Town Hall Series Helps Distressed Nevada Homeowners

Free meeting being held at Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas, features discussions with Realtors, attorneys and mortgage specialists.

Las Vegas, NV, September 22, 2010 --( Prudential Americana Group continues its free Town Hall series on Saturday, September 25, to help distressed homeowners evaluate their options and plan their next steps. Following a successful event in August, the Town Hall series includes discussions with local real estate executives and attorneys for those who are facing foreclosure or upside down in their mortgages.

Scheduled speakers include Tisha Black-Chernine of the Black & Lobello law firm, mortgage and lending experts and Mark Stark, CEO of Prudential Americana Group. Black-Chernine is one of the city’s leading experts in real estate law.

“There were approximately 5,600 notices of default filed just last month in Las Vegas,” said Mark Stark, CEO of Prudential Americana Group. “Thousands of people are upside down in their mortgages or facing foreclosure. At our Town Hall meetings, you are with people who are all in the same boat and truly want to do the right thing…they just don’t know what that is.” Stark said the free event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon at Green Valley Ranch Resort, gives homeowners a chance to ask questions and get honest advice on their options.

“Every situation is different, but there are some overriding similarities to what your options are,” said Stark. “In some cases, you need to know the laws before you make a decision. In others, you need to discuss the steps for a short sale with a Realtor. This group of professionals is committed to helping homeowners and the Town Hall meetings are a perfect place to meet the experts plan your next steps.”

To RSVP for the Prudential Americana Group Town Hall meeting, sign up online at or call 702-320-1650. It is being held Saturday, September 25 from 10 a.m. to Noon at Green Valley Ranch Resort.

Expected attendance at the Town Hall meetings will include homeowners of distressed properties and those interested in learning more about home pricing, short sales, foreclosure, modifications and government programs like HAMP and HAFA.

“This meeting will give you information to help you get out of your current situation. If you are underwater in your home or in some phase of the foreclosure process, you need to make some tough decisions and likely don’t know what to do. At the Town Hall meeting, you’ll meet experts who know exactly what you’re going through and can help you move in the right direction.”
