good fences make good neighbors” holds a lot of truth, whether the purpose is to keep your dog contained, a neighbor’s dog of your lawn, or simply provide an attractive boundary for what is yours. However, fences do not have to appear like looming barriers, keeping the world away and at bay.

    There are many attractive ways to fence in a garden or a yard, some of which can even provide a trellis of sorts to support vines, roses, grapes, or what-not. While fences can be expensive, particularly the more intricate the design, they are hardly one of the biggest financial investments as far as home improvements go.

    If you are considering adding a fence to your property, take a look around your neighborhood. Choose a design that will not only add to your home’s curb appeal but will also fit in with your surroundings. In addition, consider how much of your property you want to fence, perhaps simply the back yard, maybe just the front. What ever the case, consider the view and erect a fence that will do your home justice. The white picket fence once represented the American Dream!

    A recent article from House Logic displays how a fence can reflect one’s personality. Click here for the images to see how unique a fence can really be.

    I love my past and Paris and I both think it adds dimension to our clients.  A dimension, not of sight or sound – but of mind…. 🙂

    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.
