        • Monica helped me buy a home

            Monica was great in helping us find a beautiful home in Dollar Point - we saw multiple properties but once we found the house we loved, Monica helped us deal with every aspect of the purchase. We live outside the US and she made the whole process very easy for us.

          • Monica helped me buy a home

              Can't say enough good about our wonderful experience working with Monica. She worked with us for a year to find the right vacation home for our family in Lake Tahoe. In the end, she helped us find a lot we could build on and the right contractor to do it. She gets our wholehearted and highest recommendation.

            • Monica helped me buy a home

                Monica Armanino is an honest, knowledgeable, hardworking agent who looks out for her customer's best interests. She knows the area, understands issues of zoning, and can recommend other professionals and services. I recommend her with full confidence based on the role she played in the successful purchase of a house on the west shore, as well as the on-going advice and friendship she has provided us in the past several years since.

              • "Homelight is an amazing online resource. We did not know one real estate agent from another, and wanted someone with experience and knowledge of the local community to represent us on the sale of our investment property in northern California. We found Monica Armanino through Homelight, a real estate agent, and it was a match perfect for our needs. She advised us o how to stage the house, how much to ask, and when to list it. It was a perfect plan where we sold the house for more than $11,000 above the asking price. Thank you Monica and Homelight!"

              • 24 April 2018Linda C. Hendricks208 Elm DriveLansdale, PA 19446To whom it may concern:I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Monica Armanino. I began working withMonica in November 2017. I had identified a number of realtors through listings on Zillow andcontacted them for assistance in looking at houses in the Lake Tahoe area. I indicated that I wanted torelocate from Philadelphia to an area receiving heavy snowfall and was on a cross country scoutingtrip, evaluating a number of potential relocation spots including the Lake Tahoe area where I would bestopping for a day. Monica responded immediately and was the first to do so while some of hercolleagues took several days or simply didnt respond. We talked extensively on the phone and she wasclearly interested in my quest, even suggesting additional snowy locations that I might consider. Sheimmediately began sending listings and discussed these with me to hone in on the type of house andneighborhood I desired. She also sent maps and newsletters to help familiarize me with thecommunities around the lake. Although due to an unavoidable conflict, Monica was not available thesingle day I was going to be staying in the Tahoe area, she arranged for a colleague to meet with me andtour the communities around the lake. She continued to send me listings and information after Icontinued on my journey. Monica expended a considerable effort on my behalf, even though mysituation was not routine and I hadnt even decided to move to the Tahoe area.As a result of Monicas diligence, the Lake Tahoe area became one of my top two potential relocationlocations. I scheduled a second trip, this time arranging to spend a week at a local airbnb to get thevibe of the area and determine if any of the local communities was a fit for me. Monica showed meproperties for six days running. Each morning Monica met me with a handful of listings and we lookedat houses all day. The next morning she came with another handful of listings, tailored to thepreferences I expressed the previous day. I was exhausted at the end of each day; but Monica found theenergy to review new listings every evening.Monica is intimately familiar with the Lake Tahoe area. She is an active member of the localcommunity and regularly takes advantage of the hiking and snow shoeing trails. Thus, she is veryfamiliar with the features and amenities of the different lake communities. In addition, she is able toshow properties on both the CA and NV side of the lake, a real plus that saved me the effort ofcontacting a second realtor to gain access to houses in NV. We visited some houses multiple timeswhen I needed a second, third or more visits to evaluate leading candidates against properties visitedsubsequently. Monica let nothing stop us. There was heavy snowfall and the stairs and entryways ofmany of the houses were buried under a foot or more of snow. Monica simply whipped out the shovelshe carried in the trunk of her car and proceeded to shovel our way in. Monica maintains a goodrapport with her colleagues and is well integrated into the local real estate community. On a couple ofoccasions I expressed interest in looking at a house that was not among the listings Monica had pulled.She was able to contact the listing realtor and quickly arrange for us to visit. When I expressed interestin a development which was under construction she was able to call the contractor whom she knew andarrange for a tour and discussion of future units.I did not anticipate making an offer on a house during this second trip. I had assumed I would needanother visit to take a serious look at houses. However, due to Monicas thorough efforts, I was veryfamiliar with what was available in my price range in Tahoe-Donner during my second visit. I made anoffer on a house; but the seller was clearly not willing to negotiate. However, I left town confident thatMonica was so familiar with what I wanted that she would be able to bring suitable houses to myattention and we could pursue matters long distance. One of the first houses Monica showed me wasideal and we visited it several times; but it had only just come on the market and was out of my budget.Monica informed me immediately when it dropped in price. With her guidance I was able to craft anoffer that was accepted. Monica handled the details to enable me to go through closing long distance. Istill cannot believe how smoothly everything went!In summary, Monica is an excellent realtor. She is a skilled listener who was able to quickly distillwhat features I wanted in a new house. She is well integrated into the local real estate community andintimately familiar with the communities around the lake. Monica is tireless. Thus, she was able helpme determine that Tahoe-Donner was a great fit for me and helped me find a house that is perfect forme. The strongest recommendation I can provide for Monica is that I will not hesitate to contact herwhen I next need the services of a realtor.Sincerely,Linda C. Hendricks
