Amanda Adams in Tahoe

I have been a resident of the Lake Tahoe area since 1990 and a licensed real estate agent in California and Nevada since 2004. My focus has always been on helping my clients as well as the local community through volunteer service in multiple organizations.

After 20 years of actively selling real estate in the Lake Tahoe area, I gained a lot of knowledge and experience that helped me represent my clients. I am always honored when a past client asks me to represent them again, or refers their family and friends to me due to the experience they had with my services.


Over the years I also got to know my fellow Lake Tahoe agents very well, and built many friendships with some very good agents. I can honestly say I know 90% of the South Tahoe agents very well, as well as many other agents in the other areas around the Lake and in the neighboring Carson Valley.

In 2017 I was asked to join up with a long time local agent who had his own brokerage, Paradise Real Estate. He was looking to expand his business, and needed an agent as a partner who had a unique skill set in transaction management and customer care. He chose me, and we quickly realized we were a good fit together as we both had a high standard of customer care and our ethics drove us to do right for our clients over any monetary gain we may want. He also wanted someone who he knew would take the business into the future when he retired.

Then in 2020 I purchased Paradise Real Estate from that long time broker, and began growing it from a basic real estate business and website into an in-depth information and referral resource. The company, under my leadership, focuses on getting the public the information they need to make better decisions when it comes to the purchase/sale of a property in Lake Tahoe. As I got busier and did more and more local community volunteer work, I looked to expand the business again by shifting from a direct sales company to something unique and different.


So what makes Paradise Real Estate unique and different? I realized the agent friendships I made over 20 years and knowledge I gained over the decades allowed me to assist the public in finding the perfect real estate agent to fit their needs and personality.

View me as kind of a match-maker. I listen to what you need/want, what location and type of property you are looking to buy/sell, give you valuable market data and local information to let you become more knowledgeable. Then I match you with the agent or team who is best suited to meet those needs.

My list of agents is vast, and includes everything from the top producing agent team in the South Lake Tahoe area… to a sweet and soft spoken agent who is great at holding the hand and assisting first time homebuyers… to a go-getter agent who had tons of energy and that ‘new agent’ spark. One unique feature of Paradise Real Estate is that I don’t just limit myself to referring to agents within my brokerage or franchise. Instead I break thru that barrier and use agents and teams from multiple brokerages and franchises. It’s all about your needs, not about what makes the most money for the brokerage like other referral programs.

Simply reach out to me on my CONTACT PAGE and let me know what it is you need assistance with, and I’ll match you with the right agent or team.
