I love spending time in Tahoe and when the opportunity came to own a vacation home here, I just couldn't resist. My goal is to make you fall in love with it too!
Winter is amazing in Tahoe! I grew up snowboarding here and even have a few scars to show for it. The hardest thing about snowboarding in Tahoe is deciding where to go! Between Heavenly, Sierra, Northstar, Squaw, Kirkwood and a few others... there's a lot of fun to be had for all skill levels.
But my favorite time in Tahoe is the summer. That's when you can really enjoy the Lake in all it's majestic beauty. Hiking along the edge of the Lake, taking a slow stroll along the beaches, taking a dip in the clear blue water, or drifting above the water on a paddle board as the sunrises over the mountains... it's all just too amazing.
But rest assured I'm not just an enthusiastic fan. I have over a decade experience in project management so I value the importance of your time. I will use my management and communication skills to make every aspect of your vacation as enjoyable as possible.
