Inside office

Dan’s Lake Tahoe Real Estate team is a group of dedicated real estate professionals who are committed to excellent service with integrity and honesty. Your Lake Tahoe home buying or selling experience will be the best one possible because of the care and commitment of Team Dan.

Whether you’re searching for a luxury homelakefront home, your cabin in the woods or even selling your personal residence, you’ll find our knowledgeable staff ready to help you every step of the way.

Our team is known for being very knowledgeable of the Current Market Status in South Lake Tahoe, for both the California AND Nevada sides of the lake. Having your primary residence and earning your main source of income in Nevada provides property tax advantages as there is no personal state income tax, which could greatly benefit some in the long run. I wrote a short article about the differences between buying a home in California vs. Nevada.

 

Please call us at 1-530-541-2465 or email us for prompt and courteous service from a true Real Estate Professional.
Thank you very much for your interest in South Lake Tahoe Real Estate.

We were pleased with our experience buying a vacation home.

We came across Paradise Real Estate by chance and were pleased with our experience buying a vacation home. Amanda was very easy to work with and provided us abundant updates, videos, pictures and information as we moved through the process. We have already referred several friends and will seek her help again.

They are true professionals and experts at what they do!

This is my second home purchased with the Dan Spano team. I thought my first purchase with the team couldn’t be any better, but then I bought a second property and they exceeded my admittedly high expectations.

Amanda was extremely helpful on helping us put together a solid offer that got accepted.




We just recently purchased our South Lake Tahoe second home cabin with the help of Amanda Adams. She is very knowledgeable about the South Lake Tahoe real estate market and area. It's a very competitive market for buyers right now and Amanda was extremely helpful on helping us put together a solid offer that got accepted by the seller. She's very helpful also on working with out of state buyers and puts together very helpful video showings and walk throughs. I highly recommend using Amanda if you are looking to buy real estate in the South Lake Tahoe area.

Having the right realtor is important, Amanda did not let us down.

Because we were purchasing a second home in Tahoe, we had to do a lot of research remotely. Our time to look at properties in Tahoe was limited so we met with multiple realtors during our first visit. Amanda impressed us with her local knowledge and recommendations on strategies to get an offer accepted. In this competitive market, having the right realtor is important, Amanda did not let us down. We couldn’t have made this purchase without her. 5 stars!

Dan Spano did a fantastic job in finding the right property for us to purchase.

After making a decision to purchase our condo, Dan and his assistant Amanda Adams were outstanding in keeping us informed throughout the process to closing. They both have gone over and above their real estate duties and we could not be more appreciative.

We recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Lake Tahoe area.

When we had to sell our home in Meyers, we knew we would use Amanda & Dan because they had represented the purchase over 8 years earlier and we trusted them completely. We were very happy with the experience during the sale, and they got us the price we wanted within the time frame we required. They handled everything wonderfully, and we recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Lake Tahoe area.
