Growing up, I spent many summer vacations and winter weekend with my parents and siblings in Tahoe, always yearning to come back for more time in these mountains and crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. I was lucky enough to spend my full first winter in Tahoe in 1993, moving here full time in 1995 after graduating CU Boulder, and have called North Lake Tahoe and Truckee home ever since. After 5 years in the hospitality industry, I moved into Property Management, managing multiple Homeowner Associations – ranging from small condo complexes to large luxury home communities. Learning the benefits and hindrances of various types of properties, Property Management proved to be an excellent jumping point for me to transition into Real Estate full time in 2005. I use my foundation in property management and customer service to provide clients with an experience driven by a strong work ethic, attention to detail, personal service and results.
Having lived in various locations on the North and West Shores of Lake Tahoe, my husband Jeff and our two daughters now reside in the Ponderosa Palisades area in Truckee. We are a typical Tahoe family, spending winters skiing at Alpine Meadows or in the back country, summers on the lake and hiking or backpacking in the mountains. Long weekends are spent camping at local music festivals with other families whenever we can. The days in between are filled with volunteer work for Kindred Truckee and painting the Theatre sets for Great Future Productions out of the Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe to support the local art scene.
My Real Estate Business is much more than just buying and selling homes. Many of my clients are second home owners who can’t be here as much as they would like to. I act as their eyes and ears, a trusted local resource, someone who they can count on for help and advice.
I would love to help you find your own piece of Tahoe to call home, build lasting family memories or simply to get away, unplug and connect with the great outdoors.
As a first time home buyer, the process of buying a home can be pretty overwhelming. Steph took the time to clearly explain every stage of the purchase, giving me the knowledge I needed to get to the finish line.
