The glistening, gray lobby buzzed with excitement. A screen stood in front of the signature orange wall, white leather Eames chairs lined up in rows. Agents were milling about, chatting, laughing and sharing stories of their holiday escapades. The sales meeting was about to begin at Chase International’s Reno office.
Monise McCabe cruised through the crowd offering a friendly hello to everyone. Sitting down behind the projector, she checked the slides and adjusted the focus one last time. Eric Crosby joined her to confirm a change in the agenda. Moments later, an agent pulled him aside to ask a question about a pending transaction. (more…)
Lake Tahoe experienced robust luxury home sales in 2018, with closings on single-family homes over $1 million increasing by 19%. Average median prices rose 12% around the lake, except on the East Shore where prices softened by 9%.
Reno witnessed a 51% increase in home sales over $1 million this year, as the rest of the market paused a bit moving into 2019.
“Luxury really made a comeback this year,” said Susan Lowe, Senior Vice President and Corporate Broker at Chase International. “We saw some very strong numbers in the luxury segment, which we define at over a million dollars, roughly. Across the region, the million dollar luxury market is up 25% from 2017.”
Chase International closed out the year in December with several luxury sales highlighted here. Additionally, it’s worth noting that there was a $22 million sale in Tahoe City, continuing the trend of uber-luxury sales around Lake Tahoe in 2018. Watch for detailed year-end market reports, soon to follow.

Turning into D’Andrea Marketplace, I didn’t know what to expect visiting Chase International’s Sparks office for the very first time. On the outside, it seemed Tuscan. But walking through the door early one morning, I found myself someplace completely different—a vibrant, contemporary space.
My eye went right to the bold orange wall with the brushed steel logo that welcomes every visitor, then drifted to the workspaces beyond. Cream-colored ceilings and exposed beams, neutral tones with pops of orange and low walls for easy collaboration gave a sense of warmth, life and space. (more…)
