Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Soda Springs, CA.
We recently purchased a home with Phyllis Watson and we LOVED working with her. Her command of the area and guidance with our decision was tremendous. She is a very grounded and easy to work with individual and never once did we feel like she wanted to sell us something. She wanted to make sure we found the right house that would fit with what we were looking for.

Phyllis was exceptional through the offer and closing process keeping everything on track and managing multiple tasks and people to get us closed on time. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would welcome any reference calls about our experience in working with her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Truckee, CA.
We found Phyllis Watson to be professional, knowledgeable and thorough throughout the process of selling our Tahoe Donner home. Because she knew the local market so well, she was able to accurately predict what our home would sell for and how quickly it would move. She was right. We immediately had offers right away, and sold our home at full price. One of her great strengths was her communication skills, always being proactive in keeping us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend Realtor Phyllis Watson to anyone planning to sell a home or searching for a home in Tahoe Donner and in the Truckee area in general.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Truckee, CA.
Phyllis helped us buy our property in Truckee, CA. She is a true professional, knowledgeable, patient and not at all pushy. She is very diligent with all the paperwork, inspections and fought hard for us all the way to the end. By far the best real estate agent we have ever worked with (and we've worked with quite a few).

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Truckee, CA.
I found Phyllis on Zillow while doing some searches for a vacation home in Truckee. We were familiar with the area, but not familiar with buying or owning a second home. I happened to contact several agents via Zillow, and Phyllis is an agent that stood out from the rest. She was kind, patient, and understanding throughout the whole process. Phyllis took the time to understand what we wanted, and also was a great local connection while we live in San Francisco full-time. She often knew someone who could help, got quotes, ran issues and questions to the ground and also went above and beyond contacting neighbours on our behalf to get the scoop on things. I truly believe because of that legwork, we got a bargain on our home because it seemed scary but as we peeled away the apparent issues - it showed up as a gem.

Phyllis did a good job of laying out the things we should consider before buying a place, and helped give us a sense of real estate values in the area and also was good at pushing us when needed - new properties that would move fast, understanding the pace of Truckee real estate market (more listings in the summer, slower in winter). More importantly - she brought our attention to our house that seemed out of our reach, but was actually only priced that way - we ended up with it being in our price range, and Phyllis helped negotiate to a reasonable price point very well. Her local knowledge helped us directly.

This was my first home purchase but I know it's been more complicated than most deals. Well Water, Property Line questions, easements and building codes to insurance and former title mis-recordings all plagued our home search - but Phyllis uncovered, explained and worked hard to make sure we were covered in the end. These are issues that do not often come up "in the big city" - so in a way, buying a home is much more involved in a rural area like Truckee. Phyllis is someone I trust implicitly, which is important for a real estate agent working with many customers who don't live in the area. As a bay area resident myself - I can honestly say that having a great agent in the Truckee area makes everything easier and more comfortable.

I feel that Phyllis went above and beyond several times for us and in fact, I was told by MY MORTGAGE LENDER (QUOTE): "Also, I wanted to say that I think your Realtor, Phyllis Watson, is amazing. She is one of the best I have worked with in a very long time." That's a pretty awesome unsolicited review if you ask me.

Reach out to Phyllis and see what it's like to have a great agent who isn't pushy, and is on the lookout for you while you're working away in the city!

Bought a home in 2013.
My wife and I live out of state. When we began our process of looking for a vacation home in Tahoe, we found Phyllis. She was very responsive to helping us look, even though we were just looking. Once we were able to make a trip to Tahoe, Phyllis made sure we had numerous places to look at to ensure our time was not wasted. She showed us a variety of places, and quickly learned what we were in the market for. Phyllis kept in constant contact with us informing us of listings that were in our price range and desired style. Once we found a place, Phyllis made it very easy for us to do business out of state. She coordinated everything for us, told us what we needed to look for, made recommendations for vendors to use and was always ready and available to us when we had a question. Being out of state, we wanted someone who was honest and extremely knowledgable of the Tahoe area (social, business and other activities); Phyllis exceeded all of these needs. We would definitely recommend Phyllis be your realtor if you are looking to buy. We are very appreciative of all of her help during our process, and are very happy with our purchase!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Kings Beach, CA.
Phyllis Watson is an experienced realtor who always maintained a high level of professionalism as she guided us through our home purchase. She was knowledgeable about every aspect of the purchase, and though we live in another state, she was able to easily and effectively explain and instruct us through the CA real estate laws for our purchase. Although we dealt with a difficult seller whose agent seemed ineffective at communicating with Phyllis, she never allowed that to interrupt her ability to construct and close a very satisfying deal for us, from our first look at pictures online, to the moment we actually turned the key in the door of our new home. We recommend Phyllis highly and will most certainly work with her again for any real estate purchase we make in the Tahoe/Truckee, CA area.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Kings Beach, CA.
Phyllis represented us as a buyer for our vacation home in Lake Tahoe. If you are looking for someone with the most patience and understanding, seek no further! She was very knowledgeable and took the time to educate us on the different types of homes and neighborhoods to consider. She managed to work with us despite being remote and was available practically 24x7 to support us throughout the process and even after the transaction to help with move-in! At no point was she pushing to close a deal and gave us all the time and breathing room we needed to make the best decision for us. I highly recommend Phyllis!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Homewood, CA.
For a few years my wife and I had been dreaming about owning a cabin in Tahoe. We would take vacations there and look, not quite sure if it was the right one.

Then a cabin we saw on the internet caught our eye. The contact of it was Phyllis Watson, a very proactive and caring agent. Phyllis found our cabin shortly thereafter, but it was not the initial cabin we saw.

Phyllis took us for a look to our eventual cabin that was not on our list but we went for a look see anyhow. After that she took us to a few more and returned back to revisit some more. She was patient, informative, and really a nice person to be around.

Buying a house can be a stressfull endeavor, but with Phyllis we always felt we were in good hands. Phyllis goes above and beyond expectations. Anytime we had a question or concern she would address it immediately (within minutes) and always kept open communication with both of us.

If anyone would be considering buying a house we would highly recommend Phyllis as their realtor. If it arises that we would ever have an opportunity to purchase a property again, no doubt it would be from Phyllis only.

Bought a home in 2011.
Great experience working with Phyllis. She was the consummate professional! The property in question had a variety of issues which she notified me of, provided solution options, and moved forward managing the process. I would highly recommend Phyllis. --Adrian

Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $275K in Truckee, CA.
For over 6 months Phyllis was available to answer our questions as we decided whether to rent or sell our condo. Her knowledge of the Tahoe Donner area, and the services available if we chose to rent, were amazing. She was very patient with us and made us feel like our needs were very important to her. When we finally chose to sell, she was right on top of everything. If we are ever able to purchase anything in Tahoe Donner again, we will call Phyllis!!
