December 2018 Update From Truckee, California


We are fortunate to live in a place where we need only look out a window to find beauty—it’s everywhere. Even today as I work at our Donner Lake Dickson office, I look out to views of the lake with kids on the swingset over freshly fallen snow. The sun is shining, people are outside exercising and families are spending time doing things that are meaningful and rejuvenating during what can be a stressful holiday season.

Part of why we love what we do is that we are in the business of making dreams of both primary and vacation home ownership a reality. People are here because they are passionate-whether for skiing, hiking, fresh air, small town community or simply the landscape. This area brings people who intentionally choose Truckee and Tahoe. That simple fact creates an immense impact on the enthusiasm our residents and visitors share. It’s a happy place to be!

This year Kane and I had the chance to work with many of the friends we grew up with (Kane and I grew up in Truckee and Jessica on the East Coast). It was a special year reconnecting and deepening relationships with old friends who are making the conscious choice to raise their families here. KJM also welcomed many new families from out of the area who took the leap to test this area out as full time residents-so far we have heard rave reviews about their decisions! The vibrancy of this community continues to grow and the area itself is developing and improving in ways that make us proud to live and work here.

Professionally, we are setting goals and getting excited for 2019. We will continue to update you on new area developments as well as market updates. We imagine this next year will continue to bring many changes with political and economic developments so stay tuned for what’s in store and also, let us know if you would like our Annual Summary of 2018 which will be coming out in the next week.

Personally, we are getting ready to turn the page to another year with new opportunities to grow as individuals.  See below for some of our 2019 intentions.

2019 Goals and Intentions

Kane ~ Train for and swim in the Trans Tahoe Relay and Donner Lake Swim again
