Real Estate Experience is priceless – Have you considered Referrals?

    Experienced Santa Clarita RealtorsWSJ – Wall Stree Journal had a great article in which it talked about a study conducted that said real estate experience equates to a 12% increase in sales price versus a new or non experienced agent.

    It boils down to referrals.  We are Santa Clarita Realtors that have been representing buyers and sellers of real estate since 1998.  I have to agree with the article – The referral part of our Santa Clarita CA based business did not start to turn over until about the third year of us being full time in the real estate business.

    Today, it is the largest part of our business.  However, even with that, we have not slowed down on our advertising of our brand and of our sellers listings.

    I suppose that gives us an edge, in accordance with the study, Experienced Realtors have more skin in the game.

    They are dug in deeper and have many more connections than their “newer” counterparts in the real estate sales and procurement game.

    I have to agree because I see the seasoned agents, those with more experience and knowledge, ranking higher than the new agents.

    In addition, I have also noticed, if a new agent hits the pinnacle(top in production) within real estate – they don’t maintain it for long.  They tumble down like a house of cards.

    To go from zero to hero takes a lot of work if you are not an established realtor with a cacophony of people that trust and refer business to their Real Estate agent of preference.

    Be safe – thanks for checking us out today, we are local Santa Clarita realtors and look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs.  Reach out to us when you are ready and thanks.

    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.
