    Time Management will make you a better provider

    If you are in a business in the Santa Clarita Valley, the best position in our current market is by being the “only one” in your niche.

    Within our real estate business – We represent Police Officers and Deputy Sheriff’s, with all of their real estate needs, but we help other people as well.

    Business_Tips_by_Santa_Clarita_business_ownersAt the start, our niche – before it was popular, was founded on LEO’s(law enforcement officers)…  This was because a LEA, (law enforcement agency), was where I worked.  I was an LAPD, full time, officer from 1990-2007 and a reserve officer from 2007 to 2013.

    Today, that is still a niche of ours, but it has expanded as Paris911 has become a more recognized local BRAND for Real Estate.

    There are over 200 REMAX agents at REMAX of Santa Clarita CA.  We are the only “Paris911 Team”.

    So, it’s like a brand inside a brand.

    Here is our morning ritual – or at least mine, as I am the marketing hub of Paris911.

    I shut down my cellular phone after awaking at 0400hrs (yes, that’s 4am, before the cock crows, and before the sun comes up)…

    I shut down my phone so I don’t lose my train of thought.  When younger – the train was much harder to de-rail…  Today, well, I’m older 🙂

    I climb aboard my Treadclimber – I set the speed for 3.1 mph at level 8 – and start walking. When I have concluded my 30 minutes of walking – according to the machine I will have blasted 620 calories…

    While on the Treadclimber – I read real estate news posted on my Feedler – I used to have my feeds on Google Reader, but that’s gone – Feedler is my iphone and ipad app, it’s a “paid for” app, but it’s great.

    I send myself articles of interest to my Evernote (it plugs into Feedler)…

    When finished – I walk back into the house and sit down at my computer and start writing.

    I polish off at least 4 articles and also interact on social media.  Note, I said “interact” – not “plug myself and Paris911 selfishly…”

    I also do our morning Podcast/Radio show and post that up on SoundCloud – using that widget for my blog – at least one of them – depending on the news.  This Podcast is typically done on my iPhone via my Bluetooth headset while driving  to Starbucks…

    On my way to the office – I listen to one of my most recent “books on tape” – (remember tapes??), via my ITunes account.

    It is now about 0930hrs…  (I showered and shaved somewhere in there too 🙂 )

    I then start to look at my email, replying to any and all inquires – sending leads(this goes on 24/7/365), to our buyers agents and making that all important “first touch”…  This continues at this pace until about 12p – when I will start calling back those that have called, or text back those who have texted….

    All is done 7 days a week – However, our Santa Clarita real estate office is attended by Paris or I on weekends…  My Paris911 Team of buyers agents do work weekends.  I will attend any pre-schedule meetings on Weekends by appointment made during the week.

    It works – We are in the top 5 Teams at REMAX of Santa Clarita, for YTD – 2013…

    Let’s talk about your schedule in the AM – what do you do and what don’t you do…

    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. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.
