Las Vegas, NV, November 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Ballen Group, a top team of Las Vegas Real Estate Agents under the brokerage Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas who recently received multiple awards for their Las Vegas real estate production, continues to build an expert team of Las Vegas Real Estate agents and short sale processors. On Tuesday, October 19th, The Ballen Group was recognized for top achievements in Listings, Production, and marketing. Receiving such awards is significant to The Ballen Group as they had just made a big move from a Coldwell Banker franchise to the Keller Williams Family. "The move was disruptive and chaotic, but necessary", says Lori Ballen, Team Leader for The Ballen Group.
Lori Ballen, Team Leader for The Ballen Group, is diligent about hiring the right talent for her team. With Richard Ballen, a known Las Vegas Short Sale Specialist with a high rate of closing short sales in Nevada, as lead listing agent, she knows that many more homeowners are facing Foreclosure and they can help. "Our recent move to Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas has allowed us more freedom and motivation to build. Although we have been able to help a lot of Nevada Homeowners in the past, this move is providing us everything we need to expand. An expansion that includes the right short sale agents will allow us to close even Las Vegas Real Estate (along with other areas of Nevada)."
