What can be learned at a REMAX of Santa Clarita Open House

    REMAX of Valencia Real Estate agentsDuring this past weekend, my agents were out in force hosting open houses – We had one on Paragon and a couple of questions that were asked are worth mentioning here in writing.

    First – We had a cute couple that were inside and very interested in the real estate listing that we were hosting open: See more about the paragon listing at SantaClaritaOpenHouses.com

    Mom is a Realtor, semi retired, in Sacramento. They wanted to know if their “mom” could represent them. It is 100% affirmative. However, it may require their mother to join the local Board of Realtors. While most of the contracts are the same around the entire State of California, there are certain forms that are different.

    It’s these forms that may cause issues when attempting to write an offer on a real estate listing that is 375 miles away.

    Now, having said that, I would never tell a Realtor’s Son – they “should not do anything”. In fact, for the record, I would never want to exclude anyone from anything that may be “profitable” for them.

    In this case, they are going to get the “commission” from mom. My suggestion was to let us handle them as our buyers and give Mom a Referral fee that she would be able to give back to the kids.

    Second – New Houses! Aren’t they just wonderful? It’s hard to beat the “presentation” with regard to an open house.

    They have been outfitted as if by expert home stagers. And – They were 🙂

    A couple came into the open house, on their way to a new home center.

    When I found out – I asked if they wanted me to represent them with the new home builder?

    They said, “No, we want to save our money for possible upgrades…”

    I responded, “You don’t understand, my services as your very own Licensed and Insured real estate representative are free!”

    There is no charge to have me represent you. The builder pays the cost for you to have your very own Expert Realtor on your side throughout the new home buying process.

    In fact, there is no extra you will get by using the new home representative alone and leaving your own personal real estate representative out of the transaction.

    What do we have to gain by representing you? First – We get the relationship with you and that is good for our referral based real estate business.

    Second – We get to monitor the new home buying process.

    Third – We get to ask the “right questions”, equating to additional bonuses and incentives when buying a new home.

    Fourth – We get to be a part of your transaction, monitoring the paperwork, making sure the lender is giving you the best deal, and keeping you appraised with our “full new home disclosure” process.

    Fifth – in the future, we will be able to sell your home.

    Sixth, and lastly, we obtain a commission from our representation of you with any of the new Home Builders

    Be safe – search well and let me know if I may help you at any time in the future. We will be there for you as we have been for others. My Pleasure.

    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.
