Andrew’s Lockbox Location Misadventure!

Like you, I thought to myself, “How hard could it be to find the location of the NNRMLS Lockbox Exchange, it’s near the Nugget, right? If I can’t find it, I’ll just put it into my phone’s Google Map app!”

Not so fast! Yes, it is NEAR John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino Resort, but not AT the Nugget as some agents have serenely posited.

What you should know: The location is EAST of McCarran Avenue, but not at the tank farm! Are you scratching your head thinking, “Why the tank farm?” Read on Lockbox Exchanger, and learn how to NOT get lost:

This is not 325 E. Nugget Ave! If you find yourself here, continue east, away from the Nugget Casino, and cross McCarran, then turn right! Don't worry, you'll get there. -Photo courtesy Google Maps.

This is not 325 E. Nugget Ave! If you find yourself here, continue east, away from the Nugget Casino, and cross S. McCarran, then turn right into the driveway! Don’t worry, you’ll get there. -Photo courtesy Google Maps.

I found out the hard way last week that Google Maps can be misleading. I was due at an early-morning NNRMLS company meeting at the Lockbox Exchange location, 325 E. Nugget Avenue, and before I started the car I pasted the address into my phone’s Google Map app.

A word of advice? Pick the one that says “325 East Nugget Avenue.”

Pick the one that says "325 East Nugget Avenue," if you don't you'll likely wind up in "silo-land", like me!

The map pin shows where you’ll wind up if you pick 325 Nugget Avenue instead of 325 East Nugget Avenue in Google Maps. The NNRMLS 2013 Lockbox Exchange is located at the grey-roofed building pictured above to the lower right. -Image courtesy Google Maps.

 

Otherwise, you’ll likely wind up in “silo-land”, (noted by picture above), instead of at the grey-roofed building across McCarran! Needless to say, even though I was close to my destination I felt lost and I wound up texting my boss to help me navigate out of “tank place” and “silo lane”!

Here’s the front of the building where the NNRMLS is holding its 2013 Mission: Lockbox Exchange. It’s on 325 East Nugget Ave and is just east of S. McCarran. It’s on the dead-end portion of Nugget Avenue that’s challenging to find on Google Maps! You can download a copy of our custom map here: http://members.nnrmls.com/LockboxExchange2013.html
