I have known Liza for over seven years. She is without doubt the best Realtor, my wife and I have worked with, over the last thirty-five years. Liza puts the client first, second and third. We have done a number of transactions together, and each one was successful. Having recommended Liza to a number of friends, they’ve all experienced the same partnership, and success. I’m happy to take a reference call.

We were of course completely satisfied with Liza’s efforts in both our buying and selling processes. Liza has a wealth of knowledge of the market, comps, and have sold many homes in the area. She combines that knowledge with a real personal care for her clients. Which was essential for me moving from NC and not knowing much about the area. Communication was also essential, and she was there any time to answer any questions for us. Our experience was superb, enough so that we recommended you to our dear friends who recently sold in Lahontan.

We worked with Liza when we purchased our home in Lahontan five years ago. Liza helped us explore various communities in Truckee and Tahoe generally. Liza really took the time to get to know us and our children to help advise us on selecting the community and home that was best for our family. Liza is incredibly knowledgeable and provides terrific guidance and advice throughout the process. Lahontan was a perfect decision for our family, and we could not be happier. We are incredibly appreciative of Liza introducing us to Lahontan and helping to guide us to the perfect home for us.

Liza was instrumental in helping us to put our Lahontan home on the market and explore new opportunities to build again. She was delightful to work with, always available to help and had a breadth of knowledge about the local real estate market and the Lahontan community. She was easy to work with, essential in helping us navigate through the sales process (both selling and buying our new property) and very personable. I highly recommend her!

D. & M. Gutman

I have purchased 3 properties and rented 2 properties through Liza. She made each experience nice and easy. With her access and spot-on assessment of market values, and her negotiating talent, it is simply not possible to find a better broker in Tahoe—PERIOD!

May often represents the pinnacle of listing season as homeowners evaluate the utility of second homes relative to use and maintenance. There will undoubtedly be an increase in listing activity as compared to the early months of 2021 as some cash out at peak pricing however the sanctuary that Tahoe has provided for so many over the last year is likely to have relatively few interested in exiting the region.

The beautiful views from Bella Vista are inspiring and unrivaled. The location is idyllic, the privacy of 20 acres is so unique and the home is gorgeous having been completely renovated in 2018. Juniper Hill is a gated community 15 minutes from the Truckee Airport.

Rolling with the Punches

April 27, 2021
This wasn’t the race I wanted, it was the race I needed. I managed to salvage a race that seemed unsalvageable, and while I didn’t perform even close to my best, I was so satisfied in overcoming the many obstacles that were thrown my way.
