Kerry helped me and my wife purchase a lot in Truckee earlier this year. She was extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and never pushy. She quickly gained our trust and guided us through the whole process. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Kerry helped us with the purchase of a condo at Alpine Meadows. What can I say other than that she is a consummate professional. Kerry was everything we could have asked for in an agent, and over the time we got to know her, a friend.

She was extremely knowledgeable about the market, always responsive and sensitive to our needs, never pushy. She let us know when properties we might be interested in came on the market and was always available to show us the ones we were interested in. She gave us excellent advice in connection with our purchase and recommended us to a mortgage broker who was fast and thorough. She helped us put together an offer that was accepted in a competitive bid situation, notwithstanding the fact that our offer was slightly lower than a competing one. She worked with us through a successful close. We are very happy and look forward to many years enjoying our vacation home.

We recommend Kerry without hesitation to anyone looking for property in Tahoe. Thanks so much, Kerry, we're very grateful for all the help you gave us.

Kerry helped my husband and I find a dream vacation home in Tahoe. She was very responsive to our needs, knew the local market like the back of her hand, and continued to go above and beyond before, during, and after the transaction closed. We highly recommend her!

Kerry was my listing agent to sell my home on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Kerry did the most fantastic job throughout the entire process. I’d give 10 stars if I could. She listened to me and fully grasped what was important to me concerning my goals in selling. Kerry put together strategies on marketing that built up interest in the home. Her keen business sense kept the stress out of the process. She spent time providing insights into the values of the home, comparable properties which came from her knowing the local market. One of the most important qualities she showed me was her knowledge of the process and explaining it proactively prior to listing. Kerry was so proactive in managing details and always keeping me informed with information and I felt a great feeling of support.

What I admired most that set Kerry apart from other agents I’ve used was her integrity and respect for all parties during this process. She negotiated a sale that was a win-win for me, the seller, and the buyers. Her follow up was impeccable. Kerry has a true understanding of the complexity of a real estate transaction and was very sensitive and dedicated to my particular needs as I was out of town during most of the process of selling my home. I was impressed with Kerry’s strong desire to accomplish my goals. As a listing agent she had a team of experienced tradespeople, photographers and the entire Sotheby’s network. I highly recommend Kerry to sell or help you buy real estate.

We are so fortunate to have worked with Kerry to purchase a beautiful home in the Lake Tahoe area. Kerry listened to what we wanted and could afford, used our time efficiently, and is extremely savvy about how to navigate the North Tahoe market. She strikes the perfect balance between guiding and listening.
