CARROLLTON, Texas, Oct. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attendees of the 2011 Realtors Conference and Expo can take advantage of innovative REO training offered by Vendor Resource Management through its VRM University on November 14-15 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County. The Realtors Conference and Expo attracts real estate professionals from across the U.S. and around the world. This year's event is expected to draw 18,000 members and guests.
