    How do you gauge a Realtor’s Success?

    When looking around within our REMAX of Santa Clarita Offices and interacting with other agents from other Real Estate companies, I cannot help but wonder what the “key” to success is.

    I know it is probably not a single key and what has been instrumental in the success of our Paris911 Team.  With Preparation and education being the keys to real estate success. Real estate is local and individual and it is necessary for buyers to not only know the local market where they intend to buy but also to know their own individual needs. REMAX of Santa Clarita is the “go to” source for local Real Estate within the SCV.  Investing inBuying real estate rental property is different from investing in a primary residence for example and being aware of goals, needs, and intended end results is useful information.

    Bargains exist in today’s real estate, however for the most part buying a true bargain involves patience as the process is a lengthy one. Timing is typically different on a short sale or REO property, acceptance deadlines are rarely met, and the same is true for the majority of typical contractual time-lines. In addition, utilizing a REALTOR that has experience with bank owned properties as well as short sale properties can be incredibly useful.

    Knowing the local market is easier with access to current market data. Knowing what is selling where and for what enables a buyer to know what constitutes a reasonable offer. This can be done by being glued to the internet, the newspapers and the assessors office or by working with a real estate professional whose job it is to know the market inside and out. The important thing to remember is that knowledge is power when it comes to real estate.

    When Searching for homes – you want to use a local resource.  Here are a couple of examples of a Simple Santa Clarita Real Estate Search and a Foreclosure Real Estate search from the Southern California Areas.

    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.
