First Ever San Francisco – Lake Tahoe Real Estate Caravan And Ski Extravaganza

[R.I.P. Jamie Pierre]

We’re falling into ski season, and you all know I love me some powder. Many of you also know I grew up in Reno Nevada, with Lake Tahoe as my backyard. I learned to ski at the ripe old age of two, I raced, I burned out, I switched to snowboarding, and now I’m back on the two planks. And I can’t get enough.

I know many of you fellow San Franciscans feel the same way, and enjoy all of the same things I love about our proximity to Lake Tahoe. Being in real estate, I also know many of you have extra cash to burn and dream of owning your own slice of Tahoe heaven that frequently gets buried under multiple feet of snow. That’s why, with the help of my connections up Tahoe way, we want to get you your Lake Tahoe ski pad.

The plan: Spend a day (or more) skiing (with me and some local Tahoe rippers), go see property with proximity to Tahoe ski areas, grab cocktails, make offers, drink champagne (choke champagne powder), invite friends, ski more, and live the Tahoe dream.

The thoughts are preliminary at this point, but far enough along that connections up Tahoe way have been established, homes are being scouted, vans can be rented, and we just need you.

The question is, “Would you, or anyone you know, be interested in taking part in the first ever San Francisco-Lake Tahoe real estate caravan and ski extravaganza?” Feel free to share your yes / no, and thoughts in the comments below, or contact me directly to be kept in the loop or share thoughts privately. With any luck, we can put this together before the snow gets too deep and the “Out of Office Auto Replies” start kicking in.

Pray for snow!

Maybe we’d all be so lucky as to score days like this:

[Snowboarders obviously welcome too. We don’t discriminate.]

Would You Like Your Property Listed On

I get at least one email each week from a different person or reader asking me to give their property that is currently for sale some exposure on I’m flattered. But unless your property is of utter and complete jaw dropping significance, if you would like your property featured on my blog, it’s simple, don’t list with the other agent, list your property for sale with me. Not only will you get exposure here, but I’ll expose the hell out of it on the other networks of which I am a part. It will also be on Trulia, Zillow,, and likely show up in more online searches for your address, as a result of the keyword post I can do for it here.

So before you sign that listing agreement with another agent who is selling you on the glossy brochures that end up in recycling (often in landfill), or a fancy website that simply floats out in cyberspace, remember that print advertising is pretty much dead, and Google, Trulia, Zillow, and keyword search are king. More than 80% of home buyers begin and end their home search online, so you have every reason to want to be on, and I’d be happy to help get you here.

I am an industry leader in San Francisco blogging and web traffic, and my brokerage, Zephyr Real Estate, is also number one when it comes to internet, search engine optimization, and generally capturing buyers where it matters most…on the internet.

If you still decide to list your property for sale with another San Francisco agent (it’s cool, I won’t take it personally), that agent is free to contact me directly and request that I advertise your property here (for a fee). If you’d still like to try to get me to blog about your property, send it as a “tip”, and you’ll likely have better luck getting featured on this site.

As always, thanks to all of the loyal readers I have, and the many clients that have chosen to work with me already. At some point, I won’t be as busy as I am now, and will pick up blogging where I left off. With that, I end the gloating and will go back to being my humble old self.
