I have been a licensed California Realtor since 1984, and during that time have worked in various areas of the real estate profession, such as mortgage lending for 7 years, I have done long-term and vacation rental property management for many years, residential construction, and of course real estate sales. I have also been Nevada licensed since 2003. Sales has been my favorite, as it lets me meet and work with many people to help them attain their real estate goals, either in buying or selling. The challenges and situations are endless, and the fun of dealing with the people and the situations is very exciting. My wife Helen works with me. She has been a custom home developer and has built and sold 17 spec homes in the Tahoe Basin, Incline Village, Montruex and Arrowcreek in Reno. Helen has also been in the real estate business all of her life, starting out working with her father, Earl Tanner of Tanner Construction and Investment Co in San Jose, and has been licensed since 1967. She did many apt developments with him and always did the property management for her father. She and I work together in showing properties and working with sellers. I also worked with Helen on many of her projects on the supervision and development of the houses she built. We own or have owned our own vacation and long term rental properties so understand the aspects of renting your vacation property out with enough return on your investment to enjoy the home yourself and still have others help cover the expenses of your investment. We can bring a lot of personal experience and knowledge to these kinds of transactions. Helen did mortgage banking for over twenty years while she first started her development business and worked for four very large nationwide companies as a top producer. I have continued my real estate education since first becoming licensed, taking classes in appraisal, ethics, trust fund management, and other classes, and also working toward attaining my Certified Residential Specialist designation. I have been working as a Realtor in the North Tahoe and Truckee areas since 1998, and have had many satisfied clients with many being kind enough to write letters of recommendation for me. I'm glad to share these with you. It's the challenge that brings me into real estate sales. Helping a buyer or seller accomplish their sale or purchase is not only personally gratifying to me, but it's also very rewarding to know that I have helped the client put the transaction together in the right way, so that all parties walk away with good feelings. It takes a special person to be able to do this, and this is the talent that I bring to the table. Give me a call today for a no-obligation consultation; you will be glad you did.
