PRLog - Jan. 4, 2011 - LAS VEGAS -- Lori Ballen (Wekerle) has put together an experienced and professional team of Las Vegas Real Estate Agents in Nevada. Each agent offers a specialty Real Estate service such as: Las Vegas Short Sales, Military Buyers, First Time Home Buyers, Active Adult Living Communities, New Constructions and so on. The Ballen Group moved to Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas in September of 2009 after 4 years woth Coldwell Banker. http://www.youtube.com/
Lori has taken her years of Las Vegas real Estate experience and assembled the team based on services needed in the Nevada Real Estate Community. One of these services is listing homes and negotiating short sales with the bank. Nevada Short Sales are still on the rise, and experienced short sale agents are valued. Lori has Richard Ballen as lead listing specialist and short sale agent. Mr. Ballen has 4 years of extensive short sale training and hands on experience making him a top listing agent in the area. "Many Las Vegas mortgages now exceed the fair market value of the home." says Richard "Negative equity has become an increasing problem for the nation, but is excessive in Las Vegas. With the prices of Las Vegas homes decreasing, and the interest rates on previous subprime loans increasing, many Las Vegas home sellers have no choice but to negotiate with the bank to take less (also known as a “short”) on the sale of the property. The seller proves a hardship to the bank which could include divorce, loss of income, health issues and other various situations proving the monthly mortgage payments are impossible for the homeowner to pay. This is where we come in and help save them from foreclosure."
In addition to Richard Ballen, Las Vegas Short Sale Specialist, the team (which Lori has named The Ballen Group) includes Executive Administrative assistant Erin Camp, Buyer Specialist Bill Hargraves, Buyer Specialist Sean Bahr, Buyer Specialist Bob Watman, Buyer Specialist Ashley Spalding, Buyer Specialist Colleen O'Connor, a short sale processing team, buyer administrative services and call coordinator, and full time marketing department.
Lori's award winning team has offices at Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas on Durango with Debbie Zois. "Our team is built upon the Keller Williams Realty Models. When we were new agents, we had read Gary Keller's Millionaire Real Estate Agent and new that his models were what we had in mind for a Las Vegas Real Estate business. Gary Keller is a genius and we are truly blessed to be working amongst the great minds of Keller Williams Realty."
Lori explained that she is always looking for experienced agents to join her growing team. Although she generates the leads in masses for her agents, she only allows agents to join that have closed six or more buyer transactions in the past 12 months before joining the team.
