REMAX of Valencia Photos removed from Yelp for the Paris911 team

There is truth in there somewhereYelp is a great resource, but at the end of the day, you are going to have to make up your own mind.

Your OWN opinion, may in fact differ from what Yelp and their Yelpers Think…

I’m a Yelper myself and I have had opinions of businesses that totally differed from those others who reviewed the same location. In fact, my opinions seem to run on the “I have a higher opinion” side than on the negative side for most businesses I frequent – Maybe I’m just too positive – but I am who I am :0

So hence our REMAX of Valencia Photo album being removed. They were nice photos of the offices, but because they came from a lowly agent, such as myself, and not posted by the IT person, apparently they weren’t good enough. ๐Ÿ™

Ah well, there are bigger things to worry about than “Who’s the Bost?”

This are the photos we had posted of REMAX of Valencia, on Yelp – See what I mean ๐Ÿ™‚


See what I mean – Yelp sure is smart ๐Ÿ™‚ Ah well, as Homer Simpson says, “you cannot fight city hall…”…

We did our weekly recap on our Paris911 Realtor website where we discussed the blog articles produced by our REMAX of Valencia Team.

The Santa Clarita and Valencia housing inventory is less than 500 units for sale. That is horrible news for the real estate buyers in our local Valencia home buying market. However, the sellers are rejoicing due to them being able to have REMAX of Valencia sell their real estate and homes at a premium!

Considering Selling your home – find out what it’s worth!

We are not at peak prices, which Valencia Experienced back in late 2006 and early 2007. We are between 12 and 10% off of peak prices.

Lenders interest rates are wonderfully low, even with the .25% rate hike we observed happen a few weeks ago.

Lender Tip: If you are not going to use a local Santa Clarita Mortgage broker or bank, and are going the “online only” route, make sure you get a physical address of the lender and verify it with another source, try Yelp ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, you want to make sure the business you are using really exists. Because, if you run into someone scamming you and don’t find out until zero hour, you need to know where to send the correspondence or even where to visit in person.

Buying a home is a HUGE deal – make sure you are well represented on all fronts. We meet with all of our REMAX of Valencia home sellers and buyers in person. Of course, we are more “in your lives” than the lender. We are advertising, marketing and selling your home, we are showing buyers of real estate, homes, condos and townhomes – our’s is a more “personal” position.

I’m Connor – thanks for checking out today’s real estate posting for REMAX of Valencia. I went ahead and added a few of the above photos back to Yelp at REMAX of Valencia. I also added Paris’ photo because there are a couple of other agent’s photos on that page.

We will see if I get struck down. The other day I was speaking with someone from another real estate company who remarked, “It’s hard to compete with Yelp because they are in it for the money…” ย I suppose I can see it that way, at the end of the day, I suppose we all have to make a living. It’s just some of us are running “cleaner” than others…

REMAX of Valencia Bad Agent Solicitation of another’s Client

YouTube Presents Bad Agent Video 1Risk concept. Sign question on bear trap.

When it comes to representing buyers and sellers of homes, from time to time, they are going to get hit up by other agents.

Some do this by innuendo and other’s do it more vicariously.

However, the rule is that it’s against the rules. Once you find out someone is represented by a real estate agent, it’s time to stand down the agressive “conversion” action.

It’s time for the agent to cease their roll….

However, we had an incident that occurred to a couple that we have been working on the “buyer side” for the past several months.

This past weekend, they encountered one of the most aggressive Realtor Teams they ever had. This team was not stopping after they explained they were working with our REMAX of Valencia Paris911 Team.

They did not stop after our clients asked them to. They continued, almost in a “sick” way.

So much so, our clients fired off a direct hit via Yelp toward the agent team that had been pressuring them.

In our offices, when we are representing those wanting to buy real estate, we talk about open houses. We talk about the methods employed and that most agents stand down once they find out our clients are already represented.

They do so because they get the “ethics” of continuing to pursue another realtors client after they have said “NO – STOP!”

Apparently, these agents did not get it, forcing our clients to rip them apart on Yelp!

I got the call, not from my clients, but from the agents involved. They wanted me to “make” my clients take down the review. ย Again with the, “Make” and “forcing”. Apparently, not a single lesson was learned – sad but true.

We are Local REMAX of Valencia CA Realtors. Our Team is SCVnest and Paris911. I’m Connor MacIvor, and I’m glald to be of service – protecting and serving your real estate needs.

Please let me know when you are ready to move and I will be there for you as I have been for so many others!
