New GLVAR President Expresses Optimism for Las Vegas Housing Market

Congrats to Patty Kelly, the new GLVAR president. She has been in real estate for some 30 years. Her biggest challenge for this coming year: how the public sees the Las Vegas housing market. Real estate has suffered some in recent months, which is a good thing for those who are making purchases. They are getting great values. However, many are hesitant because of news surrounding housing in general. Among other Realtors in the area she sees a much different view:
"Las Vegas has a strong and diversified economy and we remain one of the fastest-growing areas in the country. We will concentrate on re-enforcing our message to consumers that real estate is still your best long-term investment," she said.
She has a great support system and a strong future as the city ramps up for a much stronger market.
