SUMMERTIME AT 160 CHERRY

Beyond the A-symmetrical front gate lies 160 Cherry Street. Situated on 2.38 acres and backing to Forest Service land, this property encapsulates privacy and seclusion without compromising your proximity to the lake.

Completed in 2020, this home features endless unique components, such as a hanging staircase made out of forged steel, and the use of reclaimed wood from the original Tahoe Tavern Pier that was reworked for multiple pieces throughout this spectacular home. The 20-foot stone, floor-to-ceiling, double-sided fireplace centered in the great room is the heart for family gatherings and celebrations.

The main home has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a 1,400-square-foot deck with a covered patio and wood-burning fireplace. The guest house is a fully detached one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with four additional built-in bunk beds to accommodate both friends and family.

The radiant heat, air conditioning units, air purifying system, elevator, and heated stairs and driveway are the finishing touches to ensure life at Cherry Street is as effortless as it gets.

As a member of Tahoe Swiss Village’s homeowner’s association, you can enjoy the use of two buoys, two piers, and a private beach located just across the street. This custom home was initially envisioned as a mountain lodge with an industrial feel, and the dedicated group of minds behind it brought this vision to life. It was designed, engineered, and built by local teams who have a deep affinity for this area and worked together to seamlessly integrate the intimate characteristics of the home with the nature that surrounds it.

Amie Quirarte of The Q Group Speaks at Inman Connect New York

When real estate agents hear the words “personal brand” the first things they think of might be business cards, social media posts and email newsletters.

But according to Douglas Elliman’s McKenzie Ryan, an agent in New York, a personal brand should extend into every asset of life.

“A brand is not one dimensional, or what you decide you want to portray on social media,” she told the audience at Inman Connect New York on Tuesday. “A brand is who you show up as in real life and a brand is who you are.”

Ryan spoke on a panel about strategies for building a lasting personal brand alongside Amie Quirarte of Tahoe Luxury Properties and Jas Takhar of REC Canada.

Takhar agreed with Ryan, and argued that forming a consistent personal brand was all but essential for those working in real estate in the current market.

That’s not to say social media should be neglected. Many savvy potential seller clients may be more swayed by your social media presence than your listing presentation.

“I personally have a love-hate relationship with social media but we have to have a presence and what does that presence communicate,” Michelle Griffith of Douglas Elliman said during a panel conversation on winning listing presentations on Tuesday. “Do you have video footage so that they can understand who you are and get a feeling? I think that as agents, now more than ever we need to really focus on: if our clients are cyber-stalking us, what does that look like?”

Your brand shouldn’t be forced though, and should be an accurate representation of who you are.

“I think that in the beginning especially when you’re getting started and you’re trying to find out what your brand is going to look like its easy to try to fit into a mold of ‘I want to be in this box so that every single person likes me,’” Quirarte said. “Fuck that — you’ve got to do what is best for you. You need to be the agent that you are.”

“It sounds so cheesy and so lame but it goes a long way,” she added.
