Kolleen Kelley, president of the Las Vegas-area Realtors Association, said her colleagues are bracing for slow progress, regardless of the election outcome. "I don't know that they're blaming any one person or one party," she said. "This is not a simple fix - it's going to take a longer period of time to get us out from under."
