Karen Mason

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. “
-Henry David Thoreau
After establishing a successful 26-year career in high-end real estate sales and mortgage lending in Marin County, Karen has realized her lifelong dream of relocating to the Lake Tahoe area.

Living an adventure-filled life in the outdoors has always been key to her happiness and serenity. By spending her childhood hiking, camping, snow, and water skiing, and enjoying long days at Lake Tahoe her relationship with the Sierras has become a full-on love affair.
As an excellent communicator and relationship builder, she has always gained high praise in advocating for her clients. Of course, the greatest compliment she can receive is a referral from gratified customers. Happy customer referrals continue to drive Karen’s success.
When she is not too busy working for buyers and sellers you can find Karen and her rescue dog Kona at Schaffer’s Mill golfing, hiking, and practicing yoga during the summer. During the colder months, Karen is sure to be found skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating at Northstar. Karen’s son, Michael Mason has a degree in Journalism and Marketing from the University of Oregon. Michael oversees the marketing and promotional services surrounding Karen’s Tahoe Mountain Realty activities.
Karen is a University of California at Berkeley graduate and holds a National Mortgage License.

Karen Mason is everything you would want in a realtor. She is professional, thorough, efficient, timely and added a personal touch with us the seller and the potential buyers.

We had the pleasure of working with Karen as both a seller and buyer and in both instances she was absolutely top notch in successfully helping our family navigate the Tahoe area market. Karen was always incredibly responsive, thoughtful, friendly and knowledgeable which helped us achieve an incredible outcome each time we worked together.

Karen was a pleasure to work with. She assisted our family in finding a home during a strong seller’s market. Not only did she find the perfect home for us, but she fought for us during what ended up being a difficult transaction. She was truly on our side and we so appreciated her expertise.

When my husband and I decided to buy in the Tahoe Area we were unfamiliar with exactly which part we wanted to settle in. Karen Mason gave us so much information and wisdom about all the important things to consider when making a final decision about location. We were overwhelmed by her kind and proactive approach. She shared so much information with us before we started actually looking to get more familiar with everything we needed to know to make a sound decision. When we started actually looking, Karen spent so much time driving us around and being so informative and patient every step of the way. We felt like she was truly a partner with us, helping make our dream come true. Her enthusiasm and passion shined through keeping us feeling calm and secure with our trusted realtor. We knew from day one we were in good hands. We finally picked our dream home and Karen helped us make it a reality and we are eternally grateful to her for all she did for us to make this possible. She truly went above and beyond the call of duty. I'd highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

2021 Year-End Market Review

January 5, 2022
2021 was a most remarkable year for Tahoe Truckee real estate as the surge of consumers seeking an enhanced lifestyle continued for a second year. Demand overwhelmed supply in a manner that delivered multiple bids in a predictable fashion to well-informed sellers.

In recent years I’ve tried to focus more on pursuing the same outcome (achieving big goals), but through a process that involves more appreciation of the steps along the way.

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.
