What do you mean you are working with another agent?

    remax scvnest logo toll free of valenciaReal Estate salespeople are plentiful. I am not going to mention the dime a dozen thing (whoops).

    However, there are over 1 million real estate licenses in the United States.  That’s a bunch.

    Only a fraction of those, “over a million” licensed real estate agents, are truly active. Then you have another fraction who are actually Card Carrying Realtors(in good standing). Then another fraction who do the “lion’s share” of the business.

    Those real estate agents who meet all three levels mentioned, are the top 1% of realtors nationwide. The top 1% of realtors are we. However, of the top 1% of realtors, there are differences.

    By the way – if you are working with a Realtor, please do you and them a favor. If they are doing a good job for you, if they are working hard for you, then stay loyal. Don’t fall into the trap of switching agents because some other agent, after they find out you are working with someone else, starts saying things you want to hear and that sounds too good to be true.

    Offer multiple connections

    Relationships with other local agents. Being part of the local networking groups. Members of the Chamber of Commerce, as examples.

    Points of contact

    While agents tout about offering their clients expandable teams, you need to know what you are going to be hiring going in.

    It could be that you want to work directly with the agent you hired to do the job. Maybe you don’t want to work with any of their team. Knowing how they operate is going to save you a lot of frustration.

    In the real estate industry Teams get a bad wrap by those agents who don’t have teams, saying they are not going to serve you well. Teams get praised by those agents who have them, saying they are critical to your success as a real estate buyer/seller.

    You will know

    I will say that it’s a feeling. Something you know is right. You will feel taken care of and know that you seem to be the only client of the “right realtor” whom you are using. Not that it’s like dating, but a good Realtor will make you feel very important and be there for you.

    Be safe – search well and please let me know when you are ready. That is if you are not working with another realtor 🙂 – Have a GREAT day and please let me know when I may be of great assistance to you and yours. I’m Connor with HONOR Macivor with REMAX of Santa Clarita – SCVnest.com.

    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.
