A New Office to Better Serve You

Dickson Realty Truckee is proud to announce a new addition to the family.  Charlie and Diane White, longtime owners of Donner Lake Realty, have announced that the sales division of their firm has joined Dickson Realty Truckee.

Sales will now be offered under the Dickson Realty banner at their 15947 South Shore Drive, Truckee, location, while the leasing and property management aspect of the business will continue to operate under the Donner Lake Realty name at the 15963 South Shore Drive, Truckee, location.

This new location allows us to better serve our Donner  Lake/Summit clients and we’re very pleased about that.  We hope you will stop in soon to check out the new office!

Home Grown

Get your alpine bells and patriotic colors out!  It’s time once again as the games of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, beginning on February 6th.  Many of us  in the Tahoe area will be glued to our TV’s during certain events, in particular, as a roster of Tahoe area athletes compete for medals.

We have the perfect training grounds for Olympic winter athletes, of course.   These participants have spent countless hours on local slopes and trails, towards this goal.  From the first attempts at “pizza slices” and “French fries” to the Buddy Werner leagues, to a race or free style team at one of the local ski resorts, to the US Ski Team – it’s a long. long haul.  Hopefully, their perseverance will be rewarded with podium positions.
