More about Chris and Brooke Hernandez

For Chris and Brooke Hernandez, Tahoe has always been a way of life. Two lifelong locals who spent childhood winters on the slopes, you’d be hard pressed to find another team who knows Lake Tahoe quite like these two. A dynamic husband and wife duo with over three decades of combined experience, Chris and Brooke love helping others put down roots in the beloved community they call home. Bolstered by domestic and international connections alike, Chris was a member of the US Ski Team and skied on the World Cup before settling in Tahoe and earning his Broker’s license. Similarly, Brooke earned a bachelor’s degree from Sonoma State, but it wasn’t long before she was drawn back to Lake Tahoe by the pull of summers on the beach and winters in the mountains. Propelled by a passion for sharing the Tahoe way of life, the duo partnered in 2006 and never looked back. It’s no surprise that ...

Chris and Brooke Hernandez

    • I can't really say enough good things about Brooke and Chris Hernandez. My husband and I were in a pretty unique situation and they made everything align perfectly. We can honestly say that we would have never found our first or second home without them. Also, our offer would have never been excepted without there motivated attitude and immense efforts. We really appreciated how quickly they responded to questions through email, calls and text. These two went beyond our expectations. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    • Brooke is hands down the best agent Ive ever worked with. She is a Tahoe local so she knows the area very well and was able to tell us a lot about the different neighborhoods. She made the whole buying process very smooth. Brooke is friendly, professional, and a true joy to work with, and I would recommend her to anyone without any hesitation.

    • Chris is a fantastic real estate agent!Buying a home is an experience. It is not a one-off or a small event. We've tried working with several other agents in SLT and we got lucky by finding Chris.I cannot stress enough how important role your agent plays in a home purchase. From information about the city and it's neighborhoods, local regulations, timing, even local connections after the purchase.He is this type of agent that will fight and get you even lower price than you wanted, even though it will decrease his pay at the end. Also what I really respect is he will give you enough space to decide, compared to other agents that get nervous if you're too picky, and be a bit pushy for you to buy. He is extremely patient too. My wife and I (especially) are not very easy to work with. We can look at 50 homes, over couple of months and decide not to buy. Even though Chris knew this might happen he spent the time and effort for every home we looked at, regardless if we are going to buy it or not. And because of him we are happy home owners now. Thank you Chris!

    • I found Chris and Brooke Hernandez through Yelp as they had the highest rating in the area I was looking to buy a home (South Lake Tahoe, CA). I dealt with Chris and he was awesome in every way. We were purchasing a home as a vacation rental and Chris worked with our budget to show us our options. He was also extremely knowledgeable on local laws regarding rentals and the market in Lake Tahoe. Chris communicated daily and kept us up to date throughout the entire home buying process. He went by the home when we couldn't be there to make sure everything went smoothly. Could not be happier with a realtor! Thanks Chris!!

    • Brooke is PHENOMENAL. I just recently closed on my dream cabin in Tahoe and am so grateful I found Brooke. Im absolutely convinced shes the best in Tahoe. Shes a top-notch realtor with great judgment and is savvy about the area and business. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy in Tahoe area.

    • Chris is the absolute BEST! He helped us search for a place last Christmas and we contacted him right away this fall when we wanted to buy a duplex in town. We live out of town part time and Chris helped us make appointments as needed, lined up contractor estimates and kept the ball rolling, even when others dropped it. He's professional, but relaxed and approachable. We will definitely be calling Chris again next time we are property shopping!

    • Brooke is an absolutely *amazing* realtor and we would highly recommend her to anyone considering buying a home in the South Lake Tahoe area! We seriously could not be happier with our new home and are so grateful for the service we got from Brooke. It was like working with a good friend! You cannot go wrong with her as your realtor.

    • We found Brooke and Chris thru yelp to sell our vacation home in South Lake Tahoe. They were FANTASTIC! They were very professional and knew the area! They were always available by phone to answer any and all questions. We put the house up for sale in mid October and I really didn't think we would get any activity until the spring. We sold it in 2 1/2 weeks with an all cash offer! Best realtors ever! I would certainly use them again!!!!!!
