“Justin is the consummate professional and an all-around great human. We weren’t sure what we were looking for - small vintage cabin in the woods, in a development/near skiing, north or south shore, now or later. Justin identified homes for us and also went and viewed them in person for us as we were out of the area. He did detailed walkthroughs and researched the properties in detail, including calling in specialists to help us asses different situations in a very crazy market. He was honest with his assessments and I trusted his judgment completely. Once we were in contract on a great house, Justin went out of his way to set up inspections, engineers, general contractors, etc to help us make good decisions for the purchase and beyond. We knew he always had our best interest at heart and I can genuinely say through the experience he has become a friend. Justin has my highest recommendation and if we are ever contemplating being in the North Lake Tahoe market again, We won’t hesitate to call Justin.”

“Top notch support for our remote buying experience Justin helped our family find the perfect mountain getaway house in Northstar, remotely from the bay area. He was extremely knowledgeable about the many locations in and around Lake Tahoe. He helped us manage all the information with a Google shared folder as well as sent videos and arranged multiple appointments where he was at the property to represent us. That made it very simple to make decisions and plans as a team. He is incredibly responsive and fun to work with. I highly recommend Justin for your home hunting.”

Joe and BeckyNorthstar

“From the start of our first initial call with to signing the closing papers Justin was fantastic. He quickly responded to all our questions about the various neighborhoods/areas, provided local insights based on what we wanted, and in the end found us our perfect home. He communicated every step of the way during the transaction process. He even surprised us by installing the lock we wanted without us even knowing to make it perfect when we moved in. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone looking for a home in the Truckee/Lake Tahoe region.”

“Justin is incredibly personable and responsive. He's knowledgeable about the local market and community. He helped us list our home and sell it immediately, and purchase another home in Truckee. The process was incredibly complicated and he was a wonderful thought partner.”

There are a ton of agents out there and I’m glad I selected Justin! It took me 2 years to find the right property at the right price in Tahoe with him and he was there for every question and bit of intel I needed to score a great home. He’s incredibly knowledgable about local trends, politics, investment factors, and local resources to help you size up the best property in a competitive environment. He even helped me with a lot of little post-purchase move in logistics and issues. Super nice guy too. I hope I get the chance to work with him again.

Justin was one of the best realtors of the many I've ever worked with. Buying property 200 miles from home accentuates the need for a skilled broker with excellent communication skills and follow through. Justin made a potentially difficult process easy. He deftly guided us through the offer/counter offer process with supporting data and objective advice. He worked with our busy schedule and was always available to chase down issues and answer questions. His follow up on the myriad of little details involved to close made the process seamless and closed one week ahead of original schedule. Thanks Justin!

William and Christine – Purchased Catamount Lodge Village at Northstar

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!
