Hamrick, who cut his teeth in the real estate industry in the early 1980’s, will discuss the current housing market in Southern Nevada as well as provide information about his company’s innovative Neighborhood Awareness Campaign (NAC). The NAC’s are a series of grass root initiatives that help educate homeowners about a variety of housing programs. CBPR sales associates are at ground zero going door-to-door speaking with residents and offering help for consumers who are upside down in their mortgage and don’t know what to do about it. “Even though ‘short sale’, ‘foreclosure’, ‘loan modification’ ‘deficiency judgments ‘are the current buzz words, most homeowners have little idea what these terms mean or what a short sale process looks like. We have assembled a team of real estate professionals to provide answers and accurate information that people deserve to know,” says Hamrick.
