Hi there everyone,
Happy St. Paddy’s Day
The Planter’s Daughter
When night stirred at sea
And the fire brought a crowd in,
They say that her beauty
Was music in mouth
And few in the candlelight
Thought her too proud,
For the house of the planter
Is known by the trees.
Men that had seen her
Drank deep and were silent,
The women were speaking
Wherever she went –
As a bell that is rung
Or a wonder told shyly,
And O she was the Sunday
In every week.

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
You’ll see me, Penny O’Brien
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

I hope you enjoy this little treat I found on President’s Day while hiking near Red Rock Canyon here in Beautiful, Sunny Las Vegas. We had just received a couple days of heavy rainfall, so, I am guessing this is part of the beauty that came along with the rain. The sound of this running water is so amazing. This is rare for Las Vegas.
Take care, your friendly Las Vegas Realtor, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 RE/MAX Excellence, GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com

Hi there everyone,
Once again, thank you for your time and checking out my blog. This is a short and sweet blog, just like me, short and sweet. I’ve been in the Las Vegas Real Estate Market for over 16 years full-time. I’m honest, trustworthy, fun, professional, experienced, educated, patient and fun to work with. I always answer my phone, I am respected by my peers. I know what the heck I’m doing, I don’t fake it until I make it. If you’d like you can speak with any of my clients, they will be honest and share with you their buying or selling experiences with me. I love my clients. They are totally amazing people.
I work with First time homebuyers.
Single Family Home Buyers
Single Family Home Sellers
Cash, conventional, FHA, VA, 184 HUD program, down payment programs, you name it I can help you with your financial information you may have questions with. I am here with you through the whole process.
And, Sellers, there is no BS when it comes to selling your home. I’ve heard agents for years tell sellers what they want to hear whether it is the truth or not and you know what they have no problem lying to the seller/sellers. I’m not that kind of agent just so you know. I have Integrity, and lots of it.
Call Me, Penny O’Brien: 702.321.9383
Testimonials: Here’s just a few words from some amazing clients:
Penny O’Brien has been my real estate agent for the past three months and just closed the deal on my Summerlin home. Penny has been a pleasure to work with, earning my respect and admiration for getting my family through the stressful task of selling a house. The time spent with Penny has given me the opportunity to observe a true professional at work. Her ability to get the job done, and done right has certainly paid off.
I am also a real stickler for well-documented paperwork and Penny certainly showed her ability to perform this task. Her paperwork was flawless, leaving absolutely no loose ends behind. Penny was also available at the most inconvenient times and frequently made trips to my home at all hours of the day and night. Simply put, I would recommend Penny to assist all of my friends and family when their real estate needs.”
– Warren Hensman, Summerlin
“Penny made the selling of my house easier than I ever imagined. She not only brought in a lot of traffic into my property, but she sold it quickly… at full price. I highly recommend her.”
– Michael, Summerlin, LV
Penny is the greatest. She was a great help in helping me understand all the paper work. I left it in her hands, I trusted her, and my house sold
within a week! I got every penny I asked for. If I ever move back to
Vegas, and am in the market for another house, she would be the first
person I called.

Yes, you heard me right. If you really want to become familiar with your potential new home and communtiy I highly recommend checking out the neighborhood many times. Morning, noon, night and in the middle of the night. To some people that may sound extreme, but, really is it? You’re going to be living there for a number of years and yes, things change within neighborhoods. Houses get sold, people get pets, people become landlords instead of living in the dwelling. People die, get divorced, have more kids, maybe a business or housing community develops after you move in.
I always recommend to my buyers to check on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Departments website, http://www.lvmpd.com and go to a sex offender site Watchdog.com. There are many ways to look into what’s really going on within the community. And, of course one of my favorite ways to find out more about the neighborhood is to talk with the neighbors. Most people are more than willing to talk with us about their community.
Now, if you’re buying a New home, then that’s a completely different situation as far as talking with the neighbors, what I love about new communities is that everyone is new to the area. You all become neighbors at the same time. You can build your community into a community where people know one another and it’s exciting to have new neighbors and a new home.
Whatever your Real Estate needs maybe I can help. I’ve been enjoying help buyers and sellers for over 16 years full time here in Southern Nevada and Did I mention I have the most amazing clients. Take care of yourself and please do give me a call, text or email whichever works out best for you.

