Born and raised in Marin County, Sam Swigard moved to Tahoe 30 years ago to live the lifestyle her clients seek. She began her real estate career in 1998 and shares over 20 years of Tahoe/Truckee real estate sales with her clients. Sam aligned herself with Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty in 2015 and has successfully utilized their superior marketing and brand recognition to position herself as a consistent top producing broker for the company and area.

She understands the disclosures, homeowner commitments and governing bodies that a buyer or seller may encounter across the region’s diverse collection of communities.
“I can't emphasize this enough. If you need to or want to buy or sell a home in the Truckee, Tahoe area, Samantha Swigard is by far, one of the most knowledgeable, caring, and professional Realtors you'll ever meet,” said Alan Bleiweiss, one of Sam’s clients.
