real estate: Being a buyers agent versus a listing agent - 02/26/20 02:19 PM
Buyers agent aka Buyers representative - they are synonymous terms.
That is the title for the agent who is representing the home buyer. The reason why this may be of concern to a home buyer is the fact that most agents want to be listing agents. If they have a team in place they may want you to work with someone who does not normally work with sellers on their team. 
This was important for me to bring up because of the team concept. Some work well within a real estate team and the leader does a great job with client care. 
The "client care" is extremely … (2 comments)

real estate: The Real Multiple Listing Service or a Violation? - 02/17/16 09:45 AM

You know Zillow and Trulia - they are not able to represent the actual MLS - at least I thought.
You know that most agents pay a website builder to build their systems - Like Boom Town, LinkuRealty and the others...
You know you are member of a Multiple Listing Service through your Board of Realtors? We pay the fee to be able to access the Real MLS - don't we?  Or is it just semantics?
That MLS supplies your "IDX" provider with access to listings so you can enable a search system on your website - that you had built for you. - … (1 comments)

real estate: Foreclosure update presented on - 01/13/16 08:04 AM

We are returning to "normal levels" of bank owned, real estate owned, foreclosures, short sales and other types of distressed real estate listings.
On today's real estate show, we focused on the local makets within the Santa Clarita Valley. We also talked about other 'markets'.
Addressed was the question of why it takes so long, sometimes, for the REO agent to obtain approval for any of the buyer which approach them via their own realtors.
We also spoke about the failsafes the banks have in place in relation to the foreclosures and why it's better to have your own realtor.
Reach out me - I'm … (0 comments)

real estate: My passion is not the real estate - 05/28/14 10:51 PM
Funny thing, Real Estate is not my passion. Having sold homes and represented clients in their sales and purchasing of real estate, I realized that is not what makes my heart sing.
It's something entirely different.


real estate: This Question may burn your buckle :) - 04/30/14 01:21 AM
It's Funny, when we talk real estate, there are typically many questions that get asked about buying and or selling a home.
Some are interesting and this one came up the other day from someone that had been working with another in the real estate procurement game. Apparently, they were misinformed.

real estate: Smoke and a Pancake? - We are flat like the second one... - 03/31/14 11:38 PM
Our local Santa Clarita real estate market have been exhibiting a flattening trend over the past few weeks. We are having inventory added to the "saleable" residential real estate listings, but there are buyers, just enough, that want to buy them.
Our local markets are still well within a sellers sphere, but with the addition of more inventory, we will see the shift start to become more aggressive, changing from a sellers to a buyers market.
Only time will tell is we get enough real estate inventory to make this change in the coming months.
Thanks for taking the time to … (0 comments)

Short Sales - don't you just love them.
With such a constrictive inventory, as we have in So California - when a property hits the market - the phone rings off the hook.
Typical questions:  Do you have any offers, how much are those offers, what can I do to get this home for my client?
Some start with the third question - where we respond, "write us your offer".
We will be treating everyone fairly.  We will be giving all offers to our seller to review, even in the case of a short sale.
We guide - but don't influence … (2 comments)
