Greetings –

I find myself often saying, “this is my favorite time of the year”, or “my favorite activity to do in Tahoe”. This past Tuesday was another one with my sons 4th Birthday and the annual expedition to the woods to find the perfect Christmas Tree. There are many areas close to home in Truckee to find a tree, but of course I wanted to make an adventure out of it and we found ourselves in the Plumas National Forest around 1 hour north of Truckee near Lake Davis. With a $10 permit we ventured into the wilderness and had a day of family fun and memories.

Not only is this a fun activity for the family, but you are actually contributing to a reduction of over-growth and fuels which is a big help to the forest service to maintain a healthy wilderness. Here is a link to a blog on cutting your own Christmas Tree: Christmas Tree Cutting Permits

Real Estate:
I am pleased to share with you a significant event within our real estate practice; one that will substantially enhance my ability to provide you with the best service. Tahoe Mountain Realty (TMR) has been purchased by our longtime leader; Jeff Brown.

Over the last 10 years Jeff has served as General Manager and established the vision of TMR as a unique brand of real estate brokerage; one that focuses on placing extraordinary professionals with exceptional insights in front of qualified consumers.

Now under Jeff’s sole leadership there will be enhanced investment into all facets of the business while maintaining all the elements that have made us #1 in the region for luxury resort sales.

Moving forward we will continue to operate from the same high profile sales venues including The Icon Building in the Village at Northstar, arguably the best real estate venue in the region, as well as Old Greenwood and Gray’s Crossing. Our focus will continue to be on the luxury resort communities of Northstar, Martis Camp, Lahontan, Schaffer’s Mill, Old Greenwood and Gray’s Crossing. Our website,, will remain the singular resource for micro-data on real estate and macro-detail for the region.

Most importantly, I will continue to be your resource for whatever information is valuable to you as an enthusiast of Lake Tahoe. Please check in to our showroom the next time you find yourself in the area.

This has been very exciting news for me to announce as Jeff has been a big mentor in my real estate career and a great friend that I have shared the trails and skin track with over many years. I am very excited for him and the future of TMR.


I had a chance to preview Stellar Residence #3 the other day as it was just furnished and it looks incredible. The collection should come to market in the next few weeks and I will be sure to update you with pricing and photos. Below is a description of the collection as well as a photo of the great room/kitchen in Residence #3.

The Stellar Collection is comprised of two distinct offerings: Stellar Townhomes and Stellar Residences. Each provides the immediate ski and hiking access that Mountainside Northstar is known for — enabling a deeper connection with the Mountain and Resort. Comprised of single-family residences and townhomes for the Northstar of the 21st century and designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson to be as cozily luxurious as they are thoughtfully progressive, Stellar homes offer smart, open plans and floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors into your slopeside living room.


In the meantime, best wishes to you and your family for a happy and healthy holiday season.
