Nashville, TN (June 1, 1999) -- 100 Oaks Mall, the first shopping mall ever built in Tennessee, is proud to host The Nashville Association of Real Estate Professionals Third Annual "Homebuyer Expo". The exhibitors will be present Saturday, June 5th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the second level.

The public is invited to stop by any of the thirty or more booths to get tips from lenders, real estate companies, insurance agents and non-profit organizations about how to buy, finance, improve and renovate homes.

"Sponsors such as The Department of Housing and Urban Development, First American Bank and The Realty Association, make this expo an excellent source of free information for homebuyers," says Andrew J. Groveman, Senior Vice President of Belz Enterprises.
