Why a real estate sign may appear with no listing on the internet

    Good day everyone – Yesterday evening, I was inside of a local Grocery Store and received a phone call on a new listing that we just had a sign installed at within Valencia CA.

    While I was speaking with the nice lady, who turned out to be not so nice and hate Realtors, we were disconnected.

    I had to go to Ralphs on an emergency “coffee run” and at the Ralphs at McBean.  If you know that particular ralphs – there is ZERO cellular phone reception, except when the planets are aligned.  That is when this call came in – the planets must have been aligned 🙂  At least with me and my ATT service.

    Especially, when you get by the butcher department.

    I was only there to buy coffee, but that is not the way it played out. I also bought some heavy cream, some cheese and a case of water.

    By the time I got back outside I had 6 missed calls, and a hateful voice mail, showing that this lady had some type of horrible experience by a past realtor.

    I called her back, texted her, and left a voicemail message.  I let Paris listen to the same voicemail message saying, “I don’t know what you are up too – I think there must be something fishy going on, and more…”

    At this time, I am still confused – but this is how it works.  We get a signed listing contract. We call the sign installation company. Within a couple of days the sign goes up and, within a pre decided time frame, the property goes into the Multiple Listing Service and starts the internet population.

    When you call on a sign, most agents will give you all the information you need and even set up a time when you may be able to view the home for sale.

    As was my intention.

    However, if they get disconnected from you, don’t think the worst.  It maybe that they were buying coffee in Ralphs and had no cell reception, being cut off and not hanging up.

    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.
