Our cellular phone service adventure!!!


As a Las Vegas Maid Service and a Las Vegas Realtor, we use cell phones a lot. We have been with Verizon for the last four years and had added a Metro PCS line for Property Management.
After a few months with Metro, i found that there service did not meet my needs. The pop up ads on the screen and poor sound quality I experienced was not working. We decided to upgrade our Verizon phones to Droid and move on without the other service.
Setting up service with Metro was easy, cancelling not so! It took me four calls and over one hour to get the correct department on the phone, whom then kept trying to keep me. They could not believe that I did not like my service? Of course as a Las Vegas Realtor my phone was ringing this whole time. Eventually I was able to cancel, thank you for that experience.
The switch to Droid was even more fun….My phone came, it got connected… and proceeded to fail, the screen had a defect. Now the fun began, the Verizon store refused to assist, and so did the first phone contact. Since I bought it over the internet, through Verizon, I had to send it back and then re-order. Finally I got hold of a supervisor, superior/rude attitude, and am now awaiting a replacement.
Moral of my story, check out the return policy before you buy. As a Las Vegas Maid Services company, we need to be in contact with our customers daily, so this phone issue has been big for us. Good luck out there with the phone companies, each and every one!!!


FREE Golf Tournaments at OB Sports Faciliites!!


As a Las Vegas Realtor and owner of a Las Vegas Maid Service I get to interact and work with a lot of golfers. OB Sports runs several golf courses in town; Alliante(north part of town), Angel Park(Summerlin Area), and Legacy(Henderson/Green Valley). They offer a great deal for both local and out of town frequent visitors for lower price golf, through their annual players card. Unlike some card, this one gives more than lower price tee times. The card also offers a free punch card that has; two free tee times for the cloud 9 course, several putting course sessions, several driving range passes, and four free tournaments per year. The card has cost $99.00 per year, if you buy it early, and now included a free round on your birthday and a free hat, a pretty darn good deal. As a Las Vegas Realtor, I sell golf retreats to clients from all over the world. The OB card also works for them, although it is more expensive for non residents. But what a way to save some money.


Free Stuff to do in Vegas-Festival of Lights


As a Las Vegas Realtor and owner of Las Vegas Maid Services I am always asked by visitors if there is anything special to do when finished with the casinos. Every year at this time, the Ethel M chocolate factory, sets up their cactus garden with holiday lights. On Friday and Saturday evening they also have a Santa in the garden. The view of the lights is worth the trip and the entrance is free!!! Make sure you dress warm, as the nights can be very chilly.   They have a store on site where you can also get hot coffee, and of course chocolates. Plan on spending 15 minutes to an hour walking the garden at your own pace. The garden is located off of Sunset in Henderson and is about a 15 minute drive from the Strip and is easy to find with plenty of parking.  Don’t forget you strollers, for the family types.


Tip of the Day!! $1.50 Movies in VEGAS


Yesterday, with the cold weather stopping my golf day, I was reading the paper and looking for something to do, that would not break the bank. In the movie section was an ad for the Tropicana Theatres at Pecos and Tropicana on the Northwest side of  Trop. All movies here are $1.50 each, which means I can treat my Las Vegas Maid Services staff to an evening at the movies, and popcorn with a soda, without taking out a loan.  Dont try to sneak in food/drinks, they do search your bag at the entrance.   We went and saw the Wall Street sequel, gotta love Gordon Gekko. The theatre is comfortable and clean, for a theatre. The picture was large and clear and the sound was OK. As a Las Vegas Realtor, I am constantly asked for things to do and places to visit. This theatre will be on my list!!

Appliance delivery-the good/the bad/the ugly!!


As a Las Vegas Realtor, I sell a large amount of properties that do not have appliances. I have found the best service for delivery and pricing to be, Pacific Sales located in Henderson, off of Stephanie. Yesterday, one of my clients bought a Meridian condominium, which needed a washer/dryer. The gave me a 1/2 hour call before coming to the unit and showed up on time. The delivery and install was professional and complete.
Other times I have waited a five hour window, only to have the nameless company not show.
My favorite is when a company shows up with damaged product. Do they think we will not notice?
Appliances are a large investment, definitely shop around for price and service.


Gas Mileage-Why is it the same as in 1976?


As a Las Vegas Realtor, I do a lot of driving. I drive a 2003 Hyundai XG350 which has been a great car. It gets about 30 m.p.g. which is not bad, being a small luxury sedan. I was reading an old magazine from 1976, and there was an ad for the Fiat Strada, which went over 105 m.p.h. and got over 30 m.p.g. It amazes and saddens me, that over 34 years ago the same gas mileage was available. We have the computer and cell phone but the same or similar mileage per gallon? Hard to believe.


No Kitchen=No Financing Available?


I always love it when, as a Las Vegas Real Estate Agent, I come across a home I am showing and it has no kitchen. By this I mean, no cabinets/counter tops/plumbing/or appliances. Basically making the home considered unlivable. Most of these homes are repaired or listed as Cash Only, however once in a while a mistake is made and I show it to a Buyer with financing needed. When dealing with financing, you need an appraisal. With no kitchen, it can be impossible to get the appraisal, and therefore the loan. Buying a home with no kitchen can be profitable if it is below market enough. Some investors look for these homes, as long as after the repair it is still below market for a flip or renal/buy-hold. Our Las Vegas Handyman Service has worked on these homes. With kitchen replacement, patience is necessary!! Delays do happen IE; wrong sink comes in, counter-top is cut incorrectly, cabinet is defective etc.
These homes exist, but make sure you know the costs before purchasing one.


Selling a Home, Sometimes Personalization can be a problem for the sale!


As a Las Vegas Realtor, I show a large amount of homes to buyers. Yesterday, we saw a very nice home that matched the buyers criteria exactly. Unfortunately, the owner had installed a copper colored tile and painted the entire house orange. While it looked professional, the home would required thousands of dollars in renovation to bring to a neutral color. When planning on selling a home, I recommend staying neutral, or even white. Remember, the next owners will want to decorate in their preference. Installing permanent flooring and wall coverings that are costly to replace can have a negative effect on the sale.
