Paris and I started in our real estate representation business back in 1999 and 1998 respectively.
During the time in which I was licensed, I was a full time cop. I remained so for an additional 9 years. I then severed my full time position with the LAPD and remained as a Full Line Reserve officer. A reserve is a volunteer that receives basically no paycheck. It’s was a blessing training the future LAPD officers in Firearms and Tactics. Continuing, at least for a few sessions, the training of new motor cops with their firearms transition course which I helped develop.
Super Blessings indeed.
Paris and I chose REMAX of Valencia for several reasons, Primarily three were the primary deciding factors.
1 – REMAX was and still is the most successful brokerage in the Santa Clarita Valley Areas.
2 – REMAX, likened to the LAPD, has the best training and more successful agents.
3 – REMAX has a corporate type approach to a real estate business model. We viewed this, and still do, as being a compliment to our way of operation and the best for the protection of our clients.
After Paris and I were taken advantage of by the realtor we chose to represent us in 1996 when we bought our first Santa Clarita Valley home, we worked toward becoming Realtors.
I had been licensed a few months when Paris entered into our business in a full time manner. I could not, as I was still a full time LAPD officer.
This was something that any successful real estate business needs, at least one full time Realtor. I remember starting without her and working a full time job and doing real estate on the side was a detriment to my real estate clients, the few I had.
When Paris joined our clients were elated to always have a connection point. When I was in court, Paris was there. When I was working LAPD, Paris was there. When I went overtime Paris was there. You get the picture.
That is the way it was and still is today at our REMAX of Santa Clarita business. Paris is there.
