Named by its first pioneers after the residing Paiute chief Tru-ki-zo, and called “Truckee” by the emigrants he helped guide west, the historic railroad settlement prides itself on being all things to all people. It retains the feel of an authentic mountain town, yet has grown into a genuine and sophisticated community, chock full of excellent dining, quality lodging and unique shopping. It maintains a legacy as one of the Wild West’s favorite watering holes.Truckee’s quaint downtown corridor is known for it's nightlife, galleries, shops and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy sushi and steaks to pasta and pizza at signature restaurants such as Moody’s Bistro, Pianeta, Pacific Crest, Dragonfly, Drunken Monkey and Cottonwood at Hilltop. For a dose of local color, you can visit a variety of funky bars or trendy lounges, all within walking distance of each other in the downtown area. Set against a bold blue sky and rugged Sierra Nevada, and centrally located within minutes of eight world class ski resorts and Lake Tahoe, the town is an adventure base camp. Thrill seekers explore the vast back-country. Others escape to their own solitude, fishing and exploring the area’s numerous lakes and streams. Golfers enjoy the abundance of challenging greens and fairways at some of the region’s best golf courses including Martis Camp, Coyote Moon, Old Greenwood, Gray’s Crossing, Tahoe Donner and Northstar to name a few.

Hi, I am a full-time realtor for the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe areas. I have been in the business since 2004 and really enjoy working with clients to find or sell their Truckee/Tahoe home. Most of my activity is in the Tahoe Donner development but I also spend significant time working Lake Tahoe, Grays Crossing, Northstar, Schaffers Mill, Lahontan and Martis Camp.
I have lived in Truckee for over 20 years and know what is important in a mountain home for buyers and sellers.
Call me, I would love to work with you!
