Saving the Dream? NACA throws down big in Vegas


I spent the whole weekend covering the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America’s event at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Here are the photos to prove it. Why are people coming in large numbers from Los Angeles to be a part of NACA’s loan modification event? Listen to the story here:

It was, in some ways, an epic, biblical scene. Lines stretching from the Convention Center to the Renaissance Hotel. People sleeping on the ground. Citizens making a last-ditch effort to save their homes. There was so much in the way of good, neighborly vibrations among strangers, that it would have been a purely positive scene, if it were not for the desperation at hand. But perhaps those things–desperation and human decency–work hand in hand.

If you attended this event, we want to hear from you. If you purposely stayed away, we want to hear from you.

      Yes, the event got alot of positive public publicity and attention. There are still thousands more that did not get the memo that it was happening… Hope they come back again and get the word out to the Realtors also we have clients who need to negotiate …..
