Their flyer was titled: “Free Market-Info Community Services Event” and they drew a packed house at the South Valleys Public Library in Reno.
The awesome ladies and one fine man were four of my my Realtors at Dreams Realty: Elise Westerlund, Mary Mihaila, Angeles Wanco, and Claire & Shawn Kirby. The five of them took community outreach to heart, and developed a wonderful 90-minute evening seminar for the local community.
They had made arrangements with local Attorneys, a Certified Public Accountant, and a Mortgage Lender, (where Spanish speaking translators were available), and scheduled the event not as a real estate sales or promotional event, but as a true community services informational event with a Q/A session with the professionals.
The Attorneys covered loan modifications, state mediation, the pros and cons of short sales & foreclosures, deed in lieu, and information on one of Nevada’s laws that went into effect last October and hugely impacted REO in the state.
The CPA (and a crowd favorite) spoke about tax consequences, 2012 capital gains tax and the IRS, and Exemption Law through 2012. The Mortgage Lender discussed Hamp 2.0, HARP, how quickly can you buy after short sales and foreclosures, and their overall credit implications.
Finally, my team of exceptional Realtors presented information on the process of short sales, foreclosures, and loan modifications.
My SHOUT OUT to my Realtors is to ACKNOWLEDGE AND APPLAUD THEIR TENACITY AND CREATIVITY IN PUTTING TOGETHER AN ATTRACTIVE FLYER THEY CIRCULATED THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY, AND WORKING WITH THE LOCAL LIBRARY TO SCHEDULE AND PUT ON THE EVENT.
KUDOS TO MY FOUR AWESOME LADIES…and ONE FINE MAN!
