    Santa Clarita open houses and theft – Train your real estate agent

    LAPD and Open Houses

    Coming from an LAPD background has certain privileges   That Training is second to none.  Going through the police academy back in 1990 was not easy.  Those that went to academy’s with the LAPD before that will tell you that they had it ever harder.  OMG – I bet those that went through in 1942 were tortured 🙂

    Another thing this training prepared us for is hosting open houses.  The interesting thing about open houses is that the agent does notSanta Clarita sellers real estate listings for sale know who’s visiting.  It could be a cute couple that wants to get into your jewelry boxes, watch drawer or change jar…

    Asking for ID at open houses 🙂

    It could also be your neighbors.  In fact, it will be your neighbors, most of them 🙂  However, what is to stop your real estate agent from letting in everyone that wants view the home?  Nothing at all.  When an agent is advertising an open house – they can “mandate” people to sign in, at your “the sellers” request.  That is a smart move, but what if someone does not want to sign in?  How do you know they are using their real names?  What about checking their identification?  It can get quite extreme – if you are going to allow your agent to host your home as being “open”, school them.

    Hey, the game is on…

    Don’t let your agent sit on the couch, with a beer, bag of chips and the game playing on your big screen.  They should act like they are working a dinner party, where your home is the guest of honor.  They should be working the room while keeping track of everyone coming and what rooms they are visiting.  The BEST open houses are done by at least two Real Estate agents.  What is why we have a team in place with three buyers agents, two team leaders and a licensed assistant, we have our clients open houses manned by at least two licensed “team members”.

    Why Multiple – It’s better…

    In this way, we can monitor the activity and make sure those visiting the open house are not stealing from the trusting sellers.

    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.
