Gay Realtor Las Vegas

Alrighty, I figured it was time to get this blog official so I created a fully functioning Gay Real Estate in Las Vegas blog for all my clients looking to work with a gay realtor here in Vegas.  It’s the same content that’s on my Luxury Blog but it has a little more flare and more of my own personality shines through.   It’s important to that I connect with more people this year and I’m really trying to leverage social media with my blogs and real estate.   Our community is up to us to change and direct. I’m always telling people to quit complain and DO something about your circumstances, so I’m taking my own advice.   On my new blog you will be able to:

I look forward to working with all of you and making 2011 an incredible year!

The Las Vegas Market is Hot

Ok, I should clarify that: Segments of our market are hot. I’ve been looking for some properties for my clients in a master plan community called Summerlin on the west side of Las Vegas. A lot of my clients are investors coming back into Las Vegas to capitalize on our down market. Properties that are listed around the $150 sq /ft price range in Summerlin, and under $350K are selling like hot cakes. Yes, we’re even seeing multiple offer situations on many of them. So contrary to frightening media report of a complete collapse of our market, there are still parts of town that are selling like crazy. In fact, I’ve personally seen banks intentionally price a property so under market in order to create an “unofficial” auction. Click on the picture below to see the recent sold properties since March 1, 2008. Take a look at the list price versus sales price. Many times the sales price is higher than the list. How is that possible in a down market? Foreclosures are ruling the market right now and banks want to get them off of their books. If you’d interested in foreclosures in Las Vegas, please give me a call directly at 702-683-2169 or email me with questions. Thanks!

Client Testimonials for Felipe Crook

Here are what some of my clients had to say about working with me.
“Felipe made what could have been a tedious process, fun and enjoyable.
He took the time to get to know me, really understand my needs, and find
my perfect home in the perfect location.  Felipe’s knowledge of the
market and ability to effectively negotiate resulted in a bonus of over
$40,000 in addition to the generous incentives already offered by the
builder.  Wow!  I would highly recommend Felipe to friends and family
for their future real estate needs.

Tate South

“My partner and I purchased a very nice home in Las Vegas and Felipe Crook was instrumental in helping us find this home.  In a matter of few days after we began looking, Felipe found us the home that we were looking for.  He was patient and understanding of our needs and very knowledgeable of the area that we wished to live in.  We will definitely call upon him again for any of our future real estate needs.”

Top 5 Remodeling Projects

2008: What’s Coming
Green Anything: Can’t you tell how the idea of being “GREEN” has finally reached the boiling point? Thank God people are starting to realize how finite our resources are. So logically the best place to start being more green is in our homes. Senator Obama lastFelipe Crook Realtor Las Vegas night in the presidential debate said something that I totally agreed with last night, he said “The first place we can make the biggest impact the quickest is in our consumption of energy and goods.” Wow, finally someone in charge says what the public needs to hear. LESS IS MORE!! Energy efficiency is the new black; Prius, the new Lexus. It’s interesting that green’s popularity appears to be driven by economics, not by the environment. No big deal to environmentalists, they win either way, but homeowners are winning on their electric bills by opting for ENERGY STAR appliances, high-efficiency windows, whole house fans, solar panels, and anything that reduces resource consumption. It’s here to stay.

Cutting Edge Appliances: I just replaced my old washer and dryer for a new front Gay Real Estate Agent Nevadaloading, energy efficient washer/dryer. I am amazed at how little water is used but my clothes are very fresh and clean. Using a GAS dryer instead of electric also dries your clothes faster with less energy. From dishwasher drawers to refrigerators, everyone seems to be interested in space-aged appliances that only seem likely in James Bond films. Lift ovens can drop down and rise up so you don’t have to bend over with heavy dishes. Steam-assist ovens utilize steam to heat and produce healthier, juicier foods. Computerized refrigerators have a screen right in the door where you can access the internet, check email, and bring up stored recipes. These little gems just made kitchens that much better. And everybody wants one.

Outdoor Kitchens: A popular trend from Texas across the Southwest desert, this warm climate addition has fully caught on in other climates. I’m seeing this trend more and more in the houses I show, and the right combination of style and functGay Las Vegas Realtorionality are a huge selling point for sellers! The perfect addition for those who like to entertain and enjoy the outdoors, these projects can be as extensive or stripped-down as space or budget allows. Most choose to fully equip theirs with a fridge, sink, garbage disposal, and of course, the centerpiece, the grill.

Home Theaters: I LOVE big screen tv’s. They have become so sleek and sexy, and the Gay Las Vegaspicture quality you can have on your television is incredible. Just walk into a Best Buy and see how prices have come down dramatically while the quality has increased. The home movie viewing experience has reached new levels, and the reason these remodels are so popular is simply because the technology has caught up with the demand. Factor in that the average gamer is in his mid-30s, and the home theater almost becomes the new den or rec room in today’s homes.

Desert Landscaping:  Now, this trend is happening more so in Las Vegas as more aReal estate agent in Nevada who is gaynd more residents are trying to save money on their electric bills and become more environmentally conscious.  So many people think of rocks and a bush when talking about desert landscaping, but the possibilities for beautiful blooming flowers and trees are amazing. The water requirements are MUCH less making your water bill a little easier to swallow.  Las Vegas does have some of the cheapest water in the nation, but that’s no reason to waste it!  Desert landscaping has come a long way for those owners with discerning tastes. I have worked with a few landscapers who I trust and who design great yards for my clients. If you need a recommendation for a trades person let me know.

I am constantly working with trades people and my clients all the time. I have a good group of contractors who I trust.  If you need a painter, roofer, landscaper, tiler, chimney sweeper, please give me a call and I’d be happy to connect you to the right service provider.

Boca Park Las Vegas

Boca Park is a great shopping area in Las Vegas. I love living so close to it because it has everything I could need. Just to give you a few of the stores in the shopping park:

Fabulous Gay Food at PF CHANG’

Las Vegas Gay Real EstateGay Realtor Las Vegas

This area is where a lot of fun, active people go to shop and socialize. There are a few great restaurants in this area, one of them is Kona Grill. They have a Asian Fusion Menu, with Sushi, Pizza, great appetizers, and a great happy hour. They also have a reverse happy hour from 10-Midnight for those late night cravings you might have.

Just north of the Great Indoors is a project I am so excited about. It’s called the Village at Queensridge. How appropriate huh? 🙂 This is from the developer of QueensridgeOne Queens Ridge Place which are the first high rise towers in the Suburbs of Las Vegas. Properties here are absolutely stunning, and so are the price tags. You won’t be able to get into one of these condo’s for less than $1.4 Million. In order to appeal to these high end residents, the developer is building more high end retail, supposedly a Ferrari Dealership, and my favorite a FARMER’S MARKET!!! We don’t really have a farmer’s market in Las Vegas, so this will be a great addition to our city.

This area is full of excitement and energy and there are plenty of homes near this area. It offers great access to the Summerlin Pkwy, I-95, and the 215 beltway. If you’d interested in seeing homes in this area, please email me at
