Hi everyone! Welcome to my about us page, My name is Elizabeth Healey-Hammack and I have been a resident of Las Vegas Nevada since 1987. Wow…is that 32+ years? Well, I don’t look or feel that old...wow!
Anyway, here are some more insignificant details about the author ... I grew up in Twentynine Palms, California. This is a town you only go to if the 15 or 215 is shut down on your way to Southern California, or if you are a Marine and have no choice ..
A lot of people are aware of it, as it hosts the 29 Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center. I could not wait to get out of there when I was in High School and somehow talked my mom into letting me move to Las Vegas when I was 16 to enter into a program at UNLV for getting college credits while you were still in high school. I had family here in Vegas, so she let me go. The rest is history so they say.
After graduating from Eldorado High School up on Sunrise Mountain with honors, I just worked and partied too much because back then a dolled up girl could get into a club or a bar in Vegas with ease….but to any minors reading this, you can forget that now, there is always a big guy right at the door, those days are long gone.
I don’t condone underage partying, but I can say that when I ended up pregnant at 21, I pretty much had the partying all out of my system and was ready to be a good mom. (As of writing this, she is now 27 and just got married in 2019 and we are enjoying our new son in law and spending a lot more adult time hanging out at local breweries which is my daughters passion - yep beer!)
I got my Nevada real estate license when I was expecting my daughter and was dreaming of making a better life for her (although I didn't know it was a "her" as I had a "surprise") and eventually that happened after several barback, bartending and cocktail jobs, I finally became part of a very successful real estate team and started my 28 year real estate career.
I still like to assist homeowners although I don't really advertise for a full blow real estate career, I am more interested in design and renovation now and can buy houses for cash from people that need to get rid of them, fix them up and improve the neighborhood at my current company WeBuyHousesLVNV.com. If you do need an honest real estate agent however, reach out I will still most likely be able to help.
After 11 years of being a single mom, I met a handsome Las Vegas City Firefighter Paramedic via a real estate mailer I sent out in his neighborhood. After selling his home, we went to a 4 hour dinner at PF Changs with my daughter, and within 14 months we were standing on the verandah overlooking the ocean at the Surf and Sand in Laguna Beach California saying our vows.
I am really focusing on my Live in Las Vegas NV website because it is a great resource for people that live here as well as want to move here. This is a different type of website that is unlike most local sites you would find. It is non adult and non gaming and simply talks about what to do here, events, golf, weddings, things to do for kids, real estate and so much more.
In December of 2006 right after my daughters 14th birthday, we gave birth to a beautiful baby boy at the amazing St Rose Siena hospital in Henderson, Nevada (another beautiful community surrounding Las Vegas).
As I am writing this, my son is 13 and I go to bed every other night with a prayer that my husband comes home in the morning safely. I also continue to pray for the hope and future of the families that have suffered the loss of their children at any time and place in this world.
I have to tell you that aside from the typical stresses that come along with having a now 27 year old and a “high energy 13 year old” and a husband that risks his life and loves it, we have a pretty amazing life!
The Las Vegas economy always has a way of recovering quickly and providing an abundance of jobs and opportunity. There are so many events always going on as well as a park on practically every corner.
You can go to the grocery story at midnight or 3 am for that matter, and you can get food anytime as well. We are very spoiled here with the convenience and the quality of our service that is unmatched anywhere else!
Weirdly I have become mostly vegan in my at home cooking, however I have two meat eaters at home, so I occasionally cook meat for them (I don't eat it) and I also will have some dairy when I eat out around town. I find it very difficult still to make everyone happy in the house when I insist on vegan food. If you have an interest in purchasing the domain LasVegasVegan.com contact me and lets talk about it :))
So thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and “the other side of sin city” ... learn more about us on our blog page or real estate pages. And I hope to see you sharing in this amazing community atmosphere with your friends and family!
Don't forget that we are really a small town surrounded by mountains and actually contain a few different city's all mushed together. You can check out our surrounding areas and cities here. Such as Henderson, North Las Vegas and Boulder City. We barely started to see pollution here, but it get's so windy that it seems to clear the air to perfectly clear pretty often. Now we have the Raider's coming and a super awesome award winning minor league baseball team the Aviator's. There is always so much to do, drink and eat. It never runs out and when it does you can just go to another part of town, or they will build something new and great!
Have a Wonderful Day and thank you for visiting our about us page!
