    Switching from PC to Mac for our Santa Clarita real estate business

    Santa Clarita real estate technologyWhen it came to upgrading our systems for our real estate clients, Mac was not really in the picture for our real estate team.  We had fancy PC systems, communicating with one another – multiple screen systems so our clients could see what we were looking at when they were seated at our desks and one heck of a infrastructure that was PC based.

    We did not give Mac much thought and that was probably why.

    PC was something that I started with when I was a young man and with my dad who bought our very first personal computer. The Sinclair TI (Texas Instruments) TI-99.

    At that time, you could buy 16k of memory that snapped onto the back of the machine for an additional $99.99.

    I remember reading many a PC magazine and locating programs that I typed on to the “horrible” keyboard.

    I then saved those programs on cassette tapes.  I would re-upload the programs, mostly games, with the same cassette deck, when I wanted to play them at a future time.

    This was pre Commodore 64 folks 🙂

    Now, some of you are probably not getting the “cassette” or TI thing. The 16k of memory is also mind baffling due to the huge amounts of storage that are today contained in SD cards.

    Cassette’s – What we used to listen to music with. Magnetic in nature and stored information.  Not much, but did the best job at the time.

    TI – Texas Instruments:  They were spear-headers in the computer game and developed some of the first Personal Computers.  Now their Scientific Calculators is how you may know them today.

    We will keep you posted with any “ground breaking” changes to our methods during the transitional time from PC to Mac with our Santa Clarita real estate business.  For now, I’m enjoying the simple learning curve.

    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.
