When you are thinking of buying or selling property at Lake Tahoe there are many choices to consider. What community is best for me? Will I live here full time or have a vacation home? How much time and money do I want to spend taking care of a place? Do I need to earn rental income?

With so many options to consider, having a full time local real estate agent to provide you with the information you need is essential to the decision making process. Whether you are looking for a condo or a house, lake view or woodsy setting, close to the beach and shopping or a private retreat far from the maddening crowds, I can help you find just the right property.

Technology,  Real Estate and E-Pro Certification

Having been a business consultant for over 16 years, and one of only a small group of realtors out of 350 in Incline Village with the NAR designation of E-Pro, I have kept abreast of the latest computer and other important technological advances. Using the right technology for the proper purpose helps me to work more efficiently and to provide you with current information on our local real estate market, whether I am home in Incline Village or traveling anywhere in the world.

As a certified E-Pro, I have taken a comprehensive course and passed a lengthy series of exams demonstrating my proficiency with the Internet, computers and a variety of electronic technology.  Less than 1% of all the Realtors in the U.S. have achieved the E-Pro Certification and I am proud to be part of this elite group of tech savvy agents.

For buyers, I set up a specialized search on the MLS specifically for your own personal criteria. You will receive e-mails of only the new listings that fit your desires and have been screened by me first. This saves time and focuses your energy on only those properties that would be of interest to you.

Whether you are buying or selling property, my technical skills make everything easier.

Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)

Incline Village and Crystal Bay are very unique communities within Lake Tahoe. Except for the condo developments, there is no easy way to compare home prices. We do not have tract homes here. Each home is different and the value of each property varies dramatically depending on the lot size, view, location, exposure to sunlight, slope, ease of access and many other factors.

The standard CMA that is generated from the MLS only provides a cursory view and does not really give you the specific details needed to accurately gauge the price of any particular property. I take the process many steps further and do a comprehensive market analysis that takes several hours to perform.

This extra detailed analysis helps buyers and sellers to determine the fair market price for a particular property and helps to shorten the negotiation stage of the transaction. It helps to reduce conflict and brings both parties closer together when everyone realizes that the fair market price is being determined from a comprehensive & unbiased analysis.

Maximizing Your Real Estate Investment

Having worked in property management in Incline Village prior to going into real estate sales full time, I have the local knowledge to help you maximize your investment. I can provide you with an Excel spreadsheet that will help you analyze the rate of return for any type of property. Helping you estimate the annual income & expenses for a specific property can ease your worries and take the guesswork out of the decision making.

I like to help my clients analyze the value of a property now, and what it might be worth in the future. Being able to give suggestions on how to increase the value of a potential investment and best position it for future sale is one of the ways that I help you plan for the long term. And if a property has weaknesses that may not be evident, I make it a point to discover and disclose key issues to help you decide the best course of action

Exceptional Personal Service

Personal service is a hallmark of my business philosophy. I am available 7 days a week, unless I am away on vacation. In my absence, I have a designated professional real estate agent handle my transactions. I believe that the best way to provide top notch service to my clients is to make sure that I am accessible via e-mail and cell phone whenever you need my help.

I personally ensure that the details of each transaction are handled in a completely professional manner from start to finish. So, for a stress-free and pleasant experience with buying or selling property, please give me a call or send me an e-mail.
