One good way in enjoying the winter season is by making sure that you are informed right ahead about the ski resorts in Tahoe that are currently in operation. Much better if you have advance information of the discounts and rates that they are offering. Here's the "Lake Tahoe Ski Resort Guide for 2017," a simple token of appreciation made by yours truly as a way of saying "May you have a wonderful Christmas this year, 2017" You can click on this link to share it for everyone on Facebook.

Are there condos in Martis Camp?Martis Camp is considered one of the most exclusive and expensive subdivisions in the greater Truckee and North Lake Tahoe area.Home prices in the luxury gated Martis Camp development rival that of the North Lake Tahoe trophy lakefront home properties in our area.Not everyone wants the responsibility that comes with single family ownership, or they want a more concierge style of living that often comes with condo/townhouse property ownership. So I am often asked “Are there condos in Martis Camp?” and the answer is "no". There are no condominiums, or townhouses in the Martis Camp subdivision.  The only property option for Tahoe Buyers is a single family home in the exclusive Martis Camp area.If you are a luxury condominium/townhouse buyer in the greater Tr...

Can I fence in my Tahoe Donner Home?Can I fence in my Tahoe Donner home?  This is a common question I get from my dog owners, or buyers with small children that are looking to buy a second home in the Tahoe Donner community.When looking at property in the Tahoe Donner area you will notice that you do not see properties that are fenced in.When you do find a property that has a fenced in area, it will be very small area and it will have built to meet the Architectural Standards within the development. Fences are allowed, however, there are very strict rules and you must follow the application and approval process. It is not a given that your request to build a fence will be approved. Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If you want to build a fence on your Tahoe Donner pr...
