Working for a Santa Clarita real estate team

Santa Clarita leads for real estate agents and realtorsWhy would anyone want to work for a Top Producing real estate team?

How about because they have an established real estate business?

Established Sphere of Influence

I came from a SOI – Sphere of Influence in Law Enforcement. Currently we spend over $3,000.00 in publication print to the men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department.

Those are full page color ads that have been running for several years.

If you were to ask most of the members of the LAPD and LASD about Paris911 – they would be able to answer as to who we are and what we do.

Having those ads, plus my personal and Paris’ connections within these agencies, are paramount to our continued success in real estate.

We have seen many other advertisers, that are in real estate, come and go, only giving the ad several months to “take hold”. However, it takes years to become a trusted resource and it takes more than an ad!

Established online presence

This one was not as easy. Our online exposure reference to our Sellers real estate listings and procuring buyers took time. In fact, it takes at least 3000 words of content a day, learning new real estate technologies to share, and keeping our past and present real estate buyers and sellers happy with feats of real estate prowess.

When a person searches for Santa Clarita Realtors, we are on the page 1, search results, in the organic results of Google for a reason. We write a lot of real estate related content.

When someone searches on YouTube for Santa Clarita real estate related keywords, we appear at the top of those searches as well. With over 1200 real estate related videos for buyers and sellers, we are Top in that Space.

We also do a daily Santa Clarita radio show, with more listens and quality content than any other local real estate related radio show.

Tried and True lead generation

There are many methods to procure leads from online sources. However, one must work the large 3 methods to become Top Producing real estate agents.

Either you pay for leads, procure leads with stellar content, or work the Social Media Channels in the “right way”.

We do all three with various online systems. Pay per Click, Content marketing, and Social Media exposure gives our team an edge and is a great fit for a “willing and able” buyers representative that is willing to embrace the Paris911 Team Brand.

Referral Based Realtors

We want our clients to refer us. We make that point a lot throughout the real estate process. If you don’t ask, it is not on the top of mind, when others are asking who knows a good Realtor.

That works with our Top Producing Strategy and we are proud to say that over 70% of our current clients come from our referral base.

At numbers of 50-100 leads a month that we generate, from online only, not mentioning referrals, past clients, publications and mailers, we are always interviewing real estate agents that want to be part of something larger than themselves.

We have no names on our jerseys – only our REMAX of Valencia CA Team Name – Paris911!

When you are ready to see if you have what we are looking for, and it’s not your leads, reach out to The Paris911 Team at REMAX of Santa Clarita CA!

 

 

Santa Clarita Lending – One Great Question to ask upfront

Saving money when borrowing money to buy a home

Save money when Buying a Home!

Who are you going to be using when it comes to finding the BEST Santa Clarita Area or Valencia CA lender?

May I suggest a person that employs them at more than 10 a month? Where would you go to find that type of person?

That would be your local REMAX of Valencia CA Top Producing Realtor Team. They will know the good from the bad and they will be able to guide you with questions to ask the local real estate lenders and mortgage brokers.

Questions that will keep a real estate buyer safe when it comes to borrowing money to buy real estate in the Santa Clarita Valley, Greater Los Angeles, the Great O/C and in other parts of the world.

We have included one such question today in our latest YouTube Video reference to “What questions to ask a lender when wanting to interview them to be hired to lend you money to purchase real estate.”

The Local Lenders will know the answer to this question after running your numbers in the “loan approval” system. However, most can give you a great idea if your “numbers align”, as you say they will.

Most people know if they have “okay” credit or “stellar” credit. However, some have become victims of “identity theft”, so it may be a real “surprise” when their credit is run by a local Real Estate lender.

Please reach out to our REMAX of Valencia CA Top Realtor Team when you are ready to attend our crash course on real estate that my Paris911 Team holds in our REMAX of Valencia Offices.

 

New Los Angeles County Residential Real Estate Update by REMAX of Valencia

REMAX of Valencia Homes for saleThe Santa Clarita Valley Cities are located in the County of Los Angeles California.

When we are searching for real estate data and information for our REMAX of Valencia CA clients, we see that looking at the “bigger picture” is important.

The data and value derived from looking at the larger Greater Los Angeles County real estate and housing market helps our REMAX of Valencia clients make better decisions along the way.

Some of the information that can be gleaned by our market reports is whether now is a good time to sell, a good time to buy, or a good time to invest in real estate.

We can also deduce whether the Santa Clarita and Valencia CA areas are the best place to do so. That is why looking at the “bigger picture” profits our clients in one way or another.