Hi there everyone,
Yes, it’s very true, Canadians love the warm weather of Las Vegas and Florida. As my Canadian clients say, we love the palm trees, love the sunshine and love the fun. Canadian buyers in my opinion are amazing. I love working with them. They are always so excited to be buying a part of Las Vegas. And, I personally have a blast with them. They have very high energy and really good intentions.
I have noticed lately a little switch in the Canadian buyers market here. Many are starting to sell. I’m not sure why. It kinda makes me sad. I hope that if you are Canadian and are reading my blog that you give me a call so I can help you with your Real Estate needs. I’ve been helping buyers and sellers for over 16 years full time here in Vegas.
Take care everyone,
Your Friendly, fun Realtor, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Yes, Nevada is a state that allows Real Estate Rebates. Only 10 states do not allow Rebates. So, for example for one of my clients they received $1500 at closing. They greatly appreciated and bought themselves things for their new home that I helped them find.
If you are interested in knowing more about how the rebate works, feel free to give me a call. Enjoy your day or evening.

I’m Penny O’Brien with RE/MAX Excellence. I love pinching pennies when it comes to helping my buyers get their perfect home. I have been in the Real Estate business for over 16 years full time here in Las Vegas. What’s good about that is several things but mainly the friendships I’ve made with other Professional Realtors, Lenders, Title Companies, Home Warranty companies, Inspectors and many vendors.
When I am helping a buyer purchase a home I have the experience on how to communicate with the Listing agent. I do it with ease and professionalism. That’s very important these days because it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to be a Realtor and that being said there are a whole bunch of people that get into Real Estate for different reasons. I have experience in the industry. Which when it comes to buying or selling should be very important to you. I love helping my clients. You can talk with any of them and they will share with you our experience while searching for their home. Their experience during the whole transaction. I make it fun for them and we really have a good time. I greatly appreciate all of my wonderful clients, they are truly amazing.
I work the whole valley, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, North Las Vegas. I always have and I always will. I help clients who are interested in condos, townhomes, Single Family Residences, High Rises and Rentals.
P.S. Working with a RE/MAX agent like myself is not more expensive than any other Real Estate company, it’s a big plus to you. Thank you for your time.
If you are in the market to buy and or sell, give me a call, text or drop me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy your life. Penny 702.321.9383….. GoWithPenny@yahoo.com

Happy Day Everyone,
So, this is going to be a fast and easy way to explain some of the differences when purchasing either a condo, townhome or SFR, Single family residence.
Sometimes one of the biggest issues are:
- Square Footage.
- Shared walls.
- Yard Space.
- Gated vs. Non-Gated
How many choices fit your needs/wants.
- Bus line transportation.
- Here are a few explanations to this.
- Yard space, usually with a townhome and SFR you will have some yard/courtyard space.
- Pets, Lots of places have restrictions on what types and how many pets you can have.
- CC&R’s, this is a BIG issue. Most condo complexes are VERY strict on what you can and can not do, have or be. LOL
- Some people don’t want or need a big house or yard.
- Gated vs. Not Gated, again, it’s a personal choice. Some condo complexes have very high fees per month because of the community pool, exercise room and Gate.
- Bus line, many apartments and condo complexes are near bus lines.
- Wall space, I think we all know that when we are sharing walls the chances of hearing your neighbors increases.
Do you want or would you like more information about Las Vegas Real Estate, I’m just one text, call or email away..
ENJOY your day, I say so..
take care, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383. GoWithPenny@yahoo.com
