My success in the computer industry afforded the opportunity to move my family to South Lake Tahoe in 2002. After spending a few years researching business opportunities in the Lake Tahoe Basin, I realized my consultative selling expertise in the computer industry would work well when applied to Real Estate Sales. Instead of being just a "Real Estate Salesperson", I focused on being a Real Estate Consultant, spending thousands of hours researching and analyzing the market in South Lake Tahoe.

I achieved quick success as a top producing agent and was recognized by my peers as the "2006 Rookie of the Year". When the market started to change in 2007, I became a student of financially distressed properties, earning certifications in Short Sales & Foreclosures from the National Association of Realtors and recognition as a Certified Distressed Property Expert. I have used this knowledge to help clients sell a property they could no longer afford and help new buyers obtain properties at below market rates.

With over $25 Million ins sales, including 20 plus short sale and bank owned transactions, I have the expertise and experience to help you with your South Lake Tahoe transaction.

I will invest the time to determine your needs and desires for a Lake Tahoe home or investment property. I pride myself and I am challenged by finding the best opportunities and options for my clients. If you want a consultant, instead of just a sales person, contact me today.

Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I have worked with different agents in North Carolina and San Francisco Bay Area before working with Ken to buy a vacation home in South Lake Tahoe. Ken Riegel is the best Real Estate Agent we have worked with. Since we didn't lived in the area it was necessary to scheduled visits according to our availability, sometimes with a limited notice. He was always very accommodating and had the properties ready for us to see. He worked hard to find the properties that met our criteria and needs. We were very impressed with the way he patiently helped us gain an understanding of the South Lake Tahoe market. Also, we feel he gave us honest and objective information about the area, neighborhoods and properties. When we found the house we wanted to buy, Ken did an excellent job negotiating the price and conditions we wanted as well as coordinating on our behalf with the local mortgage broker. We were very satisfied with Ken's professional services and highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $675K in South Lake Tahoe, CA.

We have had the pleasure of working with Ken as our vacation home buyer's agent and we are so grateful to his help. What we liked most about Ken was his ability to understand what we were looking for and very organized promptly showing the properties to us to find that we need. Ken is a very patient and genuine person. He treated us like friends. His persistent and persuading attitude definitely is a plus on his negotiation skill. I would highly recommend Ken to our friends and any others who are interested in looking for a wonderful house to live in South Lake Tahoe.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in South Lake Tahoe, CA.

I have worked with many real estate agents over the decades and none has been as knowledgeable and professional as Ken. From the time of listing through to final sale, he worked tirelessly on my sale. As a buyer, I found his work ethic just as reliable and honest. Highly recommended for buyers and sellers alike.  More Less
