Northstar Buyer Review!

“Ricki is absolutely the best of the best! We recently purchased a vacation home in Truckee (Northstar), and were concerned about the challenges of coordinating everything from afar, but Ricki managed everything seamlessly from start to finish. She was our eyes, ears, and feet on the ground in Truckee. She works hard, knows the market well, was always prepared and responsive when we had questions or concerns (day or night), and ensured everything flowed smoothly from start to finish. She was there to represent us when we couldn’t be there ourselves, even after the close of escrow, helping to coordinate repairs and deliveries. She went way above and beyond what we expected! Ricki is well respected in the Truckee/Tahoe real estate market; everyone knows and loves her! She has numerous connections for getting work done and anything else you could possibly need. She will take of you like a friend, always protecting your interests. Ricki is an absolute joy to work with, and made the purchase of our vacation home an enjoyable process.”

4515 Silver Ridge Lane, Carnelian Bay, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was very professional and easy to work with. The home we bought was chosen by Ricki and we absolutely love it. Ricki is very knowledgeable of the entire area and the pros and cons of the neighborhoods. The real question is would I use her services again. WITHOUT A DOUBT!



7072 8th Ave, Tahoma, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki Manahan helped made our dream of 25 years come true. My husband and I had been looking for over 25 years for an affordable but yet not a complete fixer on the west shore of Lake Tahoe for 25 years. Ricki found the house we LOVE and made the deal happen!! She was so friendly but maneuvered through so much for us to get us in our dream house!! If it was not for her and her partner, I don’t think we would be enjoying our house up at Tahoe. Ricki was so nice to our whole family and went the extra mile for us. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a professional, hard-working but very friendly agent. We have told all of our friends about her. We would use her again.



7278 5th Ave, Tahoma, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: I would not hesitate to recommend Ricki Manahan’s service to anyone I know. She is completely professional, intuitive (an essential attribute in my opinion for any realtor), warm, approachable. Ricki read us immediately. I think we looked at 12 homes that day. I told her the one I wanted. I knew from the get-go; and so did Ricki. The transaction was: seamless, painless, stress-free & I would do it again! Ricki is a warm, authentic individual who works 100% for her customer. She is also a steely professional who absolutely knows the business she is in. The best thing is, Ricki is a multi-dimensional pro who a client can really relate to. ‘Getting the job done’ is as natural to her as is her client ‘knowing the right property for them.



14186 South Shore Drive, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: I have worked with Ricki over a period of 3 years until we found the perfect place for us. Throughout this entire time she was always fully engaged and brought properties that she thought could be a fit proactively to our attention. She did not waste our time with stuff that wasn’t a fit. She was also hugely helpful through the actual sales transactions as well as afterwards, when we completed some further work on the property (something she didn’t have to do). Truly a great experience all around.



Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was wonderful to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and guided us in our home purchase in Truckee. We were not from the area and Ricki helped us avoid many pitfalls purchasing a home in an area that can receive so much snow. We would definitely recommend working with Ricki and would work with her again if we buy/sell another home in the area.



12361 Northwoods Blvd, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki is very professional, experienced, informative about the area, and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her to anybody who is looking for a house.

11406 Zermatt Dr, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. She clearly knows the greater Truckee market and current house values. Highly recommend.



15360 Archery View, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki is a very proactive agent, willing to work aggressively towards putting the best deal together. She helped get me the home I was after, in a contested multiple offer situation. She has a thorough understanding on how best to purchase investment group/bank owned properties, and she’s a terrific individual with whom to work. Ricki is professional, focused, and a lot of fun; I’d recommend her to anyone interested in either buying or selling.



12541 Stockholm Way, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was accessible, and always returned our calls promptly. She understood what we were looking for quickly, and didn’t waste our time on properties that didn’t fit our needs. When we found a property that worked for us, she was very helpful in guiding us through a long and difficult negotiation. Her knowledge and instincts proved correct in helping us close the purchase successfully.



13184 Davos Drive, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was very professional, knowledgeable and instilled a lot of confidence in us, the buyers. We would highly recommend Ricki. She went out of her way to meet with us and help make our home-buying dream a reality. We felt like she looked out for us and her perseverance paid off. We are very grateful to have met Ricki and to have had her involved in our home purchase. She made our home purchase especially memorable and gratifying. Others would be very fortunate to have Ricki as their agent.



145 Chipmunk Street, Kings Beach, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Very professional and committed to our success in buying this home.



12798 Northwoods Blvd 428, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki’s in depth knowledge of the local market, combined with her team of professionals, made our vacation home purchase experience fast and easy. We love our new place in Tahoe Donner, thank you Ricki!



615 Rawhide Dr, Tahoe City, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Very knowledgeable and responsive. Went from casually looking to buying in 1 week.



Tahoe Vista, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was amazing from the beginning. She worked hard every step of the way and even harder when we found the house we loved. She took time out of her own vacation to do the viewings with us and she did it with a smile on her face.



12461 Northwoods Blvd, Truckee, CA

I had the pleasure of working with both Ricki my recent purchase in Tahoe Donner. They work as a team and provided a wealth of experience and knowledge for the area I was looking in North Lake Tahoe. Each of them were professional in their services and always on time when showing property and keeping me abreast of schedules and deadlines while in escrow. I will definitely consider them in future transactions in the Lake Tahoe area.



9893 Yacht Street, Brockway, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was a perfect fit in a realtor for us!



14222 Skislope Way, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: Ricki was a great help! We contacted her about purchasing a home and had a short window to find the perfect place. She listened to our wants, gave some great advice, and scheduled a tour. One trip up to Tahoe and we found the perfect place.



11679 Snowpeak Way 538, Truckee, CA from Redfin

CA from Redfin: I had a great experience working with Ricki Manahan. She was very responsive and kept direct communication with me during our home purchase. The entire process was smooth and low stress. I highly recommend them.

Canute and Michelle from Zillow

Ricki and the Group are our All Star team that work hard on getting us the best deal possible. Knowledgeable and savvy they negotiate the fine details to ensure their clients are always taken care of. We highly recommend them for all your real estate deals.



JoshuaMiller20 from Zillow

We bought a 2nd home with Ricki representing us last year. We love the house and town of Truckee so much that we are now moving there full-time a year later. We had a high-maintenance buying situation where we learned after getting in contract that the seller was involved in and  getting away with tax evasion, and the house was entangled in that mess. We nearly backed out because of the ethical concerns. It was an uncommon and stressful situation requiring additional research from all parties that Ricki handled masterfully. They ensured we were protected as buyers and that everything worked out well. Prior to getting in contract, we found their market knowledge of the various neighborhoods in Truckee to be helpful in boosting our market knowledge and helping us more quickly determine what and where was ideal for us. 



SikeMo from Zillow

Ricki did a great job in helping us find and purchase a home in Truckee. They were very responsive, knowledgeable, and helped us negotiate a good deal.
