TRUCKEE, Calif., September 26, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Ricki Manahan, REALTOR®, Engel & Volkers Brokerage, The Elder Group Tahoe, has joined Noticed©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Manahan has been chosen as a Distinguished Real Estate Professional™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout her career.
Manahan outshines others in her field due to her educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. Having sold over $100 million in real estate, she is one of the top producing agents in North Lake Tahoe and consistently ranks in the top 10 percent of her market.
With over 12 years dedicated to real estate, Manahan brings a wealth of knowledge to her industry, and, in particular, to her area of expertise, North Lake Tahoe’s real estate market. When asked why she decided to pursue a career in real estate, Manahan said:We have 18 world-class ski resorts, and we just had a big snow year. Typically, when we get a lot of snow, the prices go way up the following year because more people want to come here to ski. We also have a lot more families moving here from the Bay Area and living here full-time than we used to, which is also driving the prices up.
"I love looking at houses, and I can’t do the same thing every day. I like to do different things and always meet new people. In real estate, I get to do all of that. I get to go out into the field, and I don’t have to sit at a desk all day.”
Before going into real estate, Manahan had a thriving career as an entrepreneur and had started several successful businesses ranging from a pet sitting service to a clothing company. Today, she leverages her prior business experience, extensive sales training, local connections, and exceptional negotiation skills to help her clients find ideal properties suited to their personal and financial goals.
As a thought leader in her field, Manahan keeps her finger on the pulse of prevailing trends in Lake Tahoe real estate. One of the premier outdoor recreation destinations in the country, Lake Tahoe's market largely consists of second homes, which Manahan notes typically makes it fairly stable. She explains, however, that home values have been going up recently, which she attributes to several factors:
"We have 18 world-class ski resorts, and we just had a big snow year. Typically, when we get a lot of snow, the prices go way up the following year because more people want to come here to ski. We also have a lot more families moving here from the Bay Area and living here full-time than we used to, which is also driving the prices up.”
With Lake Tahoe’s booming market, Manahan looks forward to expanding her team in the near future to match the increasing demand. She also plans to obtain her Nevada real estate license so that she can serve clients on both sides of the lake.
