How Las Vegas Celebrates National Chocolate Day

"National Chocolate Day is celebrated annually on October 28.  While there are many chocolate related holidays throughout the year, National Chocolate Day is a day to celebrate all things chocolate." A few of my favorite "Chocolate Destinations" here in Las Vegas are Ethel M's Flagship Store & Factory that has a super cool cactus garden (especially during the Holiday Season with an amazing lights display), Hershey's Chocolate World- 2 stories of yum! and M&M World where you can get everything M&M's and even custom print your own, in store! Enjoy National Chocolate Day and check out some of these Las Vegas Tourist Attractions.

Visit one of our Ethel M® Chocolate stores and choose from our collection of premium chocolates, create a personalized gift for a friend or loved one, or take a self guided tour of our cactus garden and chocolate factory to see how we have been making chocolate for over 100 years.

Real Estate Horror Stories- I Chose My Own Lender Against my Realtor's Advice.

Real Estate Horror Stories- I Chose My Own Lender Against my Realtor's Advice.

Dave Radcliffe, Realtor with Keller Williams Realty Southwest Las Vegas, interviews client Roz, about her recent real estate transaction where she decided to choose her own lender. "It was a night mare!" Buying a home can be stressful, choosing your own lender and not having it work out can be terrifying. She chose a family friend. The lender she chose could not close the deal and she was faced with not having a place to live and the possibilities of loosing $65,000.00!
Roz finally decided to take the advice of The Radcliffe Group and Dave's team matched her with a different lender that was able to close the deal.

The lesson learned: Follow your Realtor's advice if you are choosing a vendor. Don't go with a family friend.
