About Laurie Johnson Realtor

About Laurie Johnson, Originally from Santa Rosa Ca., I moved to the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Vista Ca  in 1995 for the winter sports and outdoor lifestyle becoming involved with real estate as an appointment setter for the realtors at Squaw Valley USA  I gave away free lift tickets inside the Olympic House to potential home, condo and fractional ownership buyers. This was the beginning of my love of people and sharing what the Lake Tahoe area has to offer, quality of life a person can obtain, clean fresh air and a slower pace of life that can allow for you to create your lifetime of wonderful family traditions and memories. I have committed my life to sharing this with all who may desire it.


Over my years in the business I have worked with several local companies but none compare to the pillars of the of the Chase International Luxury mountain living experience.

A fiduciary relationship is based on knowledge, experience, and trust. These are not attributes achieved through a discount. They are achieved primarily through earning a client's trust.  Laurie's knowledge and experience in this real estate market often saves buyers more than 2 or 3 percent by understanding property values, using savvy negotiation and communication skills, and handling the intricacies of inspections. This is not something that a brokerage with inexperienced or under-compensated real estate professionals can accomplish.

 It is why you hire a Realtor, experience and expert advice. I have been in the industry since 1999 Negotiating on behalf of investors buyers and sellers alike since 2001. I am not learning the business at your expense. No one works harder or smarter than I do. I have sold homes in every neighborhood in the Tahoe Sierras, the area I have specialized in.

My clients have the advantage of having a certified negotiation expert on their side! You can always get a hold of me, I do not have minions you will be passed off to after the initial contract is written. I handle every file personally from cradle to grave with the utmost confidentiality and professionalism. The escrow period is the most critical time of the purchase, I am an agent that won't hide from you and hope for the best. This is when you need me the most. I will work diligently to get you what you want using the skills that come from over 18 years of service to my community.

I am a local short sale expert, I have handled over 50 short sales on behalf of borrowers in difficult times. I can help you avoid foreclosure. This was an area of focus from 2007-2012.

Call me for your confidential review and free help. Helping my community 1 house at a time.

I am a trained certified negotiator and seasoned area real estate expert.

It doesn't cost more to work with the best. Experience is $$ in your pocket.

Using an out of area agent, your friend or hairdresser that just got their real estate license costs you more money for sure and maybe the potential of making it a good investment for you over the long haul. Think smart from the start.

Whether you're buying or selling a family estate with intrinsic and sentimental value or your rental property that just produces income you will be my priority and I work diligently to exceed your expectations.

Experienced at, and specializing in complex situations involving trusts, trustee sales, partnerships, divorces, notice of defaults, and a multitude of other reasons a person faces when considering selling a property.

Problem solving independently, patience, resourceful, and a boat load of experience is what you get with Laurie.
