Do yourself a favor and give Mark Lowenstern with Chase International a call. My experience with him has been very positive. He is very knowledgeable about the market conditions in the North Tahoe region. He is knowledgeable about the business trade area and the community. He shows up on time to his appointments and is prepared with comps and other helpful information. He is motivated and will work hard to fulfill your needs, even if it means showing you every property that meets your requirements or having open houses to sell your property. His firm and his marketing are top notch.
I don’t make these comments lightly. I have 30 years experience as a commercial real estate broker, I know what it takes to succeed in this business and Mark has these skills. Make Chase your first call and get to know Mark. You will be glad you did!
Properties Unlimited Commercial REWe did the purchase of the John McKinney lot through you because you pointed out key features that closed the deal in our minds. Your value-add was in your thoughtfulness when walking the lot with us, pointing our the sierra crest views we never noticed, etc. Thus Nancy and I concluded that you deserved the deal.We’ve never shared these things, but I thought you’d appreciate the context and the observation that we really appreciate your approach (and that it’s remarkably different from our experiences with others). You clearly take a long-term view of serving your clients, and it doesn’t hurt that you also have a genuine interest in architecture and that you like to see houses.I’m sure these traits will serve you well in the long run. Please don’t hesitate to give out my contact info if you ever need a reference.
Mark was found by my real estate Daughter. When I decided to purchase a second home in the Truckee area, my daughter did research on available properties that fit our needs. In making inquires with the listing agents, Mark was the ONLY agent that responded to her request. She and Mark agreed on a co- share representing the buyer's side. Mark set up several showings ( not necessarily his listings) for inspection. Mark was informative and shared his local knowledge freely, pointing out good AND not so good features. He had saved the best for last showing us a property fitting about all of our needs. It's was a bit higher priced than what I had planned for, however, with a market selling almost as fast as they became available I wrote an offer. My offer was accepted with a minor adjustment with price. ( I liked the property so much I was ready for a full price.)
So, YES, I would recommend Mark for your Truckee and Tahoe real estate agent.
PS: I am a retired real estate broker having owned three offices in the SF Bay

Mark was able to assess my needs immediately after an initial phone call. I felt he was attentive, intuitive, accessible and honest--qualities that are rare to find in a realtor.
I highly recommend Mark.
