connor macivor: Why do we forget so soon? - 02/24/09 02:40 AM
Where were you in 1990?  Do you remember the Savings and Loan fallout?
June 17, 1990, I packed up my car about 1000 miles away from Los Angeles in my home town of 30,000 people.  I loaded the car with every possession I had and kissed my mom and dad goodbye.  I was going to Los Angeles to fulfill my DREAM of becoming a LAPD officer.
I arrived a couple of days later and had about 200 bucks in my pocket.  I was not sure what I was going to next.  I had tested before with the LAPD and was just … (3 comments)

connor macivor: Dare I say that I am witnessing a Sellers Market? - 02/23/09 01:17 PM
In the Santa Clarita Valley we were at 117 Foreclosures listed for sale amongst all of the cities located within the Santa Clarita Valley:
Saugus Stevenson Ranch Valencia Castaic Canyon Country Newhall Acton Agua Dulce That was two weeks ago.  Today there are 80 REO/Bank Owned Foreclosures on the Market.  I did not have time to break down DOM to see if they are priced in accordance with this declining market - but they very well might be.
Fannie Mae has slowed their release to a trickle - and other banks have followed suit.  They are awaiting to see where exactly … (1 comments)

connor macivor: How are you approaching Real Estate? - 02/19/09 03:18 AM
Maybe it is in your approach.  Business is there to be found, you just need to find those that are wanting to invest at this particular time.
You need to make your self aware of the numbers of Foreclosures/Bank Owned each day by setting yourself up on an e-mail search that you get into your in-box daily so you can know. 
When you know those numbers and have seen that search drip for about a week - then you will be much more self confident on the telephone and when responding to e-mail.
Sellers - they are out there - Distressed, … (0 comments)

I just gave you a link to a gateway of sorts that will have what Google is going to be up to this year.
If you are a fan or not of Google - you have to admire the thought process that goes into their search engine and the other bells and whistles they offer.
We are big fans of g-mail and I abandoned Outlook for that product, it works with pop3 etc. 
So if you send an e-mail to it will come through to me via gmail.

connor macivor: Current Foreclosure Inventory in Santa Clarita by RE/MAX - 01/23/09 09:31 AM
We still are in print advertising - but not in the usual places where there are no police agencies that make sure what you place is current and active.  Therefore - There is a lot of time taken when I prepare out ads with our Graphic Designer - Once such ad has our current inventory and I update these on a Monthly Basis.
You will notice that we are not only lip service and what I say about us having an expansive base, even though being head quartered in Santa Clarita, is not only true but verifiable.

connor macivor: The best way to Search for Homes for Sale in Santa Clarita and elsewhere. - 01/13/09 03:34 AM
On your quest for everything good and just - you might come across some misinformation in the process - what I would suggest is that you have a look at this "eyejot" and see what is happening on the Search for Real Estate.
Multiple Listing Services are probably your best bet with regard to accuracy and the ease of obtaining the information.  However, I have seen a trend that they expect you to register before giving you access - that is bothersome - we have resources that I e-mail to my clients, foreclosures, tract codes, even a distressed property Radar - … (0 comments)

Jeff Turner turned me on to this resource and I must say that everytime I spend any amount of time with this cat - or as I like to say, Brother - my mind is released from the Usual and Staus Quo and enters new territory.
RE/MAX International should consult with Jeff - I am sure that we could be bigger and better than we already are with some tweaking, fine tuning and a thinking cap that is truly out side of the box.  Infact with Jeff's approach, the box does not exist.

Let me see if I can convey to you how important it is to play it forward and never to tear anyone down, even competitors.  When you have all of that negative energy - you are doing yourself harm.  If you have the attitude, why them and not me - why are they successful and why am I starving - then you are on a short walk down a shorter plank.  It is extremely dangerous and it will rip you and your business apart.

It is interesting that there are still those people out there that will do whatever they can to take business from others. First of all, I, as probably you, remember when we were new in the Real Estate Business.  Those were very difficult times that were coupled with distress, stress, agony, emotionally filled days, and many sleepless nights.  It is not easy being new at anything, let alone something that derives itself from "Trust" being a corner stone and the masses viewing those in that particular field as "crooks". We have a couple, they came to us from the LAPD and … (1 comments)
