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:, look up the agent

Google the agent, www.  or

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



How zillow works at times, it’s a Mystery to me. RE/MAX Excellence, Penny O’Brien’s Opinion

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Hi there,

Being honest and realistic, I, an experienced Realtor for over 17 years full-time have a hard time sometimes hearing the word Zillow.  I understand that we are in the world of Internet and Instant satisfaction.  I understand it’s fun for people to search on their own for their home.  I understand how sometimes you feel like you’re a bother to keep asking about properties.   The truth of  Zillow is, they don’t and can’t possibly know how every housing market in the United States works.  They are not experts in the Las Vegas housing market.  I understand that they pull records from the Clark county Recorders office.  But, what they don’t always know is a few very important factors.  They don’t state how much money the seller contributed for the sale.  They can’t possibly provide all the important money and transaction information that took place or is taking place.

Thankfully, my clients 99% of the time stay away from Zillow.  Or, maybe they are searching but have enough respect for me to pay attention to what I can provide for them.  I can provide the most recent information available from the MLS.  It’s current.  I always have time to go above and beyond the service I provide for my clients and they know it.  I have the very best clients in the world.

If you would like to become my client, pick up your phone and send me a call or text @ 702.321.9383 Or, email me at

Enjoy your life, it’s the only one we get here (I think)
