Summary of their experience
Bruce worked with me for almost 2 years to find the perfect house for me in Tahoe Donner. I lived out of the area so had to schedule showings when I came up, but he always had a good assortment of product do me to see. He is very knowledgeable and has a real presence in the community. This was helpful when I had to make an architectural appeal to the board of directors.

We wanted a vacation home in the Tahoe area but didn’t know exactly where. Bruce educated us on the neighborhoods, climate zones, amenities, and surroundings, as well as showing us many options before we purchased. Once we decided on a place, the process was very easy from beginning to end, and his personal service is just o friendly and professional! Bruce goes above and beyond, so very knowledgeable and so easy to work with. Bruce is now our trusted firend and we highly recommend him!

Bruce sold our home in Tahoe Donner, ca. He knew the market thoroughly, and kept constantly abreast of new properties that came on the market so that we could react in a timely manner. His knowledge, help, and advice were indispensable. We sold the property for a price the whole family was happy with, and even negotiated some very favorable additions to the sale for us. He is to the point, and direct. I was very happy with the entire listing/sale process and would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction.

Bruce has helped us with the purchase of two condo properties in Tahoe Donner over the past 15 years. When we first started to look Bruce provided us with a multitude of available options within our price ranges and accommodated our time-limited schedules to optimize our visits to Truckee. During our meetings, Bruce has always given us his full attention and highest service priority.

 

Bruce has endeavored to negotiate the best price proposals on our behalf. Once an offer was made, Bruce is efficient in preparing all the necessary and required paperwork so our purchase and sales processes went smoothly. We will continue to recommend Bruce as our local Real Estate expert for the Tahoe Donner and Truckee communities in California.

We met Bruce Watkins about 15 years ago when we were looking for a house in

Tahoe Donner. He realized our needs and took much time to shop with us. He explained the market and he also explained to us what challenge we would face in snow country, and made sure that we didn’t buy a house with potential problems.

In selling ur houses some years later, he showed us comparable prices so we were comfortable with our selling price. Obviously, he made the right call, the house sold in one day.

Bruce is a great guy, always available; we also appreciate the market updates we get from him, as well as the other news. He is a true professional.

I have worked and consulted with Bruce for more than 10 years. I found Bruce to be one of the most professional and ethical individuals I have known. He made sure I found the right home to own in Tahoe Donner, negotiate a good deal and I have consulted with him on every real estate idea I have had since. I would not consider using anyone else. He has also worked with my sister in purchasing, selling, and purchasing again in Tahoe Donner over a 15 year period.

 

Bruce has excellent knowledge of the North Tahoe/Truckee area and is very well connected with the local brokerage community. You will receive candid and helpful advice that will help you either find the right home or make sure that your home receives the maximum amount of attention when it is time to sell.

 

Bruce is also someone I trust completely. I have even given him a key to my home and he has helped when a family member has forgotten a key or when we have needed someone to check on the home.

 

I urge you to meet Bruce and have a conversation. The rest will take care of itself.

Bruce Watkins was the agent we worked with when we bought our home in Tahoe Donner. During the process of selecting, viewing, and buying the house, he was very responsive to our requests and concerns. Guided us through many choices of pro and con. Helped us pick the best house that fits our need and lifestyle. We appreciate his vast knowledge about the local market and options. We also highly appreciate his services an advice after we bought our house. He is a wonderful and cheerful person to have as a friend.

Bruce helped us find a second home to purchase in Truckee, Ca. His knowledge of the are4a and expertise in buying and maintaining second homes was great. He continues to help us to this day, with coordinating access to the house during our absence and in recommending local contractors. I would recommend him to buyers and sellers.

I met Bruce just by chance as he was in the office on one of my ventures to Tahoe Donner. I am so very happy that he was there, he understood what kind of property I was looking for, steered me towards homes that would fit our lifestyle. Bruce knew to advise us about driveways, roof slopes, potential for snow dams with each of the 15 homes we toured with him. Bruce was incredibly helpful for a buyer form the Bar Area that was looking for a vacation home. Bruce was integral with working with title, loan company, and listing agent. Could not have done this without him. We are truly happy to be Tahoe Donner homeowners. Thanks for your help, Bruce.

We have known Bruce Watkins for over 20 years. We initially met when he helped us purchase our vacation home in Tahoe Donner in 1994. He was extraordinarily patient and stayed with us for over six months showing us several properties until we finally made our purchase. His professionalism and knowledge of the market was extremely helpful in guiding us to finding the perfect home. Our relationship matured into a personal friendship and he was again helpful when it came time for us to sell our home in 2011. Bruce helped us decide when to put the property on the market and gave us excellent guidance as to price and evaluating the multiple offers we received. We have recommended Bruce to friends and they have all been appreciative. Bruce is honest, patient, and extraordinarily professional.
