I promise not to puke on you

    We don't puke our Real EstateDo you have any idea what I’m talking about?  I just left a networking meeting and before I get into the Market Reports that Paris and I prepared for the Cities and Communities that are within the Santa Clarita Valley – I will explain further. 

    When networking, I always ask about others.  I want to know what they do and what makes them different than others in their same industry.  To get to know someone in that way and to get answers to all of those questions takes time.

    I rather sit down for 15-20 minutes and really get to know what makes this other “business” owner or “service” provider “Different”.

    The 1 minute business card and 30 second stadium pitch method of Networking is a bit sickly these days. If I get to know you I will be more likely to tell others about your business.

    If I have you in a “captive” forum, such as on my Radio Show, the connection is like 3 inch in diameter steel bands.

    Ask yourself, do you puke or add value? Be Safe.  For more “stop puking” techniques, subscribe to our Santa Clarita Business Blog and Tune into our Santa Clarita Radio Station.

    Final Question – is it really necessary to say you are the “#1” at anything?

    Food for thought – let us know in the comments below…

    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. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.

      Connor, I couldn’t agree more. Many people who know me know that I have a wealth of resources far and wide and that I love to connect people. I really want to get to know a person and find out how I can serve them by putting them in touch with people that can move their businesses forward or form power partners. I know that eventually it will come back to me. I want to be the go to person. Over time that will bring me business.

      I prefer not to give my card out unless I’m asked for it.

      Have a great week. And thank you for all you do! How can I serve you, my new friend?
