Buyer Testimonials

Customer service is our top priority and we work extra hard so that you can relax and have peace of mind from start to finish throughout the entire sales process.  Whether we am representing you as a buyer or a seller you can rest assured that every detail will be attended to and that your experience will be pleasant.  Buying or selling property in Incline Village is a more complicated process than almost anywhere else due to our overlapping jurisdictions, special rules and regulations that govern the Lake Tahoe Basin and purchase documents that are unique to our community.  Here are some testimonials from just a few of the satisfied buyers and sellers that we  have worked with over the years.

My wife and I started looking 3 years ago for a place in the Incline Village / Crystal Bay area. We met Don and were very impressed by his JEDI Level local knowledge of the real estate market, but more importantly, his knowledge of the local trails and ski resorts. For us, we were looking for a lifestyle just as much as a good deal on a home away from home…At any rate, Don and Sabrina know their stuff!
Fun Fact: Don talked us out of about 3 different properties over 3 years (Yes, he’s a patient man) that were twice as much as the home he eventually sold us.
Why: He felt those homes were simply not good fits for us… How many agents level with you like that? Most agents just want to get the deal done and make their $ and move on. Total integrity. Cool beans, right?
I would highly recommend Don & Sabrina at RE/MAX North Tahoe.
We love our new home by the creek! -Newbie Tahoe Locs

Sabrina and Don made the daunting purchase of my first home effortless and delightful. I have been consistently thrilled with the level of professional advice and timely service that they have provided before and after the closing. I highly recommend Re/Max North Lake to anyone looking for real estate or real estate advice.

Last year, Don and Sabrina provided professional and personalized services helping us identify and then buy a condominium in Incline Village that fits our needs and lifestyle perfectly. Don looked after our best interests during the purchase while Sabrina effectively coordinated the transfer of numerous electronic documents, allowing us to close in short order and with confidence.After the sale, both Don and Sabrina helped us get settled in to our new home, providing an abundance of practical and useful information regarding the transition to Incline Village. In addition, Sabrina assisted us in completing some final work items on our unit before we moved in. We are very satisfied with the services provided by Don and Sabrina and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy property in the Incline Village area.- –

As a frequent visitor from the Bay Area, my wife and I decided that 2011 was time to buy a vacation home in Incline Village. We selected Don Kanare to help us with the purchase, and that was absolutely the right decision. Being impressed with the information on Don’s website, I contacted Don, who immediately provided a list of potential properties, and took his time to show us several properties on our weekend visits to Incline.
We selected a property and the negotiations and purchase were completed in a very short period of time. Don is an extremely knowledgeable real estate professional, very patient, dedicated, available and responsive, detailed oriented, and just downright helpful. Don provided great advice, but never pressured us or rushed us throughout the buying process.
Anyone interested in real estate in Incline Village needs to contact Don.

Recently, my husband and I worked with Don Kanare to purchase a property in Incline Village. It was a wonderful experience for the following reasons:

* Don listens: He figured what mattered to us after showing us just one house!

* Don is organized: He drew up a timeline of events which he sent to the buyers and sellers with responsibilities of each party clearly outlined with deadlines. We were never left wondering what would happen next.

* Don communicates: He emails, texts and calls appropriately and responds quickly. We always understood what he was saying to us.

We enthusiastically recommend Don Kanare to both buyers and sellers. Don gets things done. He works tirelessly to satisfy his client. We plan on using him again.

Thank you, Don, for our new home!

We can’t thank you enough for the outstanding job you did in helping us find the perfect home in Incline Village.  Wow, what a process … living 1,900 miles away, looking at 14 beautiful properties in one day, and enduring many delays in closing a very complex transaction.   During the entire experience you had the professionalism, patience, creativity, community connections, and determination to hold the deal together.  We chose you entirely based on the wealth of information provided on your blog.  We wholeheartedly recommend you because of the excellence of your comprehensive customer service.  Thanks again for exceeding all of our expectations.

We’re now settled into our new home and want to thank you for your tireless work on our behalf.  When we decided to purchase in Incline we interviewed several agents and chose you because of your honesty and straight talk about asking prices vs values.  We were not disappointed.  We’ve appreciated your evaluation of homes on our behalf and the time you’ve spent showing us properties over the past 9 months without pressuring us into an overpriced purchase or pushing a property that was not right for our needs.

We truly feel like we found an agent who represented our interests 100% of the time and thank you for your willingness to make those numerous offers for us in an effort to ferret out what we all felt was a good deal on the right property.

Jim and Kathy S.

Thanks a lot, Don!  We are both very excited.  Thank you so much for being so diligent and meticulous in every aspect of the house-buying process.  Your knowledge and advice on every related subject matter were invaluable to us, and we are very grateful.

Of course we would like to keep in touch and it was also a pleasure working with you. Nancy agreed with me that we could not have found a better Realtor for our needs. We could not have made a better and I am pleased that you were able to coordinate a third viewing…
