Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, Southwest, Northwest, North, EVERYWHERE

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
Ok, let’s talk about food. What kind do you like most? Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Italian, American, or Chinese?
Here are a few of my favorite Restaurants:
buca di beppo
Buffalo Wild Wings
Pin Kaow, they have three locations
Many casinos have Buffets that usually give you a big variety of different ethnic foods
Javier’s inside the Aria
China Polano at The Cosmopolitan
D.O.C.G. “Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita At the Cosmo
Chada Thai and Wine
Michoacán Gourmet Mexican Restaurant
Leticia’s Mexican Cocina
Pho Kim Long Restaurant
Ok, let’s talk about Landlords. Want to be one? Many people think the idea of owning multiple properties is exciting and a great financial move. And, of course it can be a wonderful investment. Or, like all things in life it could turn out to be a living nightmare. I’ve seen both sides, so here’s a little pros and cons list for you to consider:
Interest Rates are low
Home Prices are pretty low
Steady income (as long as the property remains occupied etc. )
Owning Property in Las Vegas is a desirable area of the U.S.
Las Vegas housing market has low inventory
Tenant doesn’t pay rent
Want a piece of the Las Vegas Housing Experience? Give me a buzz, I work with many investors and I can help you too.

Have You ever noticed how the smell in the air changes over night sometimes? I live 4.5 hours from the California beaches but I swear some days I smell the ocean. That Lovely Fresh ocean salty breeze.
I looked up to see how many houses were for sale to fit my clients criteria. 1995 sf or more, 4 bedrooms, 1 bedroom to be downstairs, outdoor pool and under $310,000. I believe there were only 74 in the whole Las Vegas valley. Las Vegas weather for the most part is typically warm. I always see a switch in buyers when this time of year comes around. The air changes, the sun is a little warmer, you start hearing more birds chirping all the signs that spring is almost here. The big difference for us here in Las Vegas is that spring can feel like summer. Where in other parts of the country spring feels like spring. We kind of get a little head start on the warm weather.
Many business start putting out summer related out door dining. Everything starts growing toward being outdoors, hence the buyers consciously or subconsciously wanting to buy a home with a pool. It maybe something they never considered before depending on where they maybe moving from. Or, Maybe they just want the ultimate “party” house. I know when I moved to Vegas from Iowa, having a pool was a must. I promised my kids we’d have a house with a pool and we did. There were Lots of fond
Just last night I showed a couple 2 homes with swimming pools. Something about the desert heat and seeing the pool is so refreshing. It’s a great time for sellers to put their homes on the market too, especially if they have a pool.
Enjoy everyone. Your friend, Penny O’Brien
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.

Penny O’Brien who helps with Penny Pincher Buyers and Top Dollar Sellers, Las Vegas Homes, RE/MAX agentTuesday, January 24th, 2017
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
