Dave Donnelly

As a kid, I spent a lot of time on the eastern slope of the Sierra fishing with my Dad. I loved the mountains and always wanted to live where the water and air were clean. In 2000 I moved to Truckee while working as a corporate pilot. In 2006 I made the change to residential real estate, and have been building my business ever since. Early on I realized who I was not going to be, a salesman. I do not like salesmanship being put on me and I would never treat others that way. My clients quickly see in me that I am looking out for them, and not myself. Buying a first home in the mountains requires some education in order to not make a mistake. My job is to educate my clients to the unseen realities, and technical aspects of owning a home in snow country. Availability is the key to successful interaction with my clients. I am available nights and weekends but still find time to play in our amazing back yard. My sports include skiing and snowboarding, both at resorts and in the backcountry, as well as paragliding, speedflying, fly-fishing, mountain biking, hiking and backpacking.  I would love to help you find a great primary or second home in our mountain playground!

Jessica Ferguson

Originally from Alexandria, VA, Jessica has been fortunate to call the Lake Tahoe-Truckee area home since 2002. During that time, she has learned the nooks and crannies of the various communities that stretch from Lake Tahoe's West to North shores, Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows, to the greater Truckee area, up to Donner Summit. Her active exploration of the copious trail systems and ski resorts have made her a wealth of knowledge for recreational activities as well.

Having studied real estate and the changing market conditions over the course of the past decade, Jessica knows our local market rhythm and property values intimately. Jessica excels at matching buyers with the right neighborhoods, and employs a professional yet thoughtful approach to marketing and pricing that ensures success for sellers. With strong negotiation skills and an ability to find compromise in all possible scenarios, Jessica's solid communication skills will help to bridge any gaps, and find solutions to any challenges.

“I approach my business relationships the same way that I approach my personal relationships – with honesty, commitment, and compromise. With over ten years of experience in my profession, I believe that you'll find me to be a reliable and knowledgeable resource, and I will help you to realize your real estate goals.”

As a full time real estate professional, Jessica consistently exceeds expectations and attains exceptional results. On average, Jessica's listings sell within 3% of their list price and the vast majority of Jessica's clients come from referrals – once you work with her, you will want to send your family & friends to her as well!

David Hipkins

David settled here in the High Sierra in 1984 after a career as an international IBM mainframe computer consultant. David has lived in other countries and traveled the world, and was attracted to the healthy Truckee-Tahoe lifestyle, and the opportunity to indulge his appetites for skiing and backpacking right out of his own back door. David applies his energy and passions to both his work and play.

His clients have found that his technical aptitudes, attention to detail and excellent communication skills facilitate both smooth and efficient transactions, as evidenced by his repeat business and significant referral base. As well as being an experienced negotiator, David shares his expert local knowledge and significant experience when working with his clients, taking care and pride in explaining the myriad technical aspects and "outside the box" thinking that needs to be applied when considering mountain properties.

David is also very disciplined, and monitors his market and inventory unfailingly on a daily basis, even when away from his market and while travelling. He and his wife Lynette recently completed the building of their home in Tahoe Donner, incorporating all of the design and comfort considerations and experience acquired from decades of High Sierra living.

David Wright

David Wright is a native Californian who moved to the Sierra from Santa Cruz. He was a founding member with North Woods Realty, the first office in Tahoe Donner ℠ back in '91. Being from the coast, his passions remain surfing, windsurfing, sailing his 34' sloop "SELKIE", Salmon fishing, SCUBA and free diving. A background in marine biology and a SCUBA instructor go with the territory. David served 4 years as a Carpenter's Apprentice, achieving his "Journeyman Card", then his General Contractor's License. As a contractor, he specialized in beachfront homes and Victorian renovations. He built a loyal clientele with his "Quality oriented attention to detail and superior customer service" reputation.

That standard remains his banner as a REALTOR®.

David is an avid backcountry skier, and an "A" team member of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue. Spring, summer and fall will find him hiking, mountain biking, golfing, fly fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and getting to his boat when time allows.

"Since I was 17 I have been involved in the housing industry - literally from the ground up. I am not your typical "salesman". In fact, I do not consider myself a salesman at all. I am an expert on functional & pleasing designs for our climate. I honestly market the positive attributes of properties I have listed. If buying from me, you will become acquainted with terms such as "micro climate" "snow load" "sun exposure" "snow shed from the roof" and "winter access". I match clients with wholesome properties. Making money is a by-product of what I do, not the focus - the focus is taking care of my clients."

David is also a strong contributing member of TDHomes.com Referral Associates.
David and his wife Susie live in Tahoe Donner ℠.
