LIVING IN LAS VEGAS, SUMMERLIN, HENDERSON, SW AND NW LAS VEGAS LIVING IN VEGAS FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

HOWDY!!!!!!

let’s talk about living in Las Vegas, Henderson, SW, and NW  Las Vegas.  I can honestly say it’s all EXCITING!!!

Henderson  vs. Summerlin: Henderson and Summerlin are both wonderful places to live.  I hear all the time that there’s the Summerlin haters and the Henderson Haters.   It’s funny to me.  I wonder if they have EVEN lived in these two communities.  Seriously, I have experienced living in both areas.  I loved them both.  I raised my kids in Summerlin, moving from Iowa it seemed like more of a small home town environment.  The little town I moved from was populated with only 800 people, give or take a death or birth.  My children exceeded in their education at all schools they attended in Summerlin.  It was a wonderful time in our lives.

After they graduated I realized I could move around the valley, So, I moved to the SW for a little over a year.  I really loved living there, it was near the 215, shopping was friendly, good walking trails.  Very nice housing and neighbors.

After the SW I moved to Henderson, zip code 89052.  One of the best zip codes in the United States.  I too loved living there.  It was a great experience.  Lots of really nice parks, shopping and amenities everywhere.  It was a wonderful place to live.

My next move was to the far NW.  Way out in the country where there’s very few street lights.  Horse country.  It was really nice for me at the time.  I lived a very quite and kind of silent/isolated time.  It was so very peaceful.  I would walk for miles, some times over 14 miles a day.  The storms like to hit that area too.  So, to see some amazing light storms and experience the country life was very pleasant.  It reminded me of my life in Iowa and growing up on the farm.

Now, I live just outside of Summerlin.  It’s very nice there.  I do miss the country, I miss it very much,  It’s not too far from where I live so I can drive out there and get my country fix.

What part of the valley are you interested in knowing more about?  I can help you get moving, just simply call me. 702.321.9383 ask for Penny.

ENJOY your day/evening.

Are you looking for employment?  A new Home?  A Rental?  A vegan Restaurant? A new school?  Pet sitting? What are you searching for?  I more than likely can help and guide you in the right direction.  I’ve lived in Las Vegas for about 20 years.  Leaving Iowa to move to Las Vegas was such an exciting decision.  I never looked back, Vegas felt like home immediately.

Las Vegas is a very exciting city, with so many fun things to do.  Both for free or a charge.  My new little adventure was to visit where our Hockey Team practices.  The Golden Knights with the NHL is such a wonderful addition to our city.  They practice in Summerlin, it’s Open to the public.  If you’d like more information about their schedule or practice times feel free to contact me.  I’d be happy to assist with questions you have about Las Vegas.  Call 702.321.9383 ask for Penny O.

GOLF Courses Closing in Las Vegas, Desert Shores, The Lakes, Water conservation

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Hi there,

Yes, it’s true many courses are going to be closing if they already haven’t.  As Las Vegas continues to grow in population our water supply is being pushed to the limit.  If you ever fly over Lake Meade you will see the drop of water level on the shore lines against the mountains.  It’s been taking place for a long time and people continue to say, Oh, it’s Las Vegas we will find a solution to our water shortage.

If you look around some of the areas of the Valley for instance the Lakes.  The Lakes have manmade lakes.  Several, they are tranquil and beautiful.  I actually have several clients who bought in the Lakes for the purpose of having the Lakes to enjoy.  You can’t fish at these lakes.  They are there for cosmetic reasons.  There are often many ducks who have made their homes in and around the lakes.

Desert Shores also has a few manmade Lakes.  I do foresee in the future that these Lakes will not be around.  With the rising prices of water and the water conservation program taking place.  It just doesn’t make sense that homeowners associations will want to continue increasing their HOA fees in order to keep or maintain these water features.

Are you looking to buy?  Sell?  Call NOW, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

American Dream Las Vegas Nevada. FHA, VA, CASH and Conventional FINANCING

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Hi there,

What does the American dream of owning a home mean to you?  Here in Vegas, the Sin City Capital of the World.  The fun adult playground. The city with so much to offer. The City who has fantastic sunshine throughout the year.

Many first-time home buyers are afraid to purchase.  The truth is in most cases it’s better to buy then rent, and in most cases it’s cheaper.  Plus, you don’t have a landlord and others to deal with, IT’S YOURS!!!

A majority of my clients are first timers. I call them my Real estate virgins.  I absolutely love working with them.  If you are interested in buying a place, please give me a call and I can help you understand the ins and outs of buying.  I will become your Realtor for life.

Make it a great day!  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Where do you want to live in Las Vegas?

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017
Where do you want to live?
Renting ties you down until your lease expires and you’re free to move. But moving can be a hassle – a huge hassle – and that’s one reason why renters often become buyers.Do you really want to live in a place where you may be forced to move because your landlord wants to move in? It could happen; just ask your friends.When you buy, you buy more than a house. You buy a lifestyle. Backyards. Pets. Great neighbors. Block parties. Community. A sense of belonging. The list goes on and on.

It’s simple: living on a street with other homeowners is different – and often better – than moving again and again. It’s more lasting. More solid. More secure.

Give me a call and let’s find you a place to purchase.  Penny O’Brien GOWithPENNY@yahoo.com 702.321.9383

Please, DON’T get Scammed in Las Vegas, NV when it comes to renting, buying or selling a home.

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Hi everyone,

This is a very serious blog.  I can not begin to tell you how many stories I’ve heard about people being scammed by someone acting as a Realtor, is a Realtor or homeowner who’s gonna rent their place out.  There are some really horrible people scamming others.  Here’s a couple of examples:

One Licensed NV Realtor was managing rentals for many landlords.  What he was doing was receiving the rent monies and not paying the landlords saying that the renters were late on payments etc.  He got away with this for months.  Taking the rent checks and putting the money in his pockets.  He did eventually get caught and return to his country never to be found.  He was fined by the NV Real Estate Division, but I’m quite sure non of the landlords and the RE Division will never be paid back.  The payments in fines were over $100,000.  I can’t remember the exact amount. Heck maybe it was near $300,000.  Seriously, How can someone do that to others?

How about all the people who scam people off of CL and lots of other websites.  I have heard stories of People posing as Real Estate Agents.  Sending the lease agreement and collecting money, NEVER to be heard from again… YOU CAN NOT trust all Realtors. Please read below:

Here’s a list of thing you can do to protect yourself.

Go to the website: Realtor.com, look up the agent

Google the agent, www.http://SunnyLasVegashomes.com  or

http://www.remax.com/realestateagentoffice/lasvegas-nv-89147-pennyobrien-id21784670.html

You’ll see me, Penny O’Brien

Facebook them,

Look them up on Zillow,

Call their office number, check to make sure there is an agent by that name affiliated with them.

Call GLVAR and see if they have a Realtor by that name

Keep Checking, DO NOT STOP until you know in your gut that you are dealing with someone you can trust.

call me, I’m trustworthy, I have so many clients who can testify and share their experience while we worked together and time after.  I have happy clients.  You’ll be taken care of with me.  I’ve been helping people for over 17 years full time.  I love helping others.

Enjoy your day/night/weekend and times to come.  Penny
