What are pocket listings and where can they be found

    One of the terms that exists within Real Estate Circles is the term “Pocket Listing(s)”. These are typically homes that are going to be on the “market for sale”. Those homes are not “officially” listed and the only access point is the “well connected” real estate agent.

    When I tell our clients about being able to view listings before the hit the market, the giddiness starts. There is a bit of excitement that builds when a client realizes that their chosen professional is totally “plugged in”.

    It all comes down to the “I’ll scratch your back, if you scratch mine” philosophy. In real estate, the very industry itself is built on relationships. When we have listings that other agents want for their buyers, we give those whom we are connected with a pre-marketing glimpse. There is a Quid Pro Quo that occurs as a result of our pre marketing efforts with those agents that the strongest members of our Real Estate network.

    Besides that, the BEST real estate agents, find themselves being indoctrinated into groups. These “networking groups” are paramount for a Realtor’s Client’s Long term success. We have several groups that we are members of where we are able to pitch our clients needs and gain access to the “pocket listings”.

    Check with your real estate professional. Make sure they are plugged in within the local real estate circles. See if they routinely have listings that other agents want for their clients. That may be your key to getting what you want in any Real Estate market.

    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.
