I don’t care where you search for homes but…

    Here is the rub – when you are searching for real estate online, understand some systems are Real Estate Search in Santa Claritabetter than others. Some are pulling on the real estate data directly from the Multiple Listing Service.

    That service is provided by the Local Boards of Realtors within the specific area you wish to live.

    Here is what it takes to get those listing by a Real Estate agent and publicize them on their website for their clients to see and to search with their agent’s system.

    “In this corner” – Ding! Ding!

    1. The Real Estate agent must be a “Licensed” Real Estate agent in the State they want to publish MLS based listings
    2. The real estate agent must work with a Licensed Broker
    3. The real estate company must be licensed with the State
    4. The real estate agent must be a Realtor
    5. The real estate agent must be a member of the National Association of Realtors
    6. Then the Realtor must be a member in good standing with the local (insert city name) Board of Realtors
    7. The Broker needs to be a member in good standing with the Local Board of Realtors
    8. The Broker needs to be a member of the National Association of Realtors 
    9. The real estate company has to be in good standing within the Board of Realtors

    Then – Round 2…

    1. The Realtor must find a compliant Internet Data Exchange System
    2. The Realtor then must build a website
    3. The Realtor then sends in forms and documents to the IDX System and the Local Board of Realtors asking permission to display the MLS based listings on their website
      1. It is at that time the Broker is notified to ensure the Website is company compliant
      2. The Board of Realtors must approve the website, the feed and the way in which the MLS based real estate listings are displayed
      3. This takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks to fulfill all of these steps

    So РWhat is the point?  The point is not just anyone can display the Multiple Listing Service real estate listings.

    Some entire business models have been built with the “monetization” of your personal and private information in 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.
