Lake Tahoe — The Place of the Immortals

“We plodded on, two or three hours longer, and at last the Lake burst upon us — a noble sheet of blue water lifted six thousand three hundred feet above the level of the sea, and walled in by a rim of snow-clad mountain peaks that towered aloft full three thousand feet higher still! It was a vast oval, and one would have to use up eighty or a hundred good miles in traveling around it. As it lay there with the shadows of the mountains brilliantly photographed upon its still surface I thought it must surely be the fairest picture the whole earth affords.”                                                                                – Mark Twain, on his first glimpse of the Lake.


There has been one supreme city in the state of  Nevada, in the days of Twain, and Brando, of Davis and Sinatra, the preeminence of Lake Tahoe was as unquestioned as it is today.  It stood then as it stands now, the chosen place of the immortals — the inevitable  preference wherever quiet luxury and glorious nature are understood and esteemed.


Here at LakeTahoeLuxuryHomes.com we aim to provide the latest developments in the Tahoe luxury market.  When it comes to high end real estate, there’s no room for error; we want to provide you the most comprehensive market reports to help you in one of the biggest financial decisions of your life.


We have also paved quick access for you to quickly view listings around the Lake — from Zephyr Cove to Glenbrook, from Incline Village to South Tahoe.  Looking for a home does not come without stressful anticipation, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to finding your desired property.



Since early 2011 we started a program called “closer look” — for all our pre-approved buyers we have a team of photographers and videographers that will take a “closer look”  into any home in the Tahoe area free of charge, all you have to do is to be a pre-approved buyer.


Many of our website visitors are from outside states, and in our experience, the last straw from making an offer for many out-of-town buyers is seeing the home for themselves; this is the next best thing as you not only get multiple photos and videos but you also get an un-biased perspective aside from what the listing agent is telling you.  Send us email to request one today…



Our broker, Chase International, is a dynamic, independent real estate firm committed to the success of our clients, sales associate, staff and community.  Founded in 1986, Chase has developed a strong reputation as the “leader in luxury real estate” consistently being the top real estate company at the Lake for selling $5 million and above listings.


1.  Powerful Connections

We offer you the right connections with an extensive network of powerful clients, top producing brokers worldwide and exclusive affiliations.  Some of our exclusive partnerships that drive targeted buyers to our listings include:  Realtor.com, LuxuryRealEstate.com and Mayfair International Realty among many others.


2. Effective Marketing

This is the result of our vision that started in 2007 to give the maximum online exposure to our listings.  90% of home buyers start their search in the internet.  So four years ago we decided to take a risk and devote 90% of our resources to online marketing.  Fortunately, the risk paid off. Our sites attract home buyers from all over the country, mostly from North America.

Think of it as an open house that attracts potential buyers, but instead of just having your open house on a specific weekend, our site attracts hundreds of targeted buyers every week.  When we list your house you immediately get front seat in the top real estate sites in Northern Nevada specifically Lake Tahoe.  Our company site alone gets over 3,000 visits per month.


3. Extensive Local Coverage

The name Chase International (our broker) is synonymous with expertise.  Chase has a family of over 225 agents supported by 20  of the top real estate professionals in North America, hand picked by our founder, Shari Chase throughout the last 25 years with offices in Zephyr Cove, South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Squaw Valley, Reno, Glenbrook, Incline Village, Truckee and London.
