Even execs get stung by the real estate market

In some ways the sale of Houston-based retail electric retailer Reliant Energy to NRG Energy earlier this year is an example of the power company taking advantage of a bad situation (Reliant’s credit issues) to get a good bargain.
Unfortunately for Reliant’s president, Jason Few, someone else is getting a good bargain at his expense.
According to a real estate news site it appear Few had to sell his Chicago-area home at a loss. Few was a VP with Motorola in the Chicago area before being lured down here.
