I received a call yesterday, "Hello, this is REMAX's Paris911 Team, may I help you?"

A male called, later identified as Russel said, "I have a question about foreclosures.  How is it that you are showing those that have not come up as being for sale?"We are with REMAX of Santa Clarita for a single reason

I responded, "We have a system, which we pay handsomely for, that shows the Notice of Default Filings with the courts.  This system is not displaying the "old data", it is current and updated frequently..."

Russel commented, "If that is the case, can other real estate agents pay for a similar system, or are you the only one allowed?"

"Of course they can", I said.  "The question is would they want to and would they be able to plug in the system so those searching for real estate can make the best use of it?"

I think Russel got it, he said, "Thanks for answering my questions, I happen to be a Real Estate agent in San Diego - I appreciate your transparency and talking with me about the system you are using..."

"You know", I said with a pause,  "I would have answered  your questions, even if I had known you were an agent from the beginning, even if we were working in the same city or area :) ."  (click here if you are a realtor and want to be on our BEST Tips List)

It was at that point that Russel got it.  I know real estate is a competitive business.  I know that some agents would lie to save a deal or throw their mother under the bus if it would make them more $$$. However, there are some, I'd say most, that do the right thing day in and day out.

BTW - if you are interested in the NOD - notice of default - listings Russel was talking about - click here.


Those that are creating the hate, by not being honest and doing anything to turn a buck no matter who gets harmed, for the most part, are a very small - but well publicized - cross section of the Professionals in our industry.
