"Fancy represented us for the sale of our home as well as the purchase of our dream home…there was a lot at stake for us and she helped ease the stress for us during this time by being extremely responsive and checking in with us during the waiting days of “no news” and we closed on time in both the sale and purchase!! I would highly recommend Fancy for your next purchase or sale!!”

Fancy guided us through the purchase of a home in Old Greenwood golf community, Truckee CA. She was extremely detailed with all communications regarding the process and was available at all times to answer questions. In addition she has remained available to a our questions on the community.

Fancy is hands down one of the best real estate agents we have ever worked with (and we have worked with a few). Our experience with her was excellent, she was unbelievably generous with her time, super patient with all our queries and requests, and always attended to our every question and need no matter what time of the day or how big/small of an issue it was. She helped us find our dream home in Tahoe and we developed a wonderful friendship in the process. She was kind and funny and made the whole experience really enjoyable for our whole family (including our little girls who love her!). We would highly highly highly recommend Fancy to anyone looking to buy their next home!

Meghan S.

Fancy is top of the line! She is extremely knowledgeable about the local area, and is able to distill what the client wants and give an expert opinion on options and various properties. She is very responsive and truly feels like a partner during the whole process. She definitely goes the extra mile and I would highly recommend working with her. A true gem!!

Fancy's organized, detail oriented, and attentive approach to listing our house helped in having a stress-free sale of our home. She not only helped us to get more than our asking price, but helped to negotiate a lease-back so that we could close and move to our new house on our own schedule. I would highly recommend Fancy.

Bob L.

Fancy was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the process of finding and purchasing our first home! She made my wife and I feel very comfortable and always answered our questions promptly. We never once felt pressured or uncomfortable with her as our agent, and because of that, Fancy helped us remain patient until we found the perfect home for us! We can't recommend her enough!

My experience with Fancy Rutherford acting as my real estate agent. I recently completed the purchase of a residential property in Truckee CA and I was represented by Fancy Rutherford who I believe would be an excellent choice for anyone desiring to purchase or sell residential property in the Tahoe-Truckee area. This review is to describe why I can highly recommend her, but first I must disclose, proudly, that she is my daughter. Because of our family relationship she had insight into what I wanted in a new residence and what was my price range. Over the course of a year she provided me with information on general market conditions, reviewed and communicated on specific listings for a possible fit, and arranged for remote and physical viewing of properties. During the process of purchasing my new home she demonstrated her professional demeanor and skills in several ways. She was acutely aware of my wants and needs in the selection process. After several on-site inspections I had questions on the house features and she demonstrated an uncanny ability to recollect those details. This same ability proved helpful in reviewing the seller’s disclosure statement, and during the negotiating process she demonstrated both an understanding empathy together with an understated tenacity in bringing the buyer and seller together. Fancy is an empathetic, full-time, technically savvy real estate agent that communicates well and often, is a quick study in determining client needs, and is knowledgeable on local market conditions. One would be well served to select her as a real estate agent.

We loved working with Fancy, and so glad we did. She is definitely a trusted expert in reading the market, negotiation, and strategy. She is dependable, reliable, and trustworthy. She made selling our home as seamless of an experience as possible. We highly recommend her.

Fancy did a great job finding us the vacation home we were looking for. For over 2 years, she showed us properties as they came up on the market. As remote buyers looking for a very specific type of home and price point, it couldn't have been easy to prioritize us amongst her clients. But Fancy overdelivered and always made us feel like the most important customers. She worked hard, negotiated well, and delivered us our home. We couldn't be happier with the experience. We truly believe her local extensive local knowledge of the Truckee/Tahoe real estate market helped close our house. We highly recommend Fancy for your real estate needs.

In late 2023 we began our search for a multi-use property in North Tahoe, we envisioned a modern build to serve as our company's HQ. We were seeking a truly unique space to host clients and partners, have kick-off meetings, team building events, and serve as a wellness retreat for our executives. At times this plan seemed like a pipe dream, until we happened upon Fancy Rutherford and Justin Swett, from Tahoe Mountain Realty. From the moment we met they were so delightful, helpful, encouraging, understanding, and ultra-knowledgeable about the local North Tahoe market. We visited several properties together until we found the perfect place, however it was still under construction. Unbelievably we were able to secure the property before the build was completed, and without any competition or multiple offers to contend with. Now our new HQ is complete, and yes it exceeds our wildest expectations, just as Fancy/Justin did throughout the entire process!

Rothman M.

Fancy and team were very diligent, proactive, and tenacious in helping us on our real estate transaction. As this was a seasonal home property, we relied extensively on Fancy's experience and local market knowledge in helping us get in contract and meet all the various closing conditions. We are thrilled with the purchase and very much appreciate the team's dedication to helping us get the deal done.

Davis L.

Fancy helped our family find the perfect vacation home. She listened to our needs, showed us exactly what we were looking for. She always responded to our questions quickly. Fancy kept us informed on the whole process of determining a price, escrow, and utilities. She is very familiar with the Truckee area and was very helpful in suggesting places to hike, golf and snowshoe, even went as far as finding us the perfect dining room table. I would highly recommend Fancy for your Real Estate needs. She will not disappoint.
