How to dump your real estate agent to buy a Foreclosure in Santa Clarita Valley

    How’s this, you call that REO agent with the hottest foreclosure listing and tell them you will dump your real estate agent if they will represent you.  You can then let them know to give you the amounts of all of the other offers that have been submitted on the property in question and you will beat the highest by a few hundred dollars.  Furthermore, mention that because you are using them exclusively, to buy the very same home the bank has entrusted them to sell, they will be making double the commission.  I’ll do one better – Do all of the above over the telephone with the Santa Clarita foreclosure agent.Have you seen my coffee cup

    What are the odds that they will give up the ghost at your telephonic request?  You would be surprised that some would jump at the chance.  But, more definitely  most would not.  Most of the Foreclosure and bank owned real estate agents in the SCV are very seasoned.  This is not their first rodeo and they understand by breaching the trust of other agents, the bank and most importantly other buyers that have taken the time to view and have their real estate professionals write offers, those actions will catch up with them more sooner than later.

    So, what is the best way to approach a home that happens to be bank owned in the Santa Clarita Valley?  Get your very own agent and please be loyal to them.  If you don’t happen to have an agent – then hit up the REO Realtor, but you may find it will be difficult working with them because it affords your no advantage.  That is if they are playing a clean real estate game. 🙂

    We placed a new video on the home page of our SCV realtor site – some of the changes we have implemented to our Home Page at the Top Santa Clarita real estate website.  We changed some of the tabs and the real estate search interface.  We expanded the main search map to show all of the listings that are currently for sale in all of Southern California.  We then took the top part of the page and embedded a hyper link to give you the listings only in the Santa Clarita Valley cities.  That is the area in which REMAX of Santa Clarita’s Paris911 Team serves most comfortably with Seller Representation.  However, we have a radial comfort zone map that will be of assistance to you if you are outside of the SCV but considering hiring our team.

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles. Go to to listen to their latest real estate radio broadcast.
