Asa Fountain

From the East Coast to the West, to the East, and back again, Asa has followed the call of the mountains.

A native to Vermont and New Hampshire, Asa’s greatest joys growing up came from the peaks, the forests, and the snowfall. These passions followed him to college at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire where Asa studied English and became a snowboard coach at Waterville Valley Resort.

After becoming a fully certified instructor with the American Association of Snowboard Instructors, Asa loaded up his truck with his best friend and sped across the country, landing in Truckee, California to continue his life in the mountains. Since then, Asa has trained and certified dozens of instructors as an examiner for the AASI, directed competitive snowboard teams, and trained riders in China and Japan.

Most recently, Asa has dove into a new career in real estate with Tahoe Mountain Realty, and while this may be a far cry from a life spent snowboarding, they have more in common than one might think; a good coach in snowsports is marked by their ability to make great connections with their students, and when that connection is made, coach and student can achieve incredible things together.

Beyond providing the best service possible, Asa’s true goal is to make that same connection with his clients so they can love and appreciate Lake Tahoe for the same reasons he does. With any luck, he can make that connection with you and invite your family into our fantastic community in Truckee and Lake Tahoe.

Asa has assisted us with the sale of our home, the purchase of a lot and the selling of that same lot. All transactions were smooth, communicative and prompt. Asa goes above and beyond for his clients. When our buyers had a question about ceiling tiles and asbestos in the sale of our home Asa took the time to have the ceiling tiles tested to put the buyers worries at ease. We highly recommend using Asa as your listing or buying agent as he has represented us on all ends of our transactions.

We used Asa to help us find our home in the Truckee area last summer. It was a tough job due to the pandemic and a mass increase of people moving into this area. Asa was very patient with us and showed us around many properties all within short notice. He was very knowledgeable of the locale and always positive, friendly, and helpful. We never felt under any pressure and he was respectful when contacting us about new properties that might be of interest to us. We were 1st time buyers in the USA so needed a lot of guidance through the buying process and we felt that Asa guided us through the negotiations and paperwork really well. I would thoroughly recommend Asa to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Truckee area.

December 2021 Tahoe-Truckee Market Update

December 2, 2021
Elements of saturation are becoming evident as the Tahoe-Truckee real estate market tapers into an early winter. Price fatigue has undoubtedly set in as sellers have continued pricing along a meteoric curve while buyers, still quite active by any ordinary standard, have begun to apply some measure of discipline in making purchasing decisions.
