First let me say Connor is very professional…

    Woman shouting to a cell phoneSo, what my dad told me was true. “Son, you cannot please everyone all of the time…. and You will die trying..”

    Sage advice.  “Dad, I miss you every day…”

    Here is one of those one star reviews that sometimes become “business killers”. However, with my utmost in transparency – I wanted this bad review known to the masses.

    Thanks Oxana and Gary for taking the time to show the world what you thought.

    Be safe and It was my pleasure to serve your real estate needs…

    I have never written a review about any business, however I feel compelled to write this one.
    First let me say Connor is very professional and he does his homework when it comes to selling and buying used homes. But if you are buying a new home don’t be misled into believing that he will assist you in getting a much better deal than you could get on your own. Also don’t believe that the agent he assigns you will be there to assist and advise you through the whole process. I was promised this only to find out the contrary.
    The agent took me to the sales office, made sure their name was credited for bringing me in and then dissappeared for 6 months until escrowed closed and then collected their $15,000.00 commission!
    I sure could have used a helping hand when I think of all the stress I endured complylng with all the demands from the lender. Never once did I hear from them to ask if I needed any help with anything.
    Also the agent did nothing to assist me in getting a better deal. On the contrary I had to find out on my own about move-in incentives.
    I’m sorry but I expected more and I was promised more especially from someone who also represented me as the selling agent as well.

    And our response:

    6/29/2013 I have been in a quandary as to if I should respond.  After figuring out who this might have been, I thought I’d clear the air…
    Connor and Paris,

    You know this is not true!  I spent quite a bit of time working with G and O (Mostly G) On making sure he understood the possible incentives for his new home.

    The agent even went out of her way to try to accommodate G with a builder incentive for closing costs because he believed he was not getting something that an earlier phase would receive.

    I found them a builder that would take a contingency….This is next to impossible!!!!

    You worked hard on the resale side of things to make sure they could stay “rent free” in there home until the new property was ready.

    I took copies of their loan info to the lender….at the sales office and followed up as the company changed to a different lender.  (G did not like the first lender)

    From that point it was in the hands of the builder to build their home and after the close of escrow I dropped by the new house and gave O a gift to welcome their family.

    I remember in my early days with the LAPD when talking with the worst of the worst.  Sometimes the bad guy’s story sounded right, and the victim’s story sounded wrong.  It was hard to determine who was telling the truth.

    In the end an old timer, LAPD PIII police officer that started the job before I was born, said, “MacIvor, there are three versions of truth in everything…  Yours, Theirs and God’s….”

    Thanks for the opportunity and I appreciate Yelp giving business owners the ability to respond.

    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.
