    Real Estate Help Calls from a Cop’s Perspective

    The LAPD was good to me.  The Citizens of Los Angeles were even better 🙂

    The transition into real estate was interesting to say the least.  If there is one thing that can be said about Law Enforcement from all walks of life – They all respond to a call for help.

    We had four levels of “Help” that could be broadcasted by officers needing support personnel to respond to their location.

    • Additional Unit – regular response from an additional unit – putting other units on notice that the incident could escalate.
    • Back up – Broadcast when an LEO wanted to have some “light help”, non-combative but verbal (example).
    • Assistance – This one is much more serious – Most viewed this as “very serious” – most of the units in the area started driving this way, one unit was assigned to respond as fast as possible without breaking any rules of the road.
    • Help – This is the top level of “officer needs help”.  There was one unit assigned Code 3(lights and siren), more units responded code 3 if requested.

    With any of the aforementioned “requests” you could always count on other law enforcement officers, even if they hated the one Santa Clarita real estate help callgenerating the call for help, to respond.

    There were never any issues with helping out a Brother or a Sister LEO(law enforcement officer).  It was code, an unwritten rule, something that was expected.

    Within real estate there is no “Help Call”. Most others are independent contractors and not interested in helping. I thought this to be very interesting and I was glad that Paris was the main “full time” of the business shortly after I entered the real estate on a part time basis in 1998.  I was still all cop at that time.

    Paris was tried by fire – was ousted for being new.  Was talked too about splashing too much in a pond and making waves.  She had to endure those situations time and time again.  Looking back at our slow climb to the tops of the Real Estate charts, everything has changed.

    We are recognized as being top Realtors due to the amounts of clients we serve, the numbers of homes we sell and the numbers of buyers we are working with at any given time.

    The Difference?  We have a different philosophy when it comes to other real estate agents.  We recognize their calls for help and Respond no matter what.  Be Safe – Talk soon and let us know your opinions by commenting 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.