Additional Resource:  Check out the Why Paris and I chose to be with REMAX of Valencia CA Realtors

Of course, the Buying, selling and investing questions can be answered in the negative also. Our market reports also indicate whether it is a Bad time to Sell, Bad to Buy and a Bad time to invest.

Real Estate is mostly relative. While the “overall” picture of Los Angeles County continues to show the lack of inventory and being waist deep in a sellers market, The Santa Clarita Valley Cities is showing a different set of variables.

Our Days on Market timeframes have been on the rise. The inventory in the Santa Clarita Valley cities has been increasing. The Days on Market timeframes, the time it takes to sell homes, has been on the rise and more.

Have a look at our latest YouTube Video produced by my REMAX of Valencia Area Team – Paris911.

Don’t let your friend sell you a home

Real Estate agents friendsSo, as not to beat a dead horse. Friends as Realtors. Some are truly stellar.  Some are horrible.

If I had a dollar for every time, just this year, that I have heard from our buyers that they had turned down a friend in the real estate business, from representing them, I’d have at least 15 additional dollars.

Some agents work well with their friends. However, it is only those that separate Business from Friendship that make the grade.

Never Assume - Agents that are friends with their clients always make this mistake. They “assume the sale”. They think it’s okay to “sideline” some important piece of information that any buyer, even their friends, might have found useful.

Always be honest - Tough words but something that needs to be referenced. Friend Agents can “assume” more than can be accounted for. They may not tell you things that should be spoken about. Just because they are friends of yours and know everything will work out okay. But what if it does not?

Some “Friends” are different - It should be stated that when you are about to embark on utilizing your friend to buy or sell a home, tell your friendly agent, “Don’t leave anything out!!!”  “Treat me as if I did not know you!”

REMAX of Valencia Realty is hiring interns and the real estate interested for training as Real Estate Agents

Wanna Be a Realtor?

Paris and I have developed a training system for those that may be considering becoming licensed real estate agents.

We start with a signed “secrecy” agreement, rules and then advise of our methods which include lead generation, marketing, internet procurement, building out online profiles, website lead gen., and the traditional methods of farming for real estate leads, starting with your sphere and then hitting the pavement and the phone.

Why do we care?

“We had way too many of our clients wanting to be licensed Realtors, so we thought we could build a win win internship program at our REMAX of Valencia CA offices within our direct Realtor Team of Paris911.”

What is knowledge worth?

As far as pay goes, it depends on what can be brought to the table.  Knowledge and training are powerful and expensive. When I was with the LAPD, they ventured to say our Police Academy Training alone, which lasted 6 months was worth in excess of $75,000.00.

That did not include the probationary period for me as a police office which continued for an additional year.

The police department has a limited ceiling of income. There is also a huge risk factor. Papercuts are some of the worst scenarios that can happen in real estate, besides of the occasional lawsuit :)

If you are going to start on this venture, make sure you have a well established database and pack a lunch, it will be a wild ride for sure. Be safe and Thanks….

Real Estate should be more than about selling houses for a Realtor

Real Estate Protection is my PassionOne of the most interesting things came about during an interview I was doing with one of the local reporters.

She asked me what my passion was. I pondered the question.  “My Passion”, surely she meant business related?  We were speaking about the local Valencia CA real estate market, but what is my passion related to my Real Estate business?

After a few moments I stated, “My passion is the Protection of the client…”

I dug deeper into my previous statement and found that this is not something that came out of left field. This is something that I had been doing a majority of my life.  Protecting….

Roosevelt County Sheriffs Department: 1987-1989

Otero County Sheriffs Department: 1989-1990

Los Angeles Police Department: 1990-2013.

Realtor of the Paris911 Team RE/MAX of Valencia:  1998-Present

“More cop in me than anything else…”

I’m proud to say that my passion, the thing that makes my heart sing about my business is being able to educate a client, protecting them and navigating through the real estate processes.

Real Estate Sellers, prepare your home as a model home

When driving around the Santa Clarita Valley, you will notice new housing. New Construction and New home builders are out in force, hopefully not “overbuilding”, but providing a service to the real estate buyers that want new homes rather than re-sale.

The first best option is to make sure you are represented by your own Realtor when approaching the new home front.

Additional Resources – Use the Paris911 Team at REMAX of Valencia to buy a new home.

REMAX of Valencia California Offices is where both Paris and I decided to hang our licenses so long ago due to their sheer size and power. We thought in the beginning and know now, we made the right decision for our clients and ourselves. In fact, we had several options, and still do today, to leave RMEAX of Valencia and to move onto other Real Estate companies in Valencia CA. We will not, our's has been entirely too successful to the Branding of REMAX and it being the most powerful and successful real estate brand ever developed.
