4180 Ferguson Avenue, Carnelian Bay, California

4 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms (4 Full and 3 Half) | 3,832 SF

Sale Price $9,500,000

Some of the most highly coveted shoreline property in the country is hitting the market for the first time in a decade. The nearly 4,000-square-foot home on the north shore of Lake Tahoe sits in a secluded neighborhood in Carnelian Bay. This property features 50 feet of lake frontage, includes two buoys on Lake Tahoe, and is a dream opportunity for families who love the outdoors.

“We’ve made so many fantastic memories here over the years,” says Mike Andersen, former director of career development with the University of California football team. “There’s nothing like getting up in the morning and walking right out the back door and jumping into the Lake. I would often just sit and watch Osprey catch fish and then fly right past our deck on their way back to their nest. It’s such a magical location.”

This home features four bedrooms and seven baths, and a full width lakeside deck that shows off the spectacular panoramas of Lake Tahoe throughout the year. The entry-level features a heated driveway, spacious garage, a well-appointed half bath, laundry room and two ensuite bedrooms – including the primary suite. Jaw-dropping lake views and a large porch extend to both bedrooms on that level. The upstairs features another expansive deck, the kitchen, living and dining rooms, an office, a wet bar, two more ensuite bedrooms and a half bathroom. Downstairs there’s a large family room, a bathroom, a large storage closet and a third deck and stairs that take you right down to the lake.

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.
