    If you are not checking your Spam Folder Daily – you are leaving (others) money on the table

    If anyone is going to be “big” enough to put their “big boy” pants on and use email for their primary method of communication with others, they need to mosey up to the “spam bar” every once in a while.

    Don't leave money on the table with real estateHow often? – Every Single Day when you are checking your regular email, take a second and click on the spam folder.

    I know most of the internet based email systems and the private ones have email capable of placing certain messages into Spam Folders – Your’s is no different.

    This Santa Clarita business blog post came about when a local Santa Clarita real estate agent did not accept a better offer for their seller’s home because of their neglect in checking in the spam folder.

    In this particular case their seller lost 45 thousand dollars.  That is what the real estate buyer wanted to pay over the listing price.  The buyer was cash and their agent was livid.  The agent called and left messages late in the PM. This particular Santa Clarita real estate agent apparently shuts down her phone after 7pm. (that’s a nice luxury 🙂 )

    The offer was emailed – sent with a Video Email and then re-sent.  Calls, texts and messages were left to ensure receipt   However, the listing agent, per her own admission, did not check her spam folder.  She also stated she was “over-run” with offers.  Instead of being “over-run” I would have used the term, “Seller was blessed with offers..”  Isn’t that the goal – multiple offers.

    In addition, the seller chose not to counter any of the 12 offers received back.  That seems to be a neglectful action on the part of the sellers agent.  You never know what you will get until you counter.  In addition, any of the offers that entered the “spam” folder, could be viewed as neglect by the buyers wanting to purchase the sellers home.

    Check your spam folders when you check your regular email’s – It will save you a lot of heartache and maybe make you more $$$ in the long run…

    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.
