Life is full of chapters. While on vacation from Little Rock, AR in San Fransisco in 89' with my husband David, we were unlucky enough to get caught in the massive earthquake which put Bay Bridge in the Pacific. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as David and I rented a car and drove out to Tahoe. It was love at first sight. The next few years consisted of packing and unpacking, and touring all Tahoe had to offer during vacations; then we found Tori Long & Northstar Mountain.
Lisa is an extraordinarily talented real estate professional. Her intimate knowledge of the market, customers, buying and selling dynamics and her ability to get a deal done make her one of the best in the business. Lisa works with a broad network of professionals within her office and her extended network e.g. trades people, loan, title, appraisers, inspectors etc. She is the glue and catalyst that makes transactions sail through with happy parties all around. A tall task that she handles expertly and with ease. I would unequivocally recommend Lisa Smith without reservation.
As a retired residential real estate agent, my expectations ran high. Lisa exceeded all of those expectations in two transactions, one representing us as a seller, and one as a buyer. If you are coming from a major metro, it is important to realize that the Resort Communities in Truckee are a different sort of 'animal'. Lisa is 'tuned in' to the up-coming listings, HOA peculiarities, and quirks associated with the various developments. She managed problematic title company issues, contractors, and always seemed to be the 'soothsayer' of advice in a 2020 market that defied predictability.
Lisa was amazing from start to finish! She was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We had an electrical issue that arose that needed a coordinated effort between the HOA, electrician and electric company and Lisa handled everything seamlessly. And, the icing on the cake, was that she was able to sell our condo at the highest price for a 2 bed 1.5 bath Gold Bend unit in years! I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Lisa helped us prepare our condo for sale and staged it. Her detailed knowledge of the area enabled her to describe the neighborhood, its remarkable quiet and proximity to wonderful trails, and its convenience for skiing. Lisa is familiar with the values of comparable properties, having sold a number of them recently. She proposed an appropriate asking price. She carried out the transaction most efficiently, keeping us informed of the various steps, and smoothing out the details of the process. We are delighted to have selected Lisa as our agent and we recommend her enthusiastically.
