No, it's not limited to Las Vegas. You usually hear only the 'bad news' about kids. The positives, good news, or good kids...those examples, ideas, that can actually benefit everyone, just don't get equal attention. So let me tell you about just one of the good news kids, and I'm sure there are millions more across the country just like him, that you'll seldom hear about. This kid Dave was a fantastic athlete with amazing eye-hand coordination. His father was also a pilot and noticed his skills transferred to home computer flight simulators, so at age 12 his dad took (10 comments)
Rhodes Ranch Las Vegas - Golf Community Photo Tour - 07/24/08 05:34 AM
I was out to preview a few homes for a client, so thought I'd share a quick glimpse of it. Rhodes Ranch is the 1500 acre master planned oasis in the southwest side of the Vegas Valley just off the 215 beltway. It's guard gated with amenities that include the R Club community center that includes pools and a water park, and playgrounds throughout. It's wrapped around the Rhodes Ranch Golf Club, a public course, similar to it's sister development Tuscany Village in the southeast valley and located in Henderson. There are a number of neighborhoods in the community that offer a (2 comments)
Las Vegas a Gamble? - See for Yourself - Photo Tour Included - 07/21/08 03:07 AM
Some years ago when asked if I would ever consider living in Las Vegas, I would have said 'No way, there's only casinos and gambling there, and nothing else." I was suffering from not really knowing what was there, or the vision of what Las Vegas was to become. Fortunately the consultant, that is also my photographer / IT guy, who shares my office and my life was a business associate back then, and he revealed all it's secrets. There is not only amazing life and beauty beyond the Strip, there was an evolution taking place with a strong and redudant (4 comments)
Real Estate Agent Scam Revealed! - 07/16/08 10:13 PM
Yes, there's another fine example of the biased media out, this one attacking real estate agents. Let me begin by saying that reporting 'news' has gone from presenting facts to allow readers or viewers to form their own opinion, to that of tunnel vision to influence opinion and create drama. REALTOR® Aaron Auxier has written about the trend called 'News Framing' I've shown examples of how the mainstream media often conveniently reports selected information, and failing to add crucial details from their own sources. The media thrives on ratings, or hit counts on the Internet. It's how they generate their income, by (9 comments)
Las Vegas Real Estate Agent Horror! - 07/10/08 07:08 PM
I always try to do my best for my clients. As their agent, I believe it's my job to perform in their best interest in finding a home that truly suits their needs, and offers the greatest value for their particular situation. This becomes even more critical for my out of town clients. They may be unfamiliar with all the lifestyle choices and unique communities that can be found throughout Las Vegas, or simply overcoming the difficulties of home searching from hundreds to thousands of miles away. Having made my own cross country move, I try to provide the type of assistance I would expect for myself. I spend (6 comments)
Las Vegas Home Sales Up Again! - 07/10/08 04:02 AM
Yes, contrary to all the gloom & doom the media likes to blast out about Las Vegas, home sales are up for the 6th straight month. Inventory levels also continuing to remain stable. A short blurb from the Las Vegas Review Journal. Edited to add - A more detailed story from the RJ You might also want to take a look at one of my posts from a short while back, about some of the media spin about the Las Vegas housing market. Those truthful stories seem to be well hidden, and don't have the same attention getting clout as the 'shocking' headlines. It's why you need to look much closer at the local (4 comments)
The Lakes Las Vegas - Pictures of this Hidden Gem - 07/07/08 10:13 PM
I was previewing some homes for a client today at one of my favorite spots in the Vegas Valley. It's also a favorite of my photographer, who was a little upset he had to use his backup camera since his favorite Nikon is in the shop for cleaning. I won't post all 300+ pictures he took, but think these will give you a good idea of this hidden gem. No, this isn't Lake Las Vegas, or Lake Mead, but just as beautiful. It's a community called simply 'The Lakes', and covers about a two square mile area. It's not far from (8 comments)
