Las Vegas Real Estate News

We live in California and became interested in purchasing our future home in Las Vegas. We had the pleasure of working with Kimberly. As a longtime resident, she is very knowledgeable about the area. We were interested in new development and Kimberly knew exactly where to take us. We weren’t too familiar with the town other than the strip so having Kimberly showing us around was great. For any out of towners, she’s a great relocation specialist. It made purchasing a home a great experience, she’s very personable and kept us in the loop through the whole buying process and nothing was a mystery. The loan process was a breeze, she works with some great partners in the loan industry and had provided us some great creative finance options.

Typically my clients are relocations and many have never actually been in their home until the day of move in. That can create a unique situation such as timing for arrivals of delivery trucks, buyers not being in the city at the time of close, pet-friendly hotels, etc… I provide information necessary to assist and make the transition as smooth as possible.

I create a trust with my buyers and most importantly follow through. Once we close I hold on to their keys for them until they arrive and when the big day is here and that van pulls up they are the happiest people moving into their new home and new city. The next questions are where are the nearest grocery stores, pet hospital, hospital, church, jazz clubs, etc.

Moving to a new city can be

In every Las Vegas Real Estate transaction, a relationship is built. I had the pleasure of having many great client relationships. However, one example was reaching out to a seller with an expired listing. Which means that it failed to sell within the contracted timeline. I reached out to this client about 2 years ago, but he had his property back on the market and eventually sold with another agent. I kept in touch with this client as he mentioned he had thoughts of purchasing other properties. We had a few discussions regarding his plans. I also kept in touch with him over a period of months, checking in with him to make sure all his questions were addressed. I also called just to say hello, and see how his move went. I consistently would send an email

I was invited to list a home and I brought my listing packet to the meeting, showing recent neighborhood sales and my marketing plan, along with my suggested pricing.  The sellers were meticulous in reviewing the comparable properties and then asked to list it about $15,000 higher than the most recent sale.  They were hoping it would take a while to sell, as their new home wasn’t going to be ready for several months.  The home was gorgeous, the market hot and the buyers ready with cash.  The home was sold in the first week for precisely what I’d suggested to them, which was $10,000 higher than the most recent sale of the same model.  The buyers still needed to sell their home, so they were happy to have the sellers rent back the home for several months

The last buyer I helped out was relocating to Las Vegas from the state of Washington. She was being relocated for work and needed a house in a 3-week timeframe! It is possible to close a deal that rapidly when working with a good lender and if the loan is easy to do, but this one ended up being quite a challenge. My client had two Huskies and required a big enough backyard to accommodate her puppies. She was finalizing her divorce and her financial situation was complex, so it was quite a challenge to get her the house. We put in a very reasonable offer on a house that had been on the market for 6 months but it was flatly rejected. Then came offer number 2, which was accepted, but the buyer changed her mind following the inspection. So back to square one.

While dealing with raw land in Cold Creek, I received a call from a gentleman who was interested in one of my listings. He had been referred to me by his sister, another agent at another company, who had worked with me when I took my first Cold Creek listing.  We met at a Starbuck’s, where I provided him maps and aerial views of the parcel (per his request) and driving directions to Cold Creek.  Three hours later he called and asked me to write up a full price, cash offer which I did, and we closed 2 weeks later.  Happy clients and agent!

My current listing is finally under contract, after 25 days on the market. The address is 2244 Arthon Dr., located in the Anthem Highlands neighborhood of Henderson. It has a fabulous backyard with gorgeous views. The interior is an open concept floor plan with a gourmet kitchen. It features 3 bedrooms and a den/office. A lovely courtyard on the side of the house can be accessed from the dining room, where you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding area. The sellers loved the house and were upset to leave but their work required them to have to relocate. The future buyers didn’t hesitate to put in an offer the minute they walked through the door, just like the sellers did last year when I represented them for the purchase!

My first ever real estate transaction was listing a piece of raw land an hour away from Henderson with no utilities or amenities.  It was a floor call and although my sales manager told me to pass on it, another agent said if I wanted to accept it, he’d help me.  It was in Cold Creek and I ended up getting the seller exactly what they wanted and representing both parties, so I got the full 10% commission! That was in 2001. 

Fast forward to 2017, after having moved out of state and then back, getting re-licensed in Nevada, my very first deal was with the same client.  She said she’d waited for me to come back. I listed and sold her home within 3 days for full price and we found their forever home.  I wrote up their offer, which they based on the

When Linda and Todd Pendleton heard that their friends, Margie and Bill Frederick were thinking of selling their townhome in Sun City Summerlin, Linda suggested that they meet with me. They claimed to already have two agents in mind for the job. Reluctantly they met with me last Wednesday. After showing them what I and the Tonnesen Team/Berkshire Hathaway have to offer, they invited me back the following day to list their property. When I came back to my office the following note was in my inbox/email:

A True Story from Debra Leatham.

On my listing, single family home did my due diligence by introducing recent sales and current listings for homes that possibly would be used for appraisal comps when setting the price of the listing.

All said the Seller decided to list the home at my suggested list price of $315,000.  We all felt confident the appraisal would come in at or near this price.

The offer of $317,000 from Buyer that had money in the bank to make up a couple of thousand dollars if the appraisal came in at less than the offer.

Appraisal came in at $312,000.  The buyer would not budge in price, so my Seller and I looked for other things of value in this transaction.

They were purchasing another home with a concurrent closing, making
