    It’s like writing your name on a public bathroom stall

    When you give up your personal information on the web – You must consider where it is going to end up. Are you using a system that is built to generate leads and monetize each one?

    I get several calls a day from “telemarketers” working for Real Estate Lead Generation companies that want me to pay for the leads they are generating.

    Here is something you probably did not know. These sales people are not from the “larger” Internet Based Real Estate companies. ┬áThose sell your information to the agents that pay for leads as well…

    No, these other companies that want me to pay for their leads are capturing your data on other “micro” type sites.

    The type of Websites that can be built, optimized and added to a “pay per click” campaign to get you to click and give up your personal info.

    First and Foremost, if you want to keep your personal information protected check out these tips:

    • Make sure you are using a “real and local” agent.
    • Ensure that the area they mainly service is the area you are interested in.
    • If you are hunting Foreclosures – make sure they are an expert in that field of Real Estate.
    • Ask if they have access to all listing, or if they are limited in search.
    • Find out if they also can get “pre market” listings, foreclosures/short sales/regular etc.

    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.
